    It looks like a spaceship. You'll turn heads for sure when you ride that bike.

    Thanks guys!

    Yes, I make bikes, customize them, ride them etc...

    This is how this one started. (I only customized this one) http://www.bikebuyers.com/bronco30-gts-photos.htm

    Micargi makes a great line of bikes for dirt cheap. Great base for letting the creative juices flow.

    Thanks! Do we have an official date? Richard told me all about the last one I missed and I would definitely like to make it if I can. I still have Brutus all crated up...maybe I'd bust him out for the meet if I have the time off.

    O.K. you win. That"s the coolest thing I've seen in a while. I've been thinking about an electricTrike now for a while. Not now, I'd be embarrassed to bring it outa da shop. Where's the show gonna be?

    That is one truly impressive piece of work!

    A couple of questions, if I may - are those 24" rear wheels? Is it powered on the right side only, with the left wheel just a spinner?

    I agree, Pablo. Clearly a solid axle - however, many trikes use a solid axle with one wheel splined to rotate with the axle, the other free to spin on the axle.. My trike conversion kit was set up that way - now it has two half axles with a seperate sprocket on each inner axle end (which are freewheel sprockets) so I can power both rear wheels through a Shimano three-speed rear hub with spoke flange mounted sprockets - which allows it to act like a differential.
