    I should'nt participate to this build off, because I have no place since I build the "Coming Soon" and I have no time either.
    But, well, I can't resist to a scratch build contest.
    So today I started to give a second life to a saddle.

    Can't wait to see what a forkless trike looks like. Is that anything like a three legged dog?
    Good luck.

    If this ends up anything like your other builds, you will have my vote...
    Bring on the build!

    So, the wheels set is done, I use a monocycle hub for the front and two hubs of a wheelchair. For the first time I have to bent some tubes to make the frame.

    This is gonna be great! Are you building a rear steering trike? Your bikes are always cool, this should be no different.
