VIGILANTE STEALTH STYLE CHOPPER 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. There is plenty of room behind the seat for you to add your own mods such as a luggage rack or even a power assist motor. The design is extremely robust as well, so you can ride off the pavement or on trails.
We are all about recycle and reuse, so the Delta Trike Plan encourages using the parts you have on hand, as well as salvaging bicycle components from old unused frames when you have them. You can build a beautiful DIY Delta Trike just like this one for a fraction of the cost of a commercial trike, even if you use many new components. There is a great pride that comes from DIY!
The unique style of this frame comes from using large thin walled steel tubing, which is lightweight and easy to weld. All of the frame tubing is turned 45 degrees as well, making it look completely different than any other chopper frame. Feel free to experiment.
There are a lot of unique and tricky parts on this DIY chopper, but all of them are easy to make using basic tools and old bike parts. The extra wide crankset and car wheel hub are all made from common bike parts, hacked with an angle grinder and then welded together.
The forks are also made from common steel tubing, and you are free to make them as long or short as your style demands. You could even use round tubing if you have some available. Customize every part of the bike to make something completely radical.
We are all about recycle and reuse, so the Vigilante Chopper Plan encourages using the parts you have on hand, as well as salvaging bicycle components from old unused frames when you have them. Turn your junk pile into a crazy chopper with massive attitude.
Fenders can be made from bent and welded sheet metal as shown in the plans, or from composite materials like fiberglass. All of the frame angles are easy to modify to suite your own style as well, such as head tube angle, frame height, and fork length.
Custom is all about doing it yourself. No mass produced department store chopper will ever have the kind of attitude that a home built chopper will have - not even close! Spark up your welder and crank out your own radical custom chop using our easy-to-follow DIY chopper plans.
