    Duncan:Much thx man-the wheels are just a light teal that I made...similar to Seafoam w a bit less green.
    Outlaw: pics below of the rear drive- and yeah I'm trying to make the braces look like fender mounts...it's not bad looking, plus it'll give me something' else to paint scallops on 8)
    Aros: appresh!

    Thx guys! You win-the light stays, but I had to switch the f sprocket and carrier back to the rh side- I don't like it as much aesthetically, but functions way better. I'm in the process of getting the brakes going and the fenders painted now...
    Suicide brake: ON!!! 8)

    so with the back bar on pushin out do ya have enough force so the wheel bolts don't bend. liken the fenders an the red on the lite was a great choice. am liken this even more. great job.

    Yeah man, it seems to be holding well. I braced it across the top and front-so far so good. I actually like it better w the fenders now lol. I'm gonna take it for a spin tonight, so hopefully everything is good to go. [​IMG]

    Re: 3wheelsFOrealz...Done! (almost)

    Many thanks to all for the props! I wish I could say it was a stroke of genius that made this thing come togetherlike it has, but in reality it was just a stroke of luck lol. Outlaw- i had put a pin thru the axel to keep the sprocket from spinning off (since it was on the lh side) which weakened it and cased it to break. I tried various other ways before the pin with no luck.
    Just got the seat back today...Super stoked about it

    Re: 3wheelsFOrealz...Done! and she's a goner

    Got everything buttoned up this weekend and was able to cruise it in our town's Christmas parade yesterday. This thing is a blast to ride-I hate to see it go, but the new owner is picking it up on Wed. I guess it's time to start a new one 8)

    Thx man! This def won't be the last one...I'm kinda hooked on em now. The patina is all done with a couple of layers of base, some sandpaper and an airbrush, then flat clear.
