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
