    Greetings from Indianapolis, IN. I have recently built a delta trike and I want to use an electric motor for power assist. I have a 24VDC 200W motor from a kids scooter.

    Is it possible to use such a motor to charge the batteries when coasting? What kind of electrical circuit would be required?

    That's the $10,000 question:

    We're all sitting around waiting for somebody to buy a $90 Trek dyna-hub, hotwire that thing, so we can light them up like Christmas trees.

    It will be done, and within months I'd reckon.....

    If automobiles can use regenerative braking, is it all that difficult to use the same concept on a trike coasting down hill?
