    Popshot , certainly another way of doing it , we all tend to do what we think we can make work ? So no riding whilst we have 4" snow and -4c ! Got a chance to perform a BBectomy , seems to have gone well. Left a short stub with remains of seat tube/BB mount Gives me somewhere to mount a...

    My life with Python trikes Mk1 , Mk1.5 , Mk2 ?

    So been @ the metal glue gun again ! there are a lot of welds , inevitably there are some spots of porosity however not enough to compromise it's strength. As can [ almost ] be seen here the upturn is in the parallel portion just before the joint for the sweep in to the BB. Yes I could...

    My life with Python trikes Mk1 , Mk1.5 , Mk2 ?

    But starting off you have no idea how much to cut out ? and if both sides of each leg are not cut the same the leg bends ? and if the same is not cut out of each side the whole shooting match bends ? true but controllable ? I really wanted to cut 3 sided inserts from some scrap frame material...

    Another FWD Delta trike.

    I had lot's of trouble with the plates bending and gripping the keel , even @ 3mm. The answer was to weld on one plate and give the other plate 2 horizontal bolts one through the upper welded on plate and one below the keel. That way it was also easy to wrap some heavy duty polythylene around...

    My life with Python trikes Mk1 , Mk1.5 , Mk2 ?

    Ok got somewhere I think... Took some measurements from frame before disassembly , the 25.75" was from the pivot end of the straight tube to BB centre , the BB was also 5" high from the underside of the straight tube. Now the same point is only 24.25" from the BB , giving me the needed 28"...

    My life with Python trikes Mk1 , Mk1.5 , Mk2 ?

    I suppose the same reason I gave the first time I said I was going to do it like this ? Your way requires 4 accurate cuts and no room for error if you take out to much it is harder to go back , if you take out to little you need another 4 accurate cuts etc etc Doing it this way you just bend it...

    it would seem to be the easiest option [ however I am not know for doing easy :giggle: ] I would rather get rid of the mess of having to have the second chain ring to get the chain management to work ? See below. Paul
