My thanks for to Rich Richardson for these photographs of his "Red Car". Rich writes that he built the vehicle out:
1/2" hardwood dowel and plywood. It is covered with dacron cloth
and painted with urethane. It had two speeds an 8 HP engine and would do 35 MPH. I also build a machine I call them Raptor recumbent trikes. They are human powered three wheelers that weigh 42 pounds , have 15 speeds, dual front brakes, and are great fun to ride. They replace my car most of the time. They are pleasant to take on a ten or twenty mile ride on the bike paths or just run to the market for groceries. Note the large basket in back for that purpose.
