TIMBERWOLF CARGO DELTA TRIKE PLAN
A Delta Trike has two wheels in the back, with the front wheel placed ahead of the cranks. This design is considered easy to build, and lends itself well to all type of modifications. This trike also includes a cargo rack that is placed on the suspended side of the frame so that you can transport breakable goods safely.
The TimberWolf is the perfect mix of versatility and comfort, ready to move your groceries, take you to work, or just head out for a relaxing ride down some country road. The rear suspension will make your ride smooth and comfortable over any terain.
The rear suspension system is made using recycled mountain bike components, so there is nothing expensive or hard to find required. Every single step of the build is detailed with many photos, so you don't need any building experience.
Welding the square tube frame is quite easy, only requiring the most basic welding rig and skillset. During the build you have plenty of oportunuty to modify the design to suit your own style and needs as well. Anything can be modified for a unique build.
The chain is routed under the seat using standard hardware store pulleys, and all of the transmission parts are just standard bicycle components. Many of the required parts can be salvaged from a single mountain bike, with the other parts available at a bike shop.
Add a cooler to carry your groceries, or perhaps you want to move a lot more, so a wood flat deck may be better. You are free to add whatever type of cargo carrying system you need, and there is plenty of room to make modifications to the rear of the frame.
Components like the head tube and suspension spring are just salvaged from an old mountain bike. You can also purchase all of your parts from any bicycle shop if you want all new parts, as they are fairly inexpensive and common.
The TimberWolf DIY Cargo Trike is built to last a lifetime, and is ready for any type of riding. Enjoy the scenic view in a relaxing recumbent seat, or move your stuff on clean human power, getting a workout while your save a fortune on gas!
