Some time ago we sold a
number of front ends of our front wheel drive electric folding bike
to a company, that converted them into fitting on the front of
standard wheelchairs, effectively making a powered wheelchair trike.
They then ripped off the design and had it copied in Korea. It
was easy enough to do, take the front end of a folding bike, put an
electric hub motor in the front wheel add a battery controller
and a hand throttle, fix a tube under the seat of a wheelchair, slide
the front end of the folder into the tube and lock it in place,
result 3 wheel wheelchair with power. cost, Chinese motor controller
throttle battery old folding bike some tubing should do the lot for
less than $400.00 -- Dan Hornby
