Just finished my DeltaRunner and wanted to thank everyone for all the information you guys put on this forum. Been reading this forum, collecting parts and building the trike since early July in my spare time. The plans were great and easy to follow. Really enjoyed it and will build something else after a short break. I think I'm hooked. Thanks again.

Don't know if I'm doing this picture thing right or not but if not somebody let me know. I'm not much of a computer wiz. Thanks SirJoey and graucho for the welcome.

Nice work Coach, looks like you're a natural at this. Took me 3 months to figure out how to get started.

That's a really comfortable-looking ride! It makes the seat on my High Roller look like punishment for bad behavior. I like the color too! Nice work.

Thanks. I really appreciate the compliments. Yes I am pretty proud of my first build. I see many awesome looking bikes built by the folks on this forum. They are a great motivator to someone just starting out. Maybe I can someday get up to most of you guys standards. The trike I built rides really well after I did a few adjustments here and there. I'm a big guy so I made it 6 inches wider and a 3/4 axle. It also has a 24 inch wheel and fork on the front (that's all I had). Everything came off old bikes except bearings, disc brakes and shifter. I did cheat somewhat on the seat. I found a local tools place that had the vinyl covered foam seat for 5 dollars so I built the seat frame and plywood seat and back and stapled it to it. It's really comfortable. Like I said before it was a blast to build. The only drawback was that the temperature averaged about 100 degrees here so I mostly worked on it at night.
