Hi All, been meaning to post this for a quite a while now, about 12 months ago I started to build the Deltawolf with the intention to make it electrically assisted and here it is. It's still a work in progress, but I use it for commuting as it is currently.

Spec.
7speed conventional bicycle gears with a large 68t chainring
72v LiPo4 battery and a 750w motor, the power is driven by a twist grip throttle as well as pedal assist sensor.
It has a limited mode so will only provide power to 16mph and a non limited mode which I've had to 40mph
Range is estimated to about 80-100km on a single charge, I didn't want to risk any further incase battery went flat but had done 70km and still had 60v left 54v is battery/speed controller lower limit.
Has all the lights a road legal motorcycle would have, even brake light, all LEDs and a horn!
26" wheels with large soft tyres
Built in charger
Weather proof box with room for my work laptop for commuting
2 sets of disk brakes on rear and brake on front
Soft seat
Rear facing mirror
Garmin mounts
And a flag!

Yes I have a freehub on the motor sprocket side as well as so both the motor and or conventional pedal driven cassette can be used independent of each other or at the same time

No, its size and position is such that when your sat in it its hidden by the riders silouete so there is no additional frontal drag other than the rider, certanly a tail wind may help push the e-trike but would have to be more than 30mph or 50kph to make a notiable impact.
