The Victorian Futurist's Electric Cycle - Hammacher Schlemmer. This is the electric tricycle made in England that evokes the spaceflight-inspired fantasy of H.G. Wells and Jules Verne with a rocket-shaped nosecone that forms its passenger section. Only available from Hammacher Schlemmer and powered by a 36-volt rechargeable battery, the tricycle’s 500-watt electric motor provides assisted pedaling in addition to a seven-speed dérailleur for purely human-powered operation.
A new hybrid trike called the GinzVelo aims to radically change the way people travel within cities. The cycle’s inventor Peter Ginzburg calls it a “human-electric hybrid vehicle” or HEH vehicle for short. The contraption relies on a 500 W electric engine to supercharge your pedal power over 30 miles per hour. This hybrid human-electric trike can travel up to 100 miles on a single charge
call me crazy - but I never learned to ride a bike and am now too old to go around sporting scraped knees & whatnots. If I fall off this, all that'll hurt is my pride! (hmmm, I wonder if I need a helmet for this? ;)
1896 Riker Electric Tricycle - Andrew L. Riker produced his 1st electric car in 1894 and built electric vehicles in Elizabethport, New Jersey until the company was absorbed by the Electric Vehicle Company in 1902. Riker gained acclaim for his development of high speed electric cars culminating w/ his 'Riker Torpedo' that set a world's record for speed (57mph) in 1901. In 1902 Riker then became vice-president of Locomobile, a gas powered marque. This car has a 1hp, 40v, electric motor.
