    Started welding the rear...had to clean off my metal table to have a nice level surface. I'm liking the progress so far 20180709_213359.jpg .

    I had to put the trike together a little to figure out a few things. I will get the rear frame finished but then this project will probably get put on hold due to life. I may be moving to a different state for a job so I have a lot of stuff to get done around here. I have 1.5 acres and 12 years of junk to sort out, plus finish a bathroom remodel that is only halfway done...at most. Anyway...

    The trike is almost 8' long if that sort of thing matters to you. The seatpost will be lowered...will find a different seat...the chain is now about a foot too short (which is about how much I took out of it originally...the left pedal is bent...the stem is not all the way down...the forks shown are not the ones I'm using but are the same style, unless something else shows up. I still have to clean up all the welds, cut down the seatpost, triangulate the rear frame, figure out a chain guard, decide what is going on the back (cooler, wagon "bed", wood bed, metal box, ???) 20180710_122912.jpg 20180710_122935.jpg

    Well, I have to throw in the towel on my first bike build. I will spare you the details but life is kicking my butt right now. Maybe next time.

    OUch! Take care, man. And remember, you can always continue this build in the Other Builds thread under the Forums tab.

    Hope you heal well and quickly!

    I may be moving from Florida to Arkansas very soon so it may take a while to get back to bicycles.

    Thanks for the comments all.

    I still can't stand long enough to do anything but I did find a wagon for the bed. It is just sitting there until I can build the frame under it. This trike should be a good cruiser for me once finished. Eventually, it may get gears and electric assist. 20180718_154117.jpg 20180718_154141.jpg
