I build electric-assist
cargo trikes and rickshaws. Someday again soon, perhaps I can
build one for you.
This project is currently on hold due to our principal funding
source drying up in the economic downturn of 2008. Our longterm
goal is to raise $50K to build a hybrid electric cargo-shaw prototype
for testing. This vehicle has already been designed and only lacks the
funding to become real. This final model will be reworked until
we can go into small scale manufacturing of lots of 3-5 at a time.
Contributions gladly accepted at the bottom of this page.
Keep checking back for updates or get on the Frankentrikes Announce List to find out if and when we get rolling again.

While this product is still evolving, we welcome your inspiration, input and support. We are currently interviewing for partner investors and/or partner developer-builders who would like to become deeply involved in the growth of this enterprise. We would still like to take this project to the mass manufacturing level for the health and well-being of our country, people, and planet.

enterprise is still young, and growing a manufacturing operation is
resource- and capital-intensive. If you would like to see
this social enterprise succeed...
