    Huffy Green Machine

    found a Green Machine in the trash this morning, and was wondering if anyone has ever tried to make it into an adult trike. I posted also on Bentrider, I think this would make a decent attempt at a very low end recumbent. Any ideas would be great, at least it will keep me busy during the winter wet season.

    For those who haven't looked it up:



    Fixie, direct drive, RWS. I'm not sure what you'd want to do with it. Come up with a plan and let us shoot it down!

    My shop sells them They have a freewheel hub....that often falls to bits

    Ive tried them bit small

    the man thats over 6 foot oh he has to bend in 2 to get on it

    Geuss you could extend the frame under the seat.

    Also the rear wheels are plastic so would need changing they wear out

    Would look good with alloys from a go cart
