    Forgive Me

    I'm sorry bout the pic size. my 14 yr. old isn't here to direct me. i'm still learning this "post a pic" stuff. check out my humble beginnings pics.

    no big deal really, I'm interested in seeing that build and was disappointed to see such small pics. My riding buddy, CrazyGringo, and I have talked a lot about building a trike so I like to see each trike build that comes this way.

    Keep the ape hangers - the low bars just look wrong on that rig, and besides, you'll end up with a sore back.

    I agree with SimpleSimon, the ape hangers look good with that trike. Can't wait to see the finished build pics.

    Ape hangers, definitely, and the 26 inchers all around looks very good.

    very nice work on your trike!!

    are you gonna motor it?

    theme? hmmm.... good question

    Undetermined

    yeah, i'm probably gonna motor it. That's why i'm here...lol.
    just not sure with size, 4 stroke or 2, electric or gas, brand name, etc....
    just so much to take in. I'd be using this trike to ride back and forth to work (25 miles 1 way) and buzz around town, "parts hauler".
    suggestions anyone?
