Build your own Trike? Danish style with Alu frame.

https://www.gizmag.com/n55-xyz-spacef...ehicles/24163/
Danish design studio N55, in collaboration with German designer Till Wolfer, has created a series of open-source human-powered vehicle designs that can be built at home using basic tools and materials.

Dubbed XYZ Spaceframe Vehicles, the models incorporate weather-resistant and lightweight frames that are made using standard aluminum tubes.

Those tubes are assembled together using simple stainless steel bolts, washers and nuts.

“Unlike the singular load-bearing tube seen in traditional bike structures, the main structure is an orthogonal spaceframe of standard aluminum tubes,” says N55.
Seems interesting for us that don't weld things together.
The only reason I don't have one is lack of space.
I live in very small apartment with no garage.
So I need small folders instead and have maybe 5 of these

That is cool! I was actually thinking of buying a trike but may I will try and build it. Best of all the plans are FREE! Here's a link to the plans and details: https://www.n55.dk/manuals/spaceframe...evehicles.html
