I actually saw someone riding around on one of the The 14 M.P.H. Coolers at the Woodward Dream Cruise. At first I was amazed... and 3 seconds later I thought "wow, that is just begging for a DUI".... or whatever the three letter acronym is that they use these days for drunk driving.

theclencher -

I like the first one (but I'd get it in Attachment 1044 Yellow!!!!!!!!!). Is it $6K for a kit or the whole shebang? It's definitely a fun around-town scooter.

fun, yes! as a toy... 30 mph tops? 60-80 mpg out of 50cc? me thinks it's prolly a chinese honda 50 knock-off drivetrain. honda 50 cubs were supposed to be good for 150-180 mpg? so they lost 100 mpg somewhere along the line... also a galoot like me would use up 3/4 of the max capacity leaving any grown passenger at the curb
I was thinking Chinese knock-off too. I didn't notice that it was another member of the "under 30 MPH" club, . Definitely an in-town scooter. There are lots of 4-wheeled Chinese dirt-buggies at the motorcylce/ATV shops.

Here's a closeup of the steering :

Attachment 1045

Anyone recognize this layout?

the ev guys will recognize that tall skinny thing

i don't think i've seen the streamliner bent before
I am pretty sure that the tall-red-skinny thing is something that George Clooney bought. I am sure he has moved on to a Tesla by now.

The red, skinny thing is a Tango from commutercars.com . I'd take one of those over a tesla simply because it's so funky looking. It's a tandem 2 seater with a quoted range of 80 miles. Not bad. It also accelerates 0-60 in 4 seconds. I would expect less than 80 miles, though, if you drive it like that.
