    Well, I finally finished the little delta for our vertically-challenged friend! Now i can concentrate on mk2 of my own trike. We've gone from being able to ride only a couple of km,(I've had my spine broken in 2 places, my wife had a full hip replacement last year) to now being able to do a...

    I reckon that's part of the challenge! Sometimes I need more brain than I was given though... I'll keep on welding, cutting and painting and see what we get as an outcome.😄

    This is called "spot the rookie mistake"! I'm looking at making an Aurora, but with 26" rears. Will roughly follow the design, but still using tubing for the axle housing. Had the ideas on paper, but the actual rear was never gonna work, as the 1st pic shows. In Oz, the only gearset readily...

    Ahhhh! Can't help myself! This latest trike is for an old friend, all 5'2" of her! Another hybrid, but all inspired by the plans I've bought from Brad. I'm using 24" rear wheels just to keep it in perspective. Next will be another 2 trikes for my wife n myself. These will implement all the...

    And finally, the morphed deltawolf, made with chs instead of shs. One of the reasons I went this track is wanting to use tubing for the axle housing. 6004 bearings will press-fit nicely into it. (I'm using 20mm 4150 axle rod, hence the bearing size.)

    Ok, another of the final result. As you may have noticed, I took some (heaps even) artistic licence, especially with the trike!

    Brad! What have you done mate?! I started looking at building a trike earlier this year to help my wife's rehab after a hip replacement... Now, after looking at and buying your (Brad's) plans, I'm on my 3rd build! Started with the Meridian, then started a Deltawolf using round tubing instead of...
