    Well it took some time but I got around to finish up the 3 wheeler for my nephew. I did post this in the fresh finds, but now it is done I better post the finished product. I posted that my nephew was 14, but I was wrong. He is 16 and never rode a bike. He is a special needs with a few problems that would not let him ride a 2 wheeler. So when finding this I though this would give him a chance to ride. Everyone should ride a bike, no matter what issues we have. Bikes give people the freedom to go out and enjoy the world. So why not him. So with a little time and little money from me now he can enjoy it.

    The only thing I forgot was to bring my camera to take a few pictures when he rode it for the first time. I never saw someone so happy to get a bike and ride for the first time. It was well worth it.

    Enjoy the pictures.....

    A smile on a little kids face when they finally have a bike they can ride is worth more then any amount of money.
