Can't get that Aerosmith song ,out of my head " Dude looks like a
lady " I guess every project worth doing , has got to look tore up before it starts to look good . Needed to get this thing off my bike stand .
Now I need to contemplate , what would be the best way to spread the rear stays about a inch , to fit around the rear axle pumpkin
Need to figure out the 24" wheel's issue also

You just had to do it... "Yeah, Yeah, dude looks like a lady..." :rofl:

Love the way where this is going.

Call me a brutal, barbaric slav, but I use raw muscle power to do it:showingbiceps:

Playing bike's , has been put on the back burner for awhile now . My father in law who has been living with us for awhile now has passed . Just now getting back in the swing of things .
I will be using these peaked fenders because I will gain a inch in width for bigger tires and they will fit the existing fender braces pretty good . Need to trim the rear fender to match the front then take care of some holes and dents .

I'm sure I will not be breaking any speed records on 100 lb trike.
I will know more when I tear into the rear axle ? Maybe I can use
the Fred Flintstones:eek: method and use the heel's of my feet ?
Had a trike last month for service. It had a 3 speed Nexus, and still it was not a super-sports bike, but actually the front V-Brake on it was kinda useless, cause of the big weight of this whole setup. The one that I worked on weight about 30kg (about 60 pounds), and the rear coaster brake, even tought it operated on only one wheel, was far better than the front V-Brake, even when I shortened the line so much, that the wheel barely spin between the pads.

I looked every where on the rear axle and the fenders and supports . I just don't see any signs of a existing rear break .
Any ideas how I might be able to add one ? The original trike was made by Skyway and I don't think they included one . Not all Schwinn town and country trikes had them ?
