Some bikes just don't get it . Well Blu-Gal took one look in the mirror and started shaking her old crooked finger and yelling . I don't know about you boy's and your grudge mentality's .
Come on now , rusty bikes , upside-down handlebars or a seat with looong springs ? I tried to explain how we look at it as a
new seat.jpg
form of art but she just don't get it . So dug out another Person's seat that I picked up here from another member . Added stiffer springs and cups . Used 20 year old SEM paint I had left over and painted the rest in flat metallic . Now just waiting for the next change order ?

When I tried using the Worksman spokes with hollow hubs for the trike the spokes are to long . Can any one
recommend a easy spoke calculator that might work for this
application ?
This one should work. https://bikeschool.com/index.php/resources/spoke-calculator No over lock nut dimension that would make it confusing with a trike hub. Just measure from flange to flange and divide by 2 to get your hub center to flange center measurement. You can click on the little question mark boxes to get explanations of the different values they're asking for.

Love this build!

The NOS Worksman front loader wheels came inView attachment 98289 View attachment 98290 and I like the unique drop centers . When I tried using the Worksman spokes with hollow hubs for the trike the spokes are to long . Can any one

There's no such thing as free truss rods . I recvd. this J C Higgins truss rod set up for next to nothing , thinking it would look good with the handlebars I'm using . The bike omen's showed up and the Elgin fork did not have enough threads to accommodate the brackets . After 3 hours of mixing and matching parts , I think I'm going to settle on this set up ?

Hang in there and be safe above all else!
Great job on upsizing your rental income. I have 10 units, so I can relate to your work.
In the aftermath of Dorian, if you have time, do your best to at least piece together what you can of this cool build to cross the line.
Best wishes on making it through Dorian safely. We'll be tracking it up here in Savannah.
