Ok. Here's my dilemma: My grandfather is around 63 years old and seriously overweight. He's having problems getting around and as a result is not happy. My grandmother has been searching frantically for a three wheel bike to support his weight with no luck; the cheapest she can get one here is $1200 Canadian. So, I'm kind of wondering about a custom job. Can anyone even build me a trike frame? Here's what we'd need:
-Steel preferably, weight is not a big issue but strength is essential.
-Should take 29" mountain bike wheels
-Lots of clearance for big tires
-Being able to take a suspension fork is a huge plus
-Disc brake mounts
-Upright positioning, fairly slack, comfortable geometry.
-Needs to support around 300lbs
-And, finally, it should be able to take most stock bike parts without too much hassle.
If there's anyone who can do this, PLEASE get in touch with me via PM or email. This would help a lot
