I want to see what you've done to your trike. Mine currently has a wine crate as a rear basket but I'm looking for ideas.

Here's my girlfriend's Kent Meridian. Painted in Kustom Shop Cronic green pearl with painted daisies all over it. She loves it.

aren't the fenders a PITA? I ended up removing mine because they were constantly needing to be adjusted.

Factory fenders. She likes them. Going to get some different braces for them soon

thinking about putting mine back on to mount brake/turn lights into the reflector housing (mine has reflectors on the fenders) but not sure if I want to deal with them again, lol.

This is my new(ish) recumbent tilting delta trike.
Front wheel drive, "lunch" box, and looks like magic when I'm turning.
I named it "One Man's Trash..." because it's build almost exclusively out of things I salvaged from a recycling dumpster (everything except for some rivets and the brake cable and pads)

This is my 4 year olds new trike. He complained that no one looked at his bike when he rode with me so I had to build him something cool. So here it is...lol

First frame, a little big for him with the 20" front wheel...


So we swithced to a 16" frame and went from there.

Smoooth Three

The tires are Hoggy G’s 24x3.5 rears and a 20x3.5 front w/drum brake and a 7-speed Shimano Nexus w/coaster brake rear driving a 24 tooth cog and 52/42 roadie crank.

She is a "true chopper" incorporating the frames of a Worksman trike, a Fuji woman’s road bike and a Schwinn woman’s touring bike. I chopped the frames and arraigned them, then I sent the frame off to the local auto body shop and had them weld it together – the cost for welding was two large pizzas, one Carnivore (meat) Special and one pepperoni - those guys don’t do Vegetarian!
