Just a sketch . Oops, this NOT the Type Eleven, it's the Type Ten, on twenty inch wheels.
This is a picture of the Type Ten as it looks CURRENTLY.
The Type 9, as my Daughter designed it.
The last Type 9 Fiberglass Ladies Bicycle drawing, in watercolor.

I just wanted to pass the latest sketch around, for your perusal and comments. I want to do the rear panniers in Fiberglass, instead of Coroplast (Corrugated Plastic). I will have some old Coroplast Panneirs left over, maybe I will donate them to a Thrift Store?
The Fairing in the first sketch is a throwback to the Type 3, which had a "Dustbin Fairing" B&W photo, circa 1987.
The Type Ten Fairing is actually an Apple iMac Computer Case, which saved a lot of work, compared to hand-laid fiberglass.
The Type Eleven has new Panniers, double the size of the original panniers (Black Coroplast instead of White).
This has been an update from the NFA Vehicles Laboratory.
