front wheel drive trike for my special needs 13 year old
I'm looking to create a new trike for my son. He is invited to do a rails to trails ride with the boy scout next spring and I want to get a jump on setting him up for it. He has used a Worksman adult sized trike for street and park riding but I dont think it will handle the rails to trail deal. Has anyone else created anything like this?
1) To make a front wheel drive trike that uses a mountain bike or an OCC Stingray rear end for the driving/steering.
2) Keep it under 50 pounds net weight
3) Be off road compatible
4) Be able to fold the rear end to make it more compact for storage/transport
