Weighing In


A few days ago, I put some trikes through a switcheroo process, mainly to set up a trike for delivery to fringe furniture. This involved removing the seat and fairing from this trike and getting the tailbox from the electric trike.  So rather than just do the switcheroo, I weighed a few parts when they were separated from trikes. 

Minimum weight for timber tailbox is just below 4.3 kg, this is when the panels and lid of the box is swapped out to corflute tailbox. In the pic it has a Ventisit seat pad which is not strictly necessary and could be removed if required.

The timber tailbox with timber panels and lid weighs just over 5.4 kg, and the fibreglass seat with 3d printed plastic and supports weighs about 2.2. The fairing weighs 1.4.

All for now, Regards
