Keep a diary of your latest build here.
Well I started this project before I knew about this forum so I dont have before pics, but it was blue with a white basket and in rough shape. It is a Worksman tricycle all origanal parts except I put new tires on it.
I recently scored an old spaceliner girls bike and decided the springer might look good on the trike. what do you guys think??
Never thought to put rear baskets on the front like that, looks good

Patina + Rat = Me
Found some sweet parts I may use:
I found a basket I may use instead of the red one its an old school basket really heavy duty that reads Beatrice Foods 59:
I also picked up this wolf head at the Goodwill it was hollow and I used a bolt and JB Weld to give me a mounting point. The wife said it's tacky, I told her so am I. Card inserted for scale purpose, fell free to rack up my bill.
What do you guys think?
I got a couple more steps done on the trike:
1. Got the wolf head installed, bolted an old reflector flange.
2. Decided I wanted to ride with my buddy Arthas, so me and my lady upholstered the back basket.
I like everything about this bike so far. Nice touches and the dog is the bomb. Were looking at getting a Chug (chihaua/pug) right now. Very excited to get a riding buddy.
right on inshane...loving the look. my worksman trike ended up more lowrider/rat rodish. i'm still looking for a rear basket.
I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength...
I spent some time in the shop the last two days and got my trike a little closer to what I want:
First I fabricated some brackets and swaped the chainguard.
Second I made a bumper/handle thingy:
Third I welded some brackets on to hold my flag:
Next I installed a speed-o and put the front basket back on:
Here is how it sat mid-ride tonight!!
This is my folder, This thing was so trashed that the pedals hit the ground more than a inch. Cut and rewelded the frame back, New black paint, newer used tires, BMX bars, two baskets and have it on C/L now.
Some people call me Macgyver
Nice trike! I am glad my trike isn't a folder, I am a pretty big guy!
Here is the flag I am gonna go with, hope to have it done in a day or two:
