    Well this baby right here took a few test spins through the city of Nuremberg/Germany - so I thought it's time to show it:

    The idea (just some parts thrown together and barely rollable):

    Because it's hard to find some good trike axles - we managed to find a donor trike

    Many hours later and with the help of most of the SouthSideRollers-Custombike-Club peps - this is what it looks like right now:

    Thanks to the SouthSideRollers-Custombike-Club, especially to:
    Ecki a.k.a Ecki.the.Mechanic - for lacing the wheels in "3-leading-3-trailing"
    Stefan a.k.a. Outrage - for welding and many usefull tips
    Dennis a.k.a. Dns da Mnc - for the donor trike
    Dirk a.ka. Drk - for the help
    Vinz a.k.a. Vinz - for tips, help and a lot of weird talk
    all SouthSideRollers for the Support.

    Future plans

    After the EisbeinKruise in Hannover/Germany in two weeks the trike will be thrown apart and painted/powdercoated/dipped.
    Stay tuned.

    Yeah, I gotta agree w/ Greenbean on this one. I just picked up a tandem and I'm gonna put a trike rear on it, but there is no way to compete w/ that monster trike. I really like it !!! My only hope is that since I'm a slow builder everyone will have forgotten about this one by the time mine is finished, (joking) :shock: :? 8)

    Calm down guys. This was just a little project while looking at some parts on the garage floor. I do this stuff just for fun - not for competition. So go ahead - take my creation for some inspiration and build your trikes. Just show us what you got! :cool:

    Cheers from over the pond.

    Thanks again.

    That is some serious tricycle action you got going on there, how many lanes does it take up? LOL . It does look very comfortable, how is the gearing?
