I could def see you cruizin' the Western Canal on that baby! In fact, I'm looking forward to it!Hmmm thinking about a change of frame and forks. kind of like to keep my ratty old Schwinn ratty I attached the frame and fork from another project of mine that my neighbor nick named 8 mile because of its length its been collecting dust for some time now. need to add handle bars and a seat and see if it is even rideable.View attachment 34332
There are no bearings cause they are fixed to a live axle. Those are the bearing blocks connecting it to the trike housing.Yep, I like the sealed bearing idea...
I was thinking as mutch... maybe redoing the mounts more dramatic like a 70s springer arm. Push the wheel out to get it up and over the trail more. Would also solve the bb getting dropped, could actually raise it at the same time.Flipping them would be better, but would put your bottom bracket lower as well.
Certainly worth trying, would look better too in my opinion.

Extra bonus.. even more radical wheelbase
YES!Like go up 2 inches on fork and out 3 and i think u can achive reasonable trail..
Plus look tough as nails.
Yep the bb is miles closer to the rear so moving the axle there would make the bb move more.. id think the trike kit could just be arched back to give it the rise for peddle clearance.mounting the rear axel under the frame to make the pedals clear could work ..and yes flipping the fork
Man that's some nice exhaust.Haven't had much time to work on the trike my daughter just moved back home taking away some of my bike space and been very busy getting peoples bikes including my families built and ready for Tour De Fat Tempe next weekend .To answer the questions about the ride height can't flip the fork makes it to low to ride I am going to weld some new dropouts on the forks and I'm moving the bottom bracket forward and up. I want to keep it as low as I can. Most definitely going with some 24x3.0 tires in back if I don't find some 36 spoke hubs. just got the exhaust stacks today and ordered some red nipples to replace the green ones.
