Reikshaws

reikshaw with Flevo-trike steering principle

A reikshaw with Flevo-trike steering principle. To the driver it is just like riding a tandem. The passenger doesn't pedal.
This trike has been custom designed for a father who could take his handicapped son this way. Because the back-part does not tilt, the passenger will feel rather some sideways forces. It has an arm-chair with much side-support, and a foot support.
Because there is much pressure on the front wheel, it is possible to climb pretty steep hills, in spite of the fact that only one person is pedaling.
