Even though I would rather enhance the protection in the passenger area, this Russian Muravey converted for passenger transport might be quite an inspiration for when I eventually get a small motorcycle to convert into a trike.

Those reverse-trikes look good, but the lack of a rear suspension makes them unsuitable for rough terrain conditions.

But anyway, a cargo trike with the load compartment behind the cockpit still seems more reasonable, since the forward visibility won't be so affected by some bulkier items.

BTW this one was electric.
