Business Proposed to Build Solar Recumbent Bicycles in Portland
A novel kind of transportation called the ‘ELF’ is coming to Portland, Oregon. The name comes from electric, light and fun. The ELF is a new style of recumbent bicycle with a solar panel shell surrounding it. Inventor and company founder Rob Cotter’s business includes plans to build the bikes where they are sold.
