The Aurora Delta Racing Trike
Typically, high performance trikes have been of the tadpole type (two wheels in the front), but the Aurora shatters this stereotype with its ultra low seating position and amazing corning abilities. With our easy-to-follow DIY delta trike plans, you can build your own racing delta trike using typical bicycle components and steel tubing, and you can do so at a fraction of the cost of an equivalent factory produced trike.
Under seat steering offers complete control over the handling at any speed and places your arms in a comfortable and relaxed position. For rugged terrain, the Aurora is equipped with rear suspension and a low climbing gear range that will smooth out the ride and allow you to climb hills with ease. All of the steering parts used on our DIY racing trike are standard bicycle components.
The Aurora Racing Delta Trike is a low and laid back recumbent trike will perform equally well on both the road and the trail. The low center of gravity allows the Aurora to race into corners at full speed, hugging the road like a performance race car while you keep on pedaling. You can also cheat the wind thanks to the aerodynamic recumbent seating position.
Your home built delta trike will look and perform as good as a factory produced trike, and you get the added bonus of bragging rights, “I built it myself!” Our delta trike plans take you through the entire build process, step-by-step, so even if you have never taken a bicycle apart or welded before, you will be able to follow along and build your own DIY recumbent trike.
There is ample space behind the seat for a cargo box or even a battery pack so that you can install an electric hub motor and rocket up hills with ease. For all-weather commuting, you could even add a fairing or a full body to the Aurora Racing Trike, creating a unique DIY velomobile or a cool streamlined racing machine. There is plenty of room in our trike plan for you to add your own modifications.
The Aurora Trike transmission is fairly simple, using mostly standard bicycle components and a pair of machined parts that adapt the bicycle parts to the rear axle. Even the suspension parts can be salvaged from an ordinary mountain bike, so you can build this amazing DIY trike on a minimal budget.
On the pavement, the Aurora Racing Trike will tear around corners at full speed, gripping the road for maximum agility. Off road, the rear suspension will handle bumps with ease and offer a purely enjoyable ride. Hill climbing is no problem at all for the Aurora due to the low gear range and stability of three wheels. Dual rear disc brakes and an optional front brake will ensure adequate stopping power, even when carrying cargo or under motor power.
Do you want to get an amazing workout and enjoy the scenery along the way from a comfortable and laid back position? You can on your own home built delta racing trike! You will only need the most basic tools such as a welder and hand held grinder, and you will save a bundle by building your own DIY delta trike. Builders wanted - no experience required.
