Abstract: Traditional rickshaw are powered by the rider and therefore slow and energy sapping. To reduce energy usage and move fast enough for city traffic, the human powering system is replaced by a motorcycle engine. The modified rickshaw consists of a motorcycle with the rear wheel removed and attached to a passenger compartment to sit 3 passengers. The drive system consists of a chain drive coupled to a sprocket on a shaft that constitutes an axle on the passenger compartment. The chassis and body of the passenger‟s compartment were constructed in the form of a space frame and has coiled spring and damper suspension system. The modified rickshaw was tested and has a maximum speed of 50km h when fully laden. The system is statically and dynamically stable.
