Greetings from the Antipodes (well - sunny New Zealand anyway)
I'm not really a rider yet but after looking at some of the cool retro rides around I think I soon will be. The main reason I have joined this site in my quest for information in the restoration of an old school 20" Healing Loline (very similar to a Raleigh Twenty). My eldest son has Cerebral Palsy and, while he can't walk, loves to ride his trike - he has come to the stage where he really needs a chain drive trike.
My wife and I have been looking for ages and have found that there is a) a limited selection available in NZ and b) what is here is very expensive. The solution was to purchase an old 20" bicycle (locally) and a trike conversion kit (from eBay) and start the process of creating a rad ride - the bicycle I obtained was an old Healing Loline that had been "chopperised" (you know the style - 16" wheel on front, ape hangers, banana seat, etc) and I am currently in the process of stripping the bike down to get it painted, etc.
I have a raft of questions that I want to get answers for (what brakes to use? drum or rim?, etc) and am happy to be pointed to the correct forum for posting purposes.

Welcome to BF and best of luck with your trike conversion. Hope it works out perfectly!
