heya crash do you know if jerald is doing anymore 26 inch slicks i have a bike that they would look good on in fact did they ever make a 26 inch slick im not sure but the street slicks i have are no good the minute i hit loose dirt i feel like i am ice skating with bowling shoes ( figuratively speaking lol)Jerald Slick does a 24". It's 2.125, but FAT
i did it few years ago ,its awesome , always wanted to start a new sport (real drift trike) i have the v2 planned up with upgrated geometry , might actually be my next buildThe trikes in this build-off have got me to thinking, what if you put drift trike wheels on the back? Some fancy gearing would be needed to get the wheel speed up, but that might be worth it to do burn outs and doughnuts!
iam pretty sure that if they look right and sell for reasonably cheap lots of people would buy them , i know basic machined mold for mini skis are in the 5grands , i can imagine injection mold costing alot more , but what do i know.. after all if its slick and round , should not be that hard to machine , just takes huge round chunks of metalAnyone have an idea what the run numbers were with the 346 tires volume wise? Anyone know a way to find out...
Wonder if tooling up for oversized oldschool wall styled slick is reasonable vs market.
making the mold in house is a great idea if possible ,but making a good rubber compound and having a injection moulding machine , i would leave it to a well established companie .. idk about numbers sryThe tooling is the easy part for me it's considering the production run cost to get jobbed. I was asking because those were not made inhouse was wondering what numbers would take to approach the project realistically. I'm sure for 2.75+up vintage looking slicks would so well juat clueless as what a run would cost.
