Industrial Designer Builds A Plywood EV Tricycle
Fernando Ponce questioned why a bike frame needed to be made of metal and found a cheaper, more adaptable alternative.
Fernando Ponce who hails from Buenos-Aires has created an electric powered tricycle sized for adults. The twist comes from his choice of materials for the frame. Ponce sandwiched two sheets of cheap plywood together which other components were bolted to. Rather than need an expensive welder and a custom fabrication jig to construct a metal tube frame, this plywood one can be made with common woodworking hand tools. The bike is powered by a motor in the front wheel which gets energy from a rechargeable battery mounted in the frame.
