Many spokes

G'Day Sogood, Yep, there sure is. The reason is, that to get 14mm axles these are HD BMX wheels ready made. Good Luck

I have a feeling there is going to be a lot of hair pulling before this one is done :shock:

I'm looking forward to seeing th take shape. Lean steer trikes fascinate me.

Cheers,

Now don’t you go telling him some one legged Nome needs a Tilt Trike.
Mate this is me telling him [for I can’t remember how long]
“It’s time for you to build one for yourself”
Now he’s started [after a lot of talking]
So don’t whatever you do go putting any side ideas into his head
:wink:

Howdy All, Today, Ilena took her first roll on three wheels. Tilt steering seems to work OK, haven't sat down and tried it yet [ lots more work to do ] Photo soon. :wink: Good Luck

Ileana

Postby Recycler » Sat Mar 29, 2008 7:38 pm

Howdy All, Well we sat in Ileana today, what do you know, cranks not far enough away from axle! also bottom bracke to low! Out with cutting disc, Front forks and BB gone, scrap metal!! Also change main frame to better fit grab handles. Now up to Mk. 3 Snaps soon :oops: Wife home from Overseas holidays on 2nd April, Just in time for Leigh and I to head off on our ride ( Bents of course )

Difficult Birth

Postby Recycler » Sun Apr 20, 2008 12:40 pm

Howdy All ! More issues front end flex, out with disc grinder. " Grinding / Cutting noise", front end gone again. Refer to snap of Mk.4 . Split a set of BMX forks, much stronger now. I'm thinking of how to fit BB and cranks! Will be using Shimano Nexus 8 with roller brake on the FWD. Leigh and I had a good ride out west, Narrabri to Bourke via Lightning Ridge. Bent heaven!!!

Blue Front Forks

Postby Recycler » Sun Apr 27, 2008 4:06 pm

Howdy all, AS you may notice, gone are the green forks and on with the blue! In these snaps you can see how the seat, wheel and forks move as one. Pivoting on a old headstem at the lower point and a rod end at the upper point. This seems a never ending story. :?
