    Default Hey Guys, The BEX Elio alternate

    It's me again, the funny looking Australian guy in China who was developing a Trike until my heart broke, and not by a girl! :-) Recovering well, but the Trike is on standby, and in the meantime ...

    Some of you may be aware of about 10 years ago the Elio Motors 3 wheel, tandem 2 seat, econocar was announced as a commercial project, with deposits called for and stockmarket options.

    Over 22,000 people paid a $1000 premium deposit, over 45,000 more put $100 deposit for a ticket number, and many also bought stocks.To this day Elio Motors has not produced a single car. You can Google the whole story if you don't already know it.

    So I figured there must be a few of the customers out there who still want one, I was right, there is, so I first built a rough prototype to figure layout, seen here:

    And now have built a pre-production prototype that is close to the mark, still a few things to figure out, but quite happy with where it's going.

    Here's the first test drive ...

    will drop some build pictures in the next few posts later.

    The bodyshell is now starting to be developed, but the will be a naked version as well.
