Avian Motors Prototype
Jeff Kotowski brought his first Avian prototype to share with us at our recent Davis EV meeting on July 14, 2007. There is no skin, just structure, so use your imagination. Tandem two-seater with a single drive wheel in the back. No, there are no real specs, as this is just a proof of concept. Info on Avian Motors is found here.
There's Jeff. :)
Motor is forward of the rear pivot, so a transfer chain was
used to put a new drive axle at the pivot point to keep the chain tension
even when the rear suspension flexes.
Batteries are under the floor, and accessed through a large
panel to which the driver seat is bolted.

the police parking lot. ;)
Me, checking the rear seat fit.
And pretending like Jeff would let me drive it.
