Business: www.FTNX.net  TRIBE Rules of Association  www.ftnexporting.com


We thank you for all enquires made regarding the ZBIKE. The following information  should satisfy such enquiries. No other information will be released until testing period begins. Please note as the project advances , prior aspect may change  or may  become more accurately defined.Please note ; do not distribute this webpage, as we are not yet  ready to formally advise further , aspect herein , which  is designed serve FTNX  USCT members  and invited others. The official ZEHEDBIKE  website will come online when  the project has passed the testing stage fully.

A two wheel covered ‘bicycle’  allows people to enjoy urban driving once more, with all the comforts of a car, without ever needing to buy emission laden fuel, batteries or use charging stations. The very affordable all ‘peoples’ bike is the first unique  standard model of its kind in this series. The second   device is  defined as ZEHEDAIR, which is another first, defined as a  ZEHEDBIKE without  wheels, as we eliminate another high carbon emitting product - synthetic rubbers. Other ZEHED devices are currently  being investigated. 

 With the continuing success of  “International Trade and Successful  Intermediary” (ITSI) FTN exporting has scaled down commodity trading to only consider large revolving contracts of  NBC shipments, as we introduce ISPI. The publication ISPI will be our second formal publications describing intently once again, using actual experience, on how an informed intermediary could create an investment project  and use  the FTNX Beta Doctrine of Trade or  ITSI to  create markets  for the final product  created  via the final proposal  initiated under  an  investment project. The  PCT and ITS  looking towards other  entrepreneurial  aspect of large international  investment projects, can draw a wide inferences from ISPI, which will describe FTNX ZEHEDBIKE Investment Project in depth; to include aspects  about  creating the product and securing investment  funds thereafter. “Just like the doctrine dogma states- always secure the product first; applies in matters of ISPI as well.”

The ZEHEDBIKE will be ready for full production in 2026. The invention was fully created  and prototype  subsequently built by FTN Exporting  CEO and inventor Davide Giovanni Papa. Australian suppliers of Australian made or assembled  products may submit what they have to offer by the way of raw materials, to FTN exporting for filing and later reference, when the time comes  to formally introduce the Z-Bike to the world. Products we are unable to secure from within Australia  will be manufactured in our factory. Imported metals /products converted to parts within Australia are not accepted, as the criteria of the project requires that raw material used in the construction of the initial ZBIKE  must be  sourced in Australia (Shell and Frame and running gear without electronic components). Difficult to manufacture parts in particular electronic components which simply cannot be made in Australia due to unviable factors or lack of manufacturing experience or expertise  will be purchased from USA, England, Japan, Italy or Germany. The ZBike electrical components are the parts that we will be mostly importing. ZBIKE is a hand made product  carrying long lasting high quality very reliable ‘solid state’  components, to serve the transport industry with full consideration of curbing  climate change issues.  Sure, as many who have followed by postings over the decades know, I don’t believe in climate change and the nonsense associated with such; but many do. This product will test the conviction of such people.  In any case I do believe in the virtues of living on a planet with cleaner air.” 

Initial project will call for 422 workers ( and 75 apprentices) harbouring various skill sets  pertaining to carpentry  as well as fitting and turning and metal fabrication, leather work, is being resurrected. The flow on effect into the supply chain and export strings as a well as local retail sales will generate thousand of  added  jobs by default. Finished product to be sold Internationally  at first  in conjunction with selected FTNX USCT agents ( FTNX  will consign supply to selected and capable territorial agents ) Factory production line will be established in Bacchus Marsh, Victoria, Australia.  ZBIKE  prototype is nearing completion with  final certified  road testing to  take place in early  2025. A  new website will be incepted at this time dedicated to matters of the ZEHEDBIKE. No products from China will be considered  as the aim is to  produce a high quality product  locally and revive past manufacturing aspects which were once common in Australia; without relying on the use of  products from China. FTNX has been promoting such aspect for decades, when it first conceived the ZBIKE. 

Established Australian suppliers with no commitment or legally binding aspect  may informally  submit via email, what they have to offer in large quantities from 2026 as follows: 

A detailed list will be available from mid 2023

  1. Marine grade plantation ply wood /4 mm thick, 
  2. Chains, cogs, various compression springs, nuts, bolts.
  3. Hard steel flats, string steel, steel and aluminium rods and plates, 10 to 50 mm steel pipes. 
  4. Organic paints, sealants  
  5. Acrylic sheets @ 1.2 X 700 X 4 mm thick  
  6. Hard Rubber strip rolls with ZBIKE tyre pattern (as per car tyre compound,  50 mm wide X 20 mm thick flat tread only.No side walls. ) 
  7. Copper wiring and or other conductive material  
  8. Basic electronic  components including  relays,  DC  capacitors (3000 per month) , solid and flexible solar panels, switches and connectors, fuse box, wiring. 
  9. 12 Volt DC  250 watts DC electric motors at 1500/2500 RPM range is the standards aspect. USA markets and other countries who are allowed a higher power drive have a 600 watt motor shipped. Magnet brushed type of motors are sought, with thick high amp wiring and thick long stainless steel D shaft (12/15000+ units per year)  
  10. Climate change friendly finished leather /rabbit /sheep/kangaroo skin used for upholstery)
    The factory at  Bacchus Marsh will harbour a 1 MW solar array ( 4 acre) as well as 2 wind turbines,  to complement the energy used to a make the ZBIKE.  

FTNX will also need first grade  hard wired AC industrial grade hand tools  at the factory level  as the ZBIKE will be hand made. No robots used.
Only heavy duty quality producers of hand tools may submit the list for our considerations @  240 Volts AC. Tools are to come from Germany ,Italy,  Australia , U.K, Japan or USA (i.e Milwaukee , Bosch, Makita, AEG, etc, etc) Bench/hand  drills, saws, lathes, milling  machines, grinders, steel cutting, pipe bending, TIG welding, spray paint equipment etc.etc.

Manufacturers who are unable to produce and delivery no less than 1200 units per months as relevant, need not apply (i.e: 1200 acrylic sheets etc.etc.)  All contracts of supply  will serve a period of ten years minimum.When the time comes to announce this new’ first ever’ consumer based product , Australian suppliers ( and others)  already in our files will be advised first. Purchase prices /monthly supply quantities  discussed at such a time. Companies supplying FTNX with components will have their logo applied on our first public test of the ZBIKE, which will be seen by millions world-wide via You Tube and television. Companies from around the world may also submit  their willingness to supply in where such companies  will be approached  after exhausting  local capabilities  to supply  FTNX with the required components. No prices are sought at this time

Please submit what your company makes in PDF as per above basic list to include specifications.
All matters advised to FTNX is held as confidential.

A fully covered self charging  2 wheeled ‘bike’ ( built  sturdy like a car)  that requires 50% human energy and 50% solar energy to produce 100 percent efficiency without any emissions being produced. No batteries are used. One full crank of the ZBIKE peddle delivers a unique travel distance of 3.2 metres.  Solar energy is collected  and ‘stored’  to power its 250 watt motor  electric motors. The bike is not a ‘Pedelec’ type of bike. Standard features include,  ZBike to ZBike line of sight communication, radio, UV filtrations (to kill viruses entering the cabin) side windows, full dash and instrumentation, using a combination of buttons, switches as well as LED components, reverse, 2 doors/widows, disc brakes, air con, heater, indicators, lights, phone charger, seat belt,  and even a coffee cup holder.etc.etc. There is ‘no excuse’ not to leave the car at home for short trips. 

ZBike trunk  can carry an added 40 kilos (ideal for shopping). No gears are required as a special feature of its drive allows for torque to match the speed of the unique oversized ‘Chariot’ style back  wheel. The purpose of the ZBIKE is designed to  eliminate the use of the  petrol car for short trips, where at peak times often ‘one person’ is seen driving such petrol fuelled cars, suited to carry 4 people at long distances is not conducive to matters of curbing carbon emissions.This is the issue. Many people driving short distances in a vehicle designed to do a lot more other than polluting the air. Likewise, electric car manufacturing in the future will need a massive increase in the use of ‘dirty’ material for decades to comes, ironically at a time when carbon emissions are expected to reduce. It is  going to take 30 years before we see the benefits of electric cars - if any?  Recycling electric cars will also  become a major problem. To leave the petrol car at home for use in long trips, now serves specific purpose for the need of a reliable, practicable person efficient and friendly transport device, and therefore reducing emission accordingly. It will be ‘fun‘ to drive a ZBike, as it comes with full suspension and  hugs corners tightly. ‘Forget about self driving cars? Take a bus if you are that way inclined.  The ZBike will make driving fun once more.’ A ZBIKE is designed for lifetime use, where spare parts  and ease of replacing parts plays its ‘part’ in reducing  carbon emission  as the cost of ‘recycling’  products often cost more and produces more emission than when the product was made. Upon confirming the  viability of the clean ‘power pack’  used to drive the ZBike, a four wheel 2 seat passenger ZCar  is also on the drawing board, unlike anything offered to date. 

Planned obsolescence is now a thing of the past. Long lasting reliable  products are now the focus of future manufacturing basis world wide. ZBike will be able to reach high speeds but will be restricted  to not go beyond 50 KPH when under power. The ZBIKE is made for everyone to use for local suburban driving situations (including, Paramedic, heated food delivery, amphibian and police supercharged 600/750 Watt models are envisaged) Currently the ZBike will be offered at the affordable price of around AUD$ 5000.00/5500.00 (2022/23 basis) for the basic standard model @ EXW and AUD$ 7600.00 for the executive model. Licence to manufacture ZBikes in other states and countries  will be offered once the incepting  factory proves viability, as the need and demand for this kind of transport system will be great for many decades as climate change rhetoric escalates. Even Nordic countries where yearly availability of  sunlight is diminished, a complimentary  compressed air and/ or small 39cc Butane/LPG fuelled  electric generator will be included to ensure longer period of  clean sustained driving in colder climates, may be utilised as needed. The ZBIKE is built using the principle  of “over compensation” in where each part  used greatly  exceeds  international  minimum standards. This aspect  will ensure the  longevity status of the ZBike.The weight of the ZBike is an important factor as a ‘heavier’ and  stronger  ‘bike’ adds to the overall claims  made. Parts when needed, will be  inexpensive and repairs when needed, can easily be done is also an added unseen feature. The ZBike will have anti theft devices fitted as well.  Very low emissions to produce, no emissions when driving.

At this time, no IPO  issuance will be considered. Private funds will be secured  locally and internationally where 90% of net  profits are  returned to investor directly yearly as a dividend. FTNX as founder and inventor  will retain 10% stake for its  financial contributions and efforts made to incept the project.The investment value (90% stake ) is currently set at under  US$50,000,000.00. Local and federal government will also be approached to  serve part of this investment. ZBIKE will become profitable  within 16 months of operations commencing. Entering the export market is  already assured  via FTN exporting. 20,000 up to 40,000 ZBikes to be built  per year is planned, where maximum production capabilities to be arrived at by the end of the initial 16 months of commencing operations.  Other ZEHED devices are also  planned. Should ZBike factory need to rapidly expand after 2 years, current investors will have their capital (stake) paid out;  or as an option may be  converted to the share value  supporting an issuance of a prospectus or IPO, once the value of the operations become  a proven aspect.  Other  consumer friendly products will also be manufactured  as part of the over all basis. 

“There are those who have no idea about  the product they have initiated, but have the ability to raise  large amount funds to initiate such projects using plenty of hype and hot air in doing so. Then we have the many people who are able to create a much wanted products but don’t have  a ‘stone face’ nor the ability to raise  a large amount of funds to initiate an investment project. ZBike offer the latter insight intently.  We will release our findings in our new publication called ISPI  as the the ZBIKE  nears completion. Even if we fail to achieve our goals, our mistakes will be revealed for other to address. However upon success, entrepreneurs from all over the world will be able to apply matters found in ITSI and ISPI to develop their own large scale project - just like we have with little capital outlay.   

Keeping followers updated: Report

Assume the starting date of this investment project is 1 Jan 2022. 

26 May 2022: Prototype Frame is complete / wheels added. Shell is currently being  stressed tested.

6 June 2022: Prototype  take off pilot wheels a success. Once the bike reaches 8 KPH, two pilot wheels  mechanically  lift up, via force created via back wheel.The driver is now on two wheels. Pilot wheels automatically drops as speed falls below 8 kph. Motor testing is next : Motor being tried  to deliver power is a 12 Volt  250 watt 28 amp DC motor. The ZBIKE will meet all international standards but will be built to compliment  Australian standards as such, because of  its solid state electronics, ZBike  will allow  bigger motors   to  be easily swapped, without  the need to change standards (export models).  Australian  state bicycle  laws  requires no use of the motor when  taking off, for it to be classed as a ‘bicycle’ and have a motor not exceeding 250 watts of power. Since  most power  is consumed at take off, this aspect  actually greatly helps the ZBike unique  abilities and claims of performance made. The ZBike must  use peddles to take off  therefore also adding some positive  aspects pertaining to matter of health and exercise.  Currently dead weight take off  ( Bike and driver at 280 Kg combined)  and general driving speed  using only peddles of up to 12 KPH is easily achieved with little effort . While potential copycats will attempt to emulate  our concept , the ZBike will  outclass and outlive  cheaper models which will appear  once we formally reveal the prototype.

No investment capital is currently being sought with the release of information pertaining to the development of the ZEHEDBIKE. FTN Exporting CEO Davide Giovanni Papa is personally developing an investment project the details of which will be published in  “International Projects and the Successful Intermediary” (IPSI)  in 2026. ISPI is made  to compliment our current mainstream doctrine (ITSI). ITSI and ISPI  together  will provide the insight on how an  informed PCT  can also create an low capital  investment project within 5 years or less.  As usual, FTNX only release a publication after its basis has been vigorously tested first.Information offered herein is done so as current at the time of disclosure without revealing key aspects or disguising actual components that will officially be used, as a matter of secrecy in protecting aspects of such key components. Over time the information offered ‘today’ may change to deliver the final concept by 2026.The operational aspects offered are correctly asserted.
