"The Rubberneck" (due to use of Rubbermaid Roughneck storage containers plastic) No clutch or transmission. Good handling compared to scooters, with large wheels and weight kept as low as possible. Can be upgraded to 48V and regenerative braking for greater speed and range by changing the controller to #WEV-700 and adding a 12V group 24 battery at the back. Can also be converted back to the original gasoline version as no irreversable modifications were required. 5HP Honda and eCycle MG13 for series hybrid/range extender
