Design of an electrically assisted human powered trike

Downloaded CAD software from eMachine Shop and drew up and quoted several of the machined parts. Rocker arms are about $90/ea for two or $50/ea for four. Will try to optimze design to reduce part count and use as many common components as possible. Software is very useful for instant quotes on simple 3 axis or waterjet parts – cannot import existing solid models into software so models need to reconstucted for quotes.
