HI HAPPY PEOPLE! I would love to ride a trike again!

Alrighty then, here goes nothing!
My cycling adventures began with me wearing a watchman's knit hat and I tied a rolled up blanket to my handlebars. I wanted be Charles Bronson from the hit series, Then Came Bronson.
I started working on bicycles at the local Schwinn dealer in 1978 so I could buy my first BMX bicycle and go racing at the local track in Fremont, California.
So I've raced BMX, Downhill MTB and Road. I last competing as a Cat-3 road rider in the USCF in the late 1990's while living in Marin, California.
I began collecting bikes in the late eighties and have around forty examples in my current collection. The earliest is a 1937 Elgin and the latest is a 2010 Cannondale Super Six.
So the impetus for me joining this forum is because I would love to find a Ken Rogers Racing Tricycle Conversion or something similar. I rode a Bob Jackson trike in 1979 and long to ride a trike again. I would love to convert one of my road bikes into a 3-wheeler!
I currently enjoy managing a nice little bike shop here in the high dessert of Central Oregon where I love to wrench and turn people on to cycling.

Welcome to Bike Forums.

Went to a trike after crashing on my head at 16 mph.

Never wanting that again.
