    I just picked up an old home built tike today. Have to figure out how to put rear wheels on it though. Has a 1 inch solid axle. May swap to something smaller though. Good motivation here!

    Just figured out today after uncovering what was left of a head tube badge that mine is a Mohawk Industrial Tricycle. Going to be my truck basically. Will get pics soon.

    I see alot of these are built using the typical conversion kits that bolt on to the rear. I've tried asking some ebay sellers about the "hollow hub" wheels that are used, but I only get vague answers.. Is it just a freewheel? Or like a front wheel with the axle removed? I wanna use one of these kits, but I can't find wheels with wide rims and "hollow hubs"...

    You probably won't find hollow hubs on wide rims, but if you're not going to wide you could lace your own.

    I have seen people use front wheels with a custom axle, never tried it myself. But I imagine it would work like a wheelchair wheel.

    Yeah, I gotta learn to lace sooner or later anyway I guess. Finally found a place that sells the hubs aswell (bicycledesigner.com for anyone wondering). Are there any other methods used on trike wheels, besides the hollow hubs I mean?

    This was a project for a friend's son. He has a pituitary gland issue and is very slow in reaching his average age height goals, he was too short to ride a 20" and just a little to tall for a 16". So a trike was the answer, and because the kid is rad....we have it a little style. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
