This is a project documentation page for the Tuk Truk, an electric trike vehicle donated to the makerspace and is available for members to contribute to.

This vehicle is no longer here after a tool sale in 2016. It has found a new home on a nearby island.

Project Log[edit]

March 2016

- Looked at documentation that came with it and started entering key details into this wiki page.

- Seems like the batteries don't charge anymore. Will have to get some new ones. Think bout lithium for more compact power and a lighter vehicle.

March 2015 - Gave it a test ride! Runs pretty well, can go around the block to Ricci for supply runs.
