Organic Transit ELF owners?

Any Organic Transit ELF owners out there who can answer some questions? My employer is thinking about acquiring one for outreach/promotion, and we'd like some perspectives from those with experience, particularly on some of the optional accessories like doors, the floorboard, and locking mechanisms. Since I'm the "bike guy" in the office, I've offered to help, but I know nothing about trikes, electrics, or anything other than old fashioned two wheel bicycles.

If anyone has a similar vehicle (pedal powered, electric assist, some sort of enclosure) that they think compares favorably to the ELF, I'd love to hear about that too. Is there some place better than Bike Forum where these types of vehicles get discussed? Searching has found only a few relevant posts.

Try endless sphere although it's mainly high powered bike DIY guys. Aren't there any forums for their owners?

I don't hang out much in BF, so I didn't see this last December.
I have an ELF. There's a public facebook forum, https://www.facebook.com/groups/orga...nsitelfowners/ and a private fb group for owners.

The OT doors are half-doors. I prefer the clear plastic full side shields from Tonkatronix. I don't have the floor option. I need to bolt on a piece of aluminum bar stock to my lock mechanism to make my trunk lock work again.

Feel free to PM questions to me, or to ask in the facebook forum.

I can answer some of your questions and most if not all on the mechanics of this vehicle.

I am cert #1 for being trained to work on the ELF.

Theres a short video of me driving it on my facebook page for Electric Pete's E-bikes.
