    How can I mod a vintage Raleigh hard tail rearend to connect to a suspension pivot?

    I was thinking of hacking up a vintage Raleigh 3 speed to connect to a suspension pivot on my tank trike. If I cut off the top tube and cut the down tube about 6 inches in front of the Bottom Bracket I could split, spread and drill the stub to fix around the pivot point. I might connect it via the existing pivot point bracket if need be but I don't own a welder and was hoping to manage this without hiring help. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    Pictures please. No way around it, this is a welding job. Why are you using a Raleigh three speed?

    I think that with the low ground clearance on this beast i want to go with a internally geared wheel and I have the Raleigh in the parts heap. I also want to replace the rear end with something that will take a larger wheel.

    The speed is break neck, faster than a high speed dual cassette tape deck.

    No, got one of those trying to upgrade it or correct some problems created by the previous owner.
