The membership page (which I acknowledge I am yet to officially sign up for) states "All converters, builders, owners, drivers and all round EV enthusiasts are w...

However, to quote MikeG "90% of people won't be doing a DIY conversion, let's be realistic." Most of the discussions i...

Registering Twike in Australia?

Thanks, Tim. I see you've got a background in this area (scouting around other topics!) What is the approval process? I see that for modified vehicles etc it is possible to get an inspector to look at the vehicle in person to sign off on compliance with the ADRs. Can this be done for production vehi...

Registering Twike in Australia?

Hello all, newbie here. I have been dreaming about Twike ownership ( www.twike.com ) and am wondering if anyone knows a bit more about the practicalities of registering something like this? - or even better, knows specifically about Twikes?
