    Just wondering if anyone had pictures of old three wheel bikes trikes or anyone building one. Thanks for any pictures or info.

    Ive got a bike I want to convert but it seems no one here has a trike conversion kit for a 26 inch bike. Like I mentioned in my thread I know I can get one new for around 200 but I like to hold out for a bargain.

    80s huffy, I had a bunch of random parts laying around and started putting them on, mountain bike suspension fork and front wheel, drop bars and front brake. I let some kids borrow it at a party and they were having fun doing power slides in the gravel until the wheel went taco. I'm going to build it back, hopefully with 26" wheels but I have n't found out if the clearance is there. I spent hours getting the frame aligned so it didn't rub the 24s. Bought it off a guy who needed some money, it will be a good tour de fat ride next year.

    the 24 isn't really the kit style, plus like i said, i've stretched it already so you probaly wouldn't want it anyway.


    man i hate how phtobucket works now, it was easier to find this from an old thread than to search through my old account pics.

    in any event, i want to keep it. it was my first try at linked steering and it didn't work well. i keep saying i'm going to get a big set of apehangers and take all the linkage off, but i never get it back to a front burner to fool with it.

    Nah man, I just wanted the rear, not the whole bike. That rear is just like a kit, it should bolt on to just about any 24/26 inch bike frame. Tell you the truth Id rather have jdswitters trike type kit, I could remove the fender braces and lace a set of 26 inch wheels to the existing hubs.

    This trike that I got has 26 inch tire in front 24s in the rear and the wheels are heavy duty think wheels and spokes. I need to move the engine back to close to the pedals do a little work to the engine get it running better I don't really care that much if the engine don't work really just wanted the trike.

    Sancycles, that looks like a fun trike. Is that a camera on the front? We have been thinking about getting one and wondered about image stability. Thank you for posting the pics! tom

Other than the actual frame, chain guard, and perhaps the rear axle , I am not sure there is much that is salvageable from this.

    I bought a Mohawk Industrial trike frame a few days ago. It is HEAVY but that should mean it should be able to handle a load and pull the trailer I will be starting on soon. Got it for $40 on good old craigslist, had been looking for an industrial trike for a while. I am working towards living car light and needed a "truck".
