    Well the Roch is done! First ride was to the market! This is gonna be a blast to ride around town. Of course, Jats is pushing for me to motorize. This was a real test of my limited skills but I am pleased.

    Thanks guys! I have to thank Troy for allowing me to design the build without to many "Frowns of Doubt". ;) He likes "plastic pink Flamingos" and I like "Zen rock gardens". This was a lot of fun. I am looking for a Summer Build to up the ante of my skill level! Just a little!

    I appreciated your support immensely! Thanks again! :praise:

    Way to go Momma Jats! That is a classy ride. That frame just looks so natural as a trike. Well done!

    I bet it rolls nice with the skinny tires.

    Really liked watching your build. Made my top 5 because of functionality, vision, and direction. My mom would ride this bike...:cool2:

    Well thank you very much SilverkingPC. As a Mom, I am very pleased. Maybe you should build your mom a trike. ;)

    Interesting you say that. At 88, she needs a ratted step-through 24" or a trike because she can't handle regular bikes any more, and misses riding.... Hmmmmmm......

    There you go ...you can design the platform of the step through frame low enough to make it easy. And I love my "comfy seat" too!

    Yep. All the above! Here is a 40's 24" Hawthorne I have from our family farm that's been hanging around too long. I may 3-spd it with new wheels.
