Thanks. That makes sense. So far I don't think Washington State has that sort of regulation, though building it that way makes sense anyway.

I am going to consider placing my headlights inboard of the body with servo operated swing arms to get the proper height.

Here is the Lightweight Car Company Rocket

Have you all read about the Honda 125 2 wheeler that did 214mpg? Pretty amazing. I just wrapped up with some of the front body work on my reverse trike today. Its turning out pretty good. But know you all are really inspiring me to do something really efficient

What do you all think about this? The trike that I've built so far uses Miata front suspension which is pretty lightweight for a car. Since you all have got me on the idea of making a light and efficient trike I'm gonna try to find one of the scooters that are reverse trikes then widen the front suspension enough to sit down more like a car to get the aerodynamics similar to Cali commuter
