Specifications are subject to change without notice as we constantly seek to improve Worksman Cycles

Electric Cycles are to be operated by people 18+ years old.

**Notes about Carrying Capacities: While other companies put unfounded inflated weight capacity figures based upon no facts, we at Worksman Cycles actually put weight capacities far less than the true capabilities of the cycles, as we take into consideration not only what the cycle will be able to hold, but what is a safe operational weight. Worksman Industrial Tricycles are simply more durable than other brands and have a 100+ year track record to prove it.

As good as it gets
This is my second PAV3, the first one wasn't electric and at the time Worksman did offer the package. I now purchased the electric PAV3 and I love it. They made a lot of little changes which the trike is better for it. It's a strong trike, well constructed for many years of enjoyment.
Thanks again Worksman's !
