About H7 Engineering

London-based H7 Engineering is a UK branch of Maxpro Pedicabs.TIG Welding Both H7 Engineering and Maxpro Pedicabs are involved in the design, development, and the production of pedicabs, rickshaws and cargo tricycles. H7 Engineering also operates a fleet of Maxpro pedicabs in London, offering services including pedicab hire for events. Running our own fleet helps us develop our products to perfection – learning from our riders’ experience, we always know which elements of pedicabs could do with some improvement. H7 Engineering is a member of the London Pedicabs Operators Association and it cooperates with several pedicab and rickshaw operators nationwide.

For production of our pedicabs and rickshaws we use CNC machining centres to ensure our components are made with the toughest tolerances.
All our components are hand welded with TIG technology to ensure that there is a highest quality of welds. Chassis analysis
Once produced, all our coponents are carefully wrapped and prepared for the shipping in order to ensure that the goods arrive to it's destination untouched.
At Maxpro Pedicabs we put such a great effort into our research & development. Having in a full control the entire production processes enables us to respond quickly and efficently to make any changes in our production. Before serial production, all our components are designed and analysed using a sophisticated 3D software packages such as AutoCad, EdgeCam and SolidWorks.
By doing virtual analysis we are able to test the components under different forces and stresses before we even make a first prototype.

Here is our logic:

Before we make a prototype the chassis are analysed in 3D. Frames have to be the strongest elements of the whole rickshaw in order to make sure these are safe to use for years of hard work.
Individual components are also carefully analysed. Our years of experience show us how difficult it is to foresee the raliability of every part tha is why decided to check every single piece of our rickshaws. The red marks on the image show the high stress point of that component letting us know to redesign that area of the pedicab.

Could i go into london with a pedicab and start charging people for rides?

Would i need a license or will the police stop me. And where can i get a pedicab in london? How much do pedicab drivers tend to get on average a week?

you will need permission from the Council & without that you won't get public insurance....and without that...you'll have problems.
unsure of how much they earn...sorry!

Which exact place in central london is there a huge demand of pedicab/rickshaw passengers?

Only the tourists use them because they are overpriced and unlicensed. Personally they are parasites blighting the London streets.
You can always find them hovering like vultures outside theatres when the show is about to end looking for tourists to prey on.
