How to make a brilliant travel tool? To Experience the powerful speed and maneuverability, you can learn from James Biggar, used a modified late 1980's Suzuki 250 Quadrunner chassis, and Yamaha Banshee hubs, brakes, and steering knuckles to make an electric trike.

A beast trike with 111 km/h

You must won't believe, James Biggar built an electric three wheels trike "Cyber Trike" with Grepow High discharge rate lithium polymer battery and reach more than 110km/hr. James spent a month of time to refitted James's friend left to his four-wheeler, and blending the ability and twice the torque of an avg sport motorcycle to give "Cyber Trike" a stronger traction and Stability, you'll be cornering faster and can easily navigate around obstacles on the trail. Let's take a look at how powerful it is: [embed]https://www.facebook.com/RenewableSystemsTechnology/videos/2301376893492386/[/embed]

The Speed Testing of Cyber

How to bulit the "Monster"? Here is the full video of electric trike:


At the beginning of the video, you might found that James chose an old and rusty four-wheeler to reform, and renovate. For James, this four-wheeled has a distinctive meaning, which is why he insisted on reforming it. The original quad belonged to a good friend of James Biggar, he loved four-wheeling and spent most of his free time in the trails. He was selling parts from the old quad before he was diagnosed with and passed away due to terminal brain cancer back in '17. James received the old chassis from his family shortly after, in the condition that you see at the beginning of the video. It was intended to go in our scrap bin, but James couldn't toss it because of too many memories within them. Therefore, James decided to put some life back into it with a new purpose.
