Dunton Tricycles

In the Dunton electric tricycle, the batteries and electric motor are located on either side of the front wheel. The latter transmits its power directly to the front wheel using a gear transmission. As shown in Fig. 91, the whole mechanism is housed in boxes which are attached to the front fork perpendicular to the axle. The switch for driving forwards and backwards is located on the steering lever; it can be set to three speeds, namely 6, 12 and 18 km per hour, and when reversing to 8 km. The filling of the accumulators costs about 1 M. 20 Pf. And is enough for about 60 km.
