Welcome to Frankentrikes!

  I build electric-assist front loading 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 near-term goal is to raise $150K in order to complete the prototyping process. This final prototype model will be reworked until we are satisfied that it can meet longterm safety and durability standards.  The next step from there will be to go into small scale manufacturing of lots of 3-5 at a time.  Contributions to assist in the furtherance of this process gladly accepted at the bottom of this page.

Keep checking back for updates or get on the Frankentrikes Announce List in order to be the first to hear 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.

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

We need your help!
