    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.

    yeah - the wheels are from three of those cheap Stingray Replicas.

    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?
