Tadpole configuration with a Caterpillar diesel in the back driving the rear wheel. Before you cough and sputter, Cat makes some very small 2- and 3-cylinder diesels that are perfect for this. Loremo, eat your heart out.

Side-by-side seating for two. I know tandem is slipperier, but I want to be able to talk to my passenger. VW front beams since it's proven and easy to get.
