Reverse Tricycle and mini pursuit

These were "finished" at the 405 boneshakers build day last sunday. I say "finished" because there's no such thing--the trike needs cablework and the pursuitbike needs new handlebars.

without further ado:












Also, please note the solid rubber wheel (stolen from an exercise bicycle) on the pursuit bike--turns it into a SKID MACHINE (or rather a great way to land on your face on the pavement):

Hah! that pursuit mini is awesome!

Might i reccomend that you finish it off with some home made bullhorns?

eg:



Just some old dutch cruiser stule bars flipped upside down and pointed outwards. They steer a tad twitchy, but I've bombed safely on her before (just takes some getting used to) and looks hell of badass.


PS, speaking of badass - your trike IS.
