Hi,
I'm Captain Ice Cream and I am looking for Company to work with to help me to build a new generation of my 3-wheeled Ice Cream Mopeds.

I was on the ABC reality show, "Shark Tank" last week pitching the sharks on my venture. If you want to see my ice cream moped in action, please click here: http://abc.go.com/watch/shark-tank/225872/248939/week-14?cid=fullepisodeaccess

I would like my new generation of ice cream mopeds to be electric and I am looking for engineering help. I can fabricate the finished designs in Los Angeles.

I believe I saw an electric moped that may have been built by Bob Schneeveis(?) when I was in Palo Alto this past November. It was a bitchin' tube-framed, belt-driven, electric, hard-tailed "moped" that would make a great front end for my next-generation of ice cream mopeds...

If any of you know Bob and can get me in touch with him, I would really appreciate it.

Also, I am open to suggestions as to how I might build an electric version of my beloved ice cream moped. E-mail me: captainicecream@gmail.com
Thanks,
Tim "Captain Ice Cream" Gavern

Hi,

best of luck with your future business and electric fleet!

Thought this 3 wheeler solution for 2010 from e-max could be of interest? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eGAcbFiiVys See at approx 1:36 onwards.

Those don't seem to be sold in the United States: http://www.e-max-scooter.com/dealers/list.php Too bad, too. I really like that little three wheeled scooter.

...from Australia....

I will be manufacturing an electric 3 wheeler ( a tilting one )in 2011. It's a cargo scooter, primarily designed for Postal and Pizza type work. It has a trailer hitch to enable towing..... in your case you would need a trailer for your ice-creams - as the bike itself is reasonably narrow.

Target specs - 10KW, 50mph, 60mile range, dual hub drive (rear wheels) 60V 60AH LiFePo4 batteries.

I have an automotive design company engineering it for manufacture, and the bikes will be made somewhere in Asia, aim to retail in America for $6,000. Fully compliant to all design regulations.

It's an expensive process to get a bike designed and manufactured....approx $2.5million US, will see the first ones roll off the production line.

Is the Ice-cream container refrigerated? How much does it weigh(plus the ice-cream) ? How far do you expect to travel per day? What are the Californian regulations on three-wheelers?

These factors will determine the feasibility of a EV ice-cream three wheeler. The actual cost of adaptation from a two-wheel to three, is relatively small. In fact the three wheel design removes a lot of the engineering problems associated with two wheel balance and provides extra room for batteries.

We adapted several Vectrix VX1's to tow advertising trailers, before building a three wheel vehicle exactly the same as you are contemplating. The difficulties of range and weight will be your main problems.(also cost).

Good Luck!

It's made by TAIWANESS's factory.
500w,48v,lead acid,12ah/18ah,with the top speed---21km/h,during all the riding time,the one cycle range is 45km(12ah)//78km(18ah)
