The vehicle I am building is intended as a commuter so it is a single-seat tadpole trike powered by a small motorcyle engine; 250 - 350cc with fuel injection. I currently commute year-round on a motorcycle and just don't enjoy the cold rainy winter rides as much as I used to... For the body I am using a semi-monocoque built of carbon fiber/nomex honeycomb panels (I used to work for an aerospace composites manufacturer so I have a number of panels that were consindered unacceptable for aircraft use but are perfectly sound) with fiberglass over foam for the body. As for styling think of a cross between Trev and the California Commuter.
