Brixton Bike Car
A back-to-back recumbent tandem which can be used as a van with only one driver. Two of them fit together side by side to form a car on the rare occasions (baby, loadcarrying) when 2 tandems are not better. Additional refinements: the ability to lean around corners, full fairing for efficiency and for building in solar panels for the electric assist motor that also generates electricity while braking. The bikes telescope in length so they can be carried on a train.
I have drawings. Just need a prototyper.
