Right now I will be fixing up a Trike of unknown origins(see previous post) to ride, Problem is Trikes are heavier than bikes which makes them slower. They are also wider, most of them atleast the width of two bikes riding next to each other or three fixed gears. I had a few ideas for it.
- Make it into a lowrider which would pull a old Radio Flyer wagon(now rusting to hell) as a trailor that carried a another lowrider I was making from a Kawasaki BMX bike(no longer own) that cant be ridden.
- Because of its design, a offroad trike.
- Dropping a motor on the back, or cutting the rear off and welding it to my mopeds rear swingarm.
My plan now is like the equivilant of restomoding keeping it simple but upgrading it to a 26' and hopefully being able to add a front disc brake and I was thinking dual rear brakes that I can operate independantly be cause of the LSD, I can brake in a turn without loosing the ability to pedal. Maybe being able to eliminate the coaster brake of the gear hub so I can go in reverse with the use of a BMX brake system(how most use one lever to activate both front and rear brakes) to control both rear brakes. Slapping on some slick road tires with a skinny in the front. I have everything I need accept front fork(need from beach cruiser), wheels, brakes. and it needs a bearing on one axle. I'm all about customizing my stuff.
I'm all for equal rights for bikes and other vehicles, I'm not one-sided when it comes to this stuff. It's all about the focus point. These patronizing bikelanes dont really help and they're only on certain streets. Same with sidewalks, every street should have a proper sidewalk for bikes and pedestrians(they aren't the focus point though) to use. Cagers need to bring their A-game up too. They need to understand bikes are going to be on the streets as the ordanance is written, and the distracted driving(drunk, on the phone, eating etc.) needs to stop. This is safty for other cagers and us folks on open vehicles cause right now till my car is fixed I'm a full-time bike rider when I can be.
