STREETFIGHTER DIY QUADCYCLE PLAN
Even though a four wheeled human powered vehicle has more parts than a trike, it is still easy enough to build so that anyone with basic tools ans skills can do it. Every single step of this plan is shown in great detail with clear text and many photos.
The entire frame is made of basic hardware store square steel tubing so that cutting and welding will be easy. The transmission components are also standard parts that can be found at the hardware store or auto parts store.
With dual rear disc brakes, your DIY QuadCycle will be able to stop easily, even at the bottom of that massive hill when you reach speeds that exceed the posted city limits! Brakes are independent as well, so you can do some fun drifting and trick riding.
Proper Ackerman steering geometry ensures stability when hitting corners at full speed or when quickly navigating hazards during those rush hour city commutes. The steering components are easily made, and explained in gread detail in this DIY Plan.
Most of the steering components can be salvaged from old bicycles, and there are no machined parts required. The steering is easy to align, and offers very predictable and responsive control, even when pushing downhill at highway speeds.
Our DIY Bike and Trike Plans are laid out in a step by step format that allows for easy modifications and utilization of parts you may already have in your junk pile. Build using scrap bike parts, or purhcase everything new from your local bicycle store.
With a little patience, even a beginner welder can create a cool DIY QuadCycle from scratch, and it can be done on a decent budget. You can easily alter the design to suit your needs, changing it into a completely different looking vehicle.
The StreetFighter DIY QuadCycle is a great project for commuting, racing, exercise, or as a base for creating a full body VeloCar. There is a lot of room to easily modify this plan, and like all of our DIY human powered vehicle plans... no experience is necessary.
