I build electric-assist
cargo trikes and rickshaws. Someday again soon, perhaps I can
build one for you.
This project is currently on hold due to our principal funding
source drying up in the economic downturn of 2008. Our near-term
goal is to raise $150K in order to complete the prototyping
process. This final prototype model will be reworked until
we are satisfied that it can meet longterm safety and durability
standards. The next step from there will be to go into small
scale manufacturing of lots of 3-5 at a time.
Contributions to assist in the furtherance of this process gladly
accepted at the bottom of this page.
Keep checking back for updates or get on the Frankentrikes Announce List in order to be the first to hear when we get rolling again.

While this product is still evolving, we welcome your inspiration, input and support. We are currently interviewing for partner investors and/or partner developer-builders who would like to become deeply involved in the growth of this enterprise. We would still like to take this project to the mass manufacturing level for the health and well-being of our country, people, and planet.

enterprise is still young, and growing a manufacturing operation is
resource- and capital-intensive. If you would like to see
this social enterprise succeed...
