message received guys. Disc brakes it is. Sometimes my imagination runs wild.Working on a design for a tricycle similar to the Loadrunner but with huge wheels like the Gladiator. Then the thought hit me that I would like to have a coaster brake. Has anyone tried this or similar before?
I did originally. The batts were in the tall box immediately behind the seat. Sadly, the electrics crapped out after only 500 miles,Very similar Sir Joey. It appears that you also went electric,which was also in my plans.
I noticed the front wheel motor. I have the same setup on my Schwinn Meridian trike. Built a battery box in back on mine too and yes the controllers seem to be the weak link in the system, i've had to change mine after 2 years and now the lead acid batteries have started going after 2 1/2 years. Still cheaper than my old truck was to drive. I quit driving back in '16. Retired now and couldn't see the sense in spending the money for Insurance . For trips longer than a few miles I use Uber.I did originally. The batts were in the tall box immediately behind the seat. Sadly, the electrics crapped out after only 500 miles,
so I removed them. This trike is one of the few I still have left, but the batt box is now just an empty box, & the trike is strictly an HPV.
I planned on reviving the electrics someday as a push trailer, but can't afford to just yet. Still don't know what the actual problem was,
but I've always suspected it was the controller.
