A homemade velomobile with an electric motor could be fun. The trick is to keep them narrow enough to share the road or fast enough to keep up with traffic. One way to reduce width in a two seat is to position the passenger seat a few inches behind the driver seat to off set the hip placement. For those who want a set of plans of a sports car body check the archives of Motor Trend for the paper model Mercedes Benz C-III and Aero Corvette. Use the streamlined fastback version of the C-III especially if you want rear facing seats for the children.
