Been around IP for decades but here's a service I like that's designed for protection of designs like these two above. The website itself was put together in 2005 by a pair of web authors who were tiring of pitching work to clients that subsequently used the material by using other agencies to undercut the quote.
As we move into a new year however I have to leverage the versatility of the design by focusing on an upright model for a standing operator, or else a sedan including a seat.
Probably the best way to do this is to canvas the opinion of prospective purchasers, on condition they back that opinion with a cash deposit to confirm the preference.
Nothing focuses the mind like having to put your money where your mouth is...
