Iam gonna build a fglass/kevlar or also a carbon/innegra unibody trike: use imagination with bad sketch:



No nose, top, or rear cover. It will have a milan type carbon boom w/tiller steering. Complete with chain wheels,seat,boom, bridge,rear wheel well. Hard-tail 3 wheeler. It will have no walls where your elbows are/easy access. It will have closed heel wells so your feet cannot fall and hurt yourself / has happened before. Maybe complete late fall 2020. Also w/Big Leaf tops/trike canopies on facebook. Ed Miller and his incredible youtube channel.

Can use rohloff at rear or cassette. Would be total maintenance free with PINION gearbox up front on the boom. Macpherson struts for front suspension. 90mm sturmey archer drum brakes. All off-shelf parts. Carrying plenty of touring gear behind seat,, it does. This is a first class carbon/innegra or fglass/kevlar trike, but the secret is “cheap as a hi-line store bought trike.“



1)WAW rear suspension (can be purchased from katanga/check out their youtubes) on first velo l built & sold and on this carbon lowracer l built (thread in another section).
2) also: Zoom in!!,,,, sturmey-archer drum brake with 10 speed cassette on rear wheels/26” or 29”.

this guy on west coast usa fitted a set of quest carbon wheel wells to his trike. Great start for coroplast shell too.



l would make a carbon balsa floor for under seat to behind rear tire, then another carbon floor from wheel wells to nose of the coroplast body. Installed with rivnut squeeze kit from ebay.
