Hi,
Looking around and found the site. Followed a link on someones' home-made aero-shell for a pickup.
Hope to be making an electric (or hybrid) trike, based on the Tri-Magnum (from the '70s?). Want to power it with a bolt-on hybrid conversion that I came across, elsewhere, using flow battery technology, where the energy is stored in the electrolyte (tanks of liquid, rather than tons on metal), instead of the plates (common battery technology). Granted, the architecture for this is not in place, but, at least it's feasible.
Also a back-to-the-lander, hoping to get into running a homestead, soon. Self sufficiency is the key to the future.

Later,
Jeff

Welcome to the site.

That sounds like an ambitious project. Good luck and I hope to hear more on it.
