    Awesome, congratulations to you and your team. But you mention that TOTAL COST of this trike is Rs.46,670 (APPROX ~550 USD) and the price is almost equal to local 70cc motor bike.

    Anyway brother congrats once again and thumbs up for this solar trike

    Try making a matchbox at home and it may cost you over a few hundred rupees.

    Google "Mass Production".

    The thing is that i would had appreciated their work if they had came up with an something that had made on their own i am sorry to say that in this project they just tighetened the screw on parts they got their hand,and this actually can be done by any person with mind and tools,we pakis dont have the guts to "aim high" or have a standard which leads to a street guy saying
    "bambo ha yar"after watching stuff like this
    these 2-3 universities mke our public running like dog for a bone at the time of admisssions ,atleast 3000 graduates pass out from these so called "top notch" universities every year,now name any thing worth applausable nationaly or internationaly we have seen in last decade by a paki engineer (i am not talking about stupid thing like running a cart)even if u say that pak has no platfors and every one goes abroad but i havent seen them do good and making a name even abroad so what i meant to say that we should brag for some thing we actually do for our country not for ...........
    Note that this is positive criticism not meant to degrade any one

    I dont have any part to play in it brother. Read it somewhere today so felt like sharing with fellow PWheelers.

    We all should appreciate the effort, it was a prototype and I think these lads have exceptional talent and by further research and funding they can achieve a lot more.
