That's a great build!

The last pic looks like a stallion rearing up.

Somehow I lost track of this thread and you finished the bike while I wasn’t looking. This is certainly a one-of-a-kind machine.

The yellow paint really makes it stand out. Good choice.

I see that you put the wheelie bars on it but there’s no wheels?

Also I would like to hear a ride report about this trike.

Hello fellow bike fans,
We have been out at a campout in the woods up a mountian.
Nice place, no bikes there.

Thank you all for your kind comments.
All of the builds in RRBO 17 are unique.

I see that you put the wheelie bars on it but there’s no wheels?
I did cover that in the above posts.
No real need for "whillie" bars that roll, no more whillies with the longer wheelbase.
Those bars that do stick out are used to "park" the trike, standing up.
There is also one bar on the back of the rear seat post to get the ballence point right.

While the trikes are fun to ride, there are "issues" that show up.
One is slower speed and clearence problems on narrow single track trailes.

Another is , "Where will it go when not riding it? "
They do take up a lot of space.

Parking them standing up really helps that, and now with 4 trikes to park a way to "stand "
them up is a good thing.
Three standing will fit into the space of one down flat.

Having a small "fleet" of different bikes around takes care of the "slows", just hop on another bike.
