|The Afritrike is a light yet sturdy human powered load bearing 3 wheeler
designed for rural area applications. The Afritrike project came forth from a contract by the
Department of Transport of Kwazulu Natal for a prototype batch. It was decided to design a
tricycle chassis using where possible standard bicycle components, thereby ensuring low spare
parts cost and good availability. The design entails a steel structure with drive train and wheel
mounts that can be fitted to the rear wheel fork of virtually any mountain bike frame.
