Thanks, notice the clutter, always heard that a messy desk is a measure of ones mental quotient.Dig it MF! Your pictures are worth a thousand words!
Yah always like starting these things but I tend to be impatient.Wow......can't wait
Yes I saw the first one in an antique shop and thought I have to have it. I watched the price for over a year. They finally suckered me in with a reduction sale price. Trial and error it is. What looks good on paper doesn’t always transfer to reality.Love the Bradley sheet metal!
The double front wheel steering instantly set my brain into engineering mode. Should pose some real challenges. It will be interesting watching the 'trial and error ' as it unfolds!
Understood, thus the pivot point. Also looking at some go cart steering knuckles. Guess I could change the name to “StraightLiner”. Nothing in the rules says it has to turn. It would be rideable but RatRod says no “Show Bikes”. The goal is make the front end bolt on to the fork.I can share from a friend's experience that a straight axel thru the fork will not work very well. Fine in a straight line but no good on turns. You may need a subassembly and a linkage to turn each wheel separately. That might steer you into class two, unless you can keep that fork stock...

I’m anxious to see what the geometry allows to happen in terms of executing a turn. As mentioned above I’m looking at some steering knuckles as well.I see what you did there.
The drawings show that there are plans for a center pivot on the axel. That's a start, but I'm thinking that the head tube angle is where the problems lie.
I’ve thought about the trike concept, it would be easier. I’ve always to late on picking up a used trike or they’ve been too far away.Man, if I had TWO of those hoods, I'd be shooting for twin trike fairings...maybe the kind that steer with the wheels.
Agreed.^That would be cool on a traditional trike!
Yep two hoods in play here, could happen.
May be fun to watch, maybe not so much in the execution. We’ll see a lot of time.This is gonna be a seriously fun build to follow!!!!
Trial and error ahead, maybe a couple of twists along the way. Might get started on some visual mockups on Saturday. Thanks!
Wow, that’s pretty close to one possibility. Thanks.
Not my rendering but @horsefarmer is on track with his. Thanks.If you come close to your rendering, it's going to look sweet.
Thanks, I did use your previous build pic. What surprised me was all the photos of David Bradley hoods online!
