    I got out to the shop this weekend and was able to work on the bike frame.

    I worked on the back section of the frame, replacing part of it with new angle iron so I can move the axle and it needed to be stronger for other changes that are coming. Just tacked onto place for now.

    I will be out at the shop on Saturday and maybe Sunday this week to finish up my welds and get the rear axle cleaned and mounted. I ordered some 1" bearings so I can make the drop axle assemblys so this thing can sit low to the ground. I will try to do a mockup before the weekend to share with everyone.

    I got the first drop axle assembly done and clamped to the trike to make sure everything lines up, and cut out all the parts for the second one. I also machined the hubs to hold the back wheels. I am planning to work on it some this weekend.
