Big decision
« on: 01.04. 2017 08:25 »
As I'm getting older and more dodgy legged I've decided that I'm going to convert my A10 to a trike.
Anyone got a Reliant back axle that I can have?

Well, I was totally underwhelmed by your responses to my April Fools post. Of course I'm not going to trike my bike!

 weeeell , I had a trike for a while- was a good idea at the time...was based on a trr...trrr..tr....t...r..i....um ph-arted  *eek*....pre unit one 'o them...half T110/half 6T-(T-Bird?)  bought it for $40, slick-shift box, some kinda Morris transaxle with a sprocket grafted onto the crownwheel; Indian girder forks/extended with water pipe *eek* Rode it once up the drive, down the road to the neighbours and around his paddock, but not sure that we made it back to the ranch.....maybe needed to tow it.....The seat became the basis of another three wheeler that I built for my youngstas billycart race- think I threw a pic in a while ago.

 have a pic of it somewhere...
