The third shot is where I mounted the batteries under the seat and hanging across the frame and over the chain again using the same type of building brackets bolted together and U clamped on, the batteries are basically sitting at floor level (maybe 2" off the ground) to keep the c of g down as I like cornering at speed.
Other than the all up weight being higher the trike feels,rides and handles as it did without the batteries and motor.
Nice stuff! It reminds me of this one http://youtube.com/watch?v=zlEi97dcQvk
but you managed to get the motor/battery even lower. Pretty cool.
