    picked up this early 90s Worksman trike...got it for $75...need a project to keep me busy during some of the winter...this thing is pretty crusty...was being used on a farm..the hubs and chain are covered in farm gunk... the frame looks 3BE8AB93-9409-4ADB-8D85-07543D161790.jpeg 8C50ADB8-4AC2-4123-98FC-54B9163A8053.jpeg C0843697-A834-4171-943D-522F3FF84857.jpeg EED3A246-D684-415A-83B3-0072BD5EA993.jpeg E3013E18-68F7-4BF1-B7C9-805B20EB7F93.jpeg solid...just a little surface rust...it should clean up nice...probably will repaint it...it’s got an old Shimano 3CC hub on it...not sure if it still works...think so tho...the gear cable is frayed so I need to fix it cause there are no parts available for this hub...one of the back wheel axles has a slight bend in it..but I think it can be bent back...needs a front brake as well..

    Looks like a solid trike!
    I'm sure it will be really nice when done!
