Thanks but I was hoping you could elaborate on it a bit more. Is it mechanical or electric? Where does it drive from? Could it be used on a sidecar or 2 wheeler? Where did you get it? How much does it cost?
I've ridden her trike.
There's a toggle switch with a guard/cover you use to supply power to the electric reverse.
You then push a button and the electric motor drives the bike backward.
There's no speed control on the reverse motor and it's actually kinda fast so make sure you look over your shoulder before you hit the button.
As far as I can tell it's basically a heavy duty starter motor (for a car) complete with a Bendix-type starter drive & solenoid on it.
Hit power and it simultaneously engages the solenoid to push the drive gear onto sprocket on the rear end & spins the starter motor.
Let go of the power switch and the solenoid disengages the drive gear from the sprocket and the starter stops turning.
Just like starting a car, only using an electric motor to turn the wheels instead of the engine.
Most kit trikes with reverse work this way & I'm pretty sure Goldwings do the same thing.
Not sure if HD trikes use an electric motor on reverse, I've never ridden one newer than a 1957 Servi-Car.
