Three Wheel-Recumbent Conversion

While visting the local discount store I ran across a old three wheeler and remember seeing somewhere plans to make a recumbent. Does anyone know of such plans or have a design ideas to make a decent trike or lowrider. The bike it's self is pretty heavy, took two of us to put into the back of the truck. I am not sure if I want to make a tadpole or delta or lowrider. Any ideas or suggestions would be great. Also would it be possible to use the front section( as it can be removed with two bolts ) as a lowrider, and somehow attach a rear end to it. I am look for some way to make a recumbent out of it.

I have some plans for a three wheel recumbent. A good website to go to is https://www.ihpva.org/com/PracticalIn...ons/index.html . If it takes two people to lift it then its probably to heavy. I would only use the front steering section because thats the most fiddley part to make. build the rest of the frame and just take parts off the old one. Personally id go for the tadpole design because i use them the most and they're pretty stable.

Hope that helps
