    I unfortunately ran out of time for some of the other upgrades I wanted so the trike is rolling as is! All good, I’ll just have to post update pics later. Nothing fancy here, just a painted trike with some add ons. Still though, I fee it’s a huge upgrade over its original look.

    Stull waiting on a taillight that my brother is making for me, as well as some ram horn apes. If they don’t come in by tomorrow than this is what I will be submitting in the finished build off thread.

    My correct pin came in, I re-greased everything and assembled it back together. Overall the build wasn’t fancy. Just simply added a coon tail, hood ornament and upgraded all the chincy hardware. Used grade 5 bolts on everything and capped all bolts off with acorn nuts. I also added a safety flag...

    I was originally going to go all out on the paint job, some sort of heavy metal flake with several amounts of clear. I mulled the idea around for a few weeks before remembering that my almost 4 year old would be thrashing this thing around. I decided to go with matte colors that would cost WAY...

    There weren’t any fancy mods done, no crazy fabrication going on, I just wanted this thing to sit a little meaner than it did fresh out of the box. I started with a cleaning and by taking a scotchbrite pad to everything that would end up getting painted. I also took some 4ot steel wool to all...

    I originally bought this tricycle for my son about a year and a half ago, but once I got it home I realized that it was too big for him. So as a result, it just sat around collecting dust and some rust. My son eventually grew into his trike but the way it looked never sat right with me. The...
