    E7A39BE5-3B46-4339-9D6F-76F5D6F152A8.jpeg Took a while, but I worked out that this 20” trike was eligible for the WBO. So with a stuttered start...

    Purchased a while back with the intention of getting it running and potentially using it as a shopping cart. Battery was no good and the front tyre was bald, but otherwise working and in good condition. Not much to do with it, but a bit of a build anyway.

    Pic is as purchased. It was owned by a disabled bloke who rode it with electric assist, but has improved and bought a pedal only trike when the battery carked it.

    Plan is: Replace the grips, convert back to two brake levers, build a new basket, replace the battery and perhaps a dusting of paint.

    Also contemplating whitewalls.
