    That was the smallest size of std lead/acid car battery that wal mart has. I can get you the number size off of it if you want, but dont remember it right now.

    NO pic yet, but my battery box is left side in front of and welded to the left torsion tube. It is hidden and the easiest way to in and out access is to left the body up off the trike frame some.

    Only a few inch's, but it is needed room if one want's to take the battery in and out.

    Really like how Rex's is set up, just one sweet ride for sure.

    Have you looked at hot rod car stuff?

    I remember seeing battery boxes that load from the bottom.

    Ahh....I remember....lowered little trucks.

    Jack up high enough to get under. Lift battery up into holder frame. Then swing the bottom shut. Then a couple safety bolts to make sure the bottom dont come open.
