Sun Baja: Custom Fat Tire Trike

E-Bike KC created this unique custom fat tire trike for the Land Institute of Salina Kansas.  Using the popular Sun Baja fat tire trike as a base, a custom heavy-duty frame was made by Cycle QMX.  Several 3-D printed parts were designed to allow the battery to be mounted under the basket. Upgrades include Shimano hydraulic brakes on the front wheel and Cloud-9 comfort seat.
