It’s been sometime since I’ve made a post to my blog. Other interest (learning to play the guitar) has taken over some of my hobby time. Yesterday I went to Dallas to visit my son. He has a CNC machine and I inquired about the possibility of cutting a lap steel guitar for me. Our conversation eventually turned to recumbents. He asked if I had seen the CNC cut velomobile kit that Rick OBrien had put on the market. I had followed the thread on BROL but had not known that the kit was now available for sale.
I read a recent thread on BROL where he stated he has suspended sales of the kit while he investigates the possibility of redesigning to fit different models of trikes. Until then, the site is down.
SpearHead Velomobile now offers an all-weather, aerodynamic, CNC cut coroplast velomobile body kit for your ICE Sprint RS and FS. It may fit other models of trikes with, similar wheel base. The kit comes complete with proprietary hot glue sticks, fasteners and assembly manual. According to his site, there are no cable ties and no taped joints waiting to fail from sunlight and weather.
The kit has an introductory price offering of $499 and a mounting kit is available for $249 plus shipping. You’ll find contact information on his website.
This turns you trike into a really nice looking, aerodynamic shaped velomobile. Best of luck with your new venture.
