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

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

    (WBO) A Roch FINISHED!!!!

    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...

    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.

    Hi all... I have been painting and now starting to assemble. Here is the "bridge" piece between the fork and the conversion piece. Everything is starting to come together. I am hoping to be done in about a week!

    So check this out...the main drive gear is also splined and not bolted on. It is held in place by the crank arm. Each side of the crank arms are definitely handed. Just like my carders ...there is a left only and a right only.

    I would like to sponsor a prize. Calling it the Elementary Award for the a simple and elegant build. This will simply be a trophy! I will post a pic of the trophy after I get it mounted for display.

    o_O tools? OH the tools you left out. Gotcha! So I broke the trike down...and I am starting on paint. I ditched the welding idea all together. I designed something a bit more simple to execute and gives more versatility. So here is an interesting find for me. A weird bottom bracket...

    He was very lucky and he just has to rest the eye and use some antibiotic cream. Had to stay home for a couple of days. Thank you for asking Luke!

    Ok finally posting pics. Got interrupted by JATS need to visit the ER where they extracted a piece of metal from his left eye. Safety goggles work great but not if you have slivers of metal on your hands and you decide to wipe your eye before washing those hands. So here is a pic JATS took...

    Ok, so just checking in while on break at work. I will post some pics later today. Got the trike adapter and the frame put together and aligned. I am going to have to have JATS give me a crash course in some welding for extension supports to stabilize the trike to the main frame. Have a...

    (WBO) A Roch FINISHED!!!!

    Thank you! I love trikes and am really excited about getting this one completed. One of my first memories is getting stompin' mad at the guy who rented a room downstairs from my parent. He took out my cool squeaky sound as I rode around in the basement. He was trying to sleep since he worked...

    (WBO) A Roch FINISHED!!!!

    Hi all, I have decided that I will be able to complete my trike, Roch. I changed the front of the bike with a 1970's Tsundae for more stability... more of a workhorse. I really like the chain guard's simplicity and possible palette for some art work. So here is the mock-up for an...
