Finished up the paint job hehe. Still a few things to add, like the matching front fenders, the luggage rack, and a stick shifter. Oh, and the chain was swapped out to a sweet black and white chain.

Not only are the lamps awesome, they can keep you warm in the winter. :p

I have followed your progress through the blog and here, and its been very interesting. As Brad said, its truly a work of art. I am not sure I could get any riding done on such a vehicle, since people would be stopping me every 10 feet to ask about it.

Great job.

Steam power is so cool! Imagine a modern street chopper with a steam spewing, wood burning power plant. Now that would be out there.

Maybe a steam powered version of overkill?

Well, I'm not up on my steam engineering, but I'll get working on it... :p
Brad, when's your steam technology book coming out? Hehe.
Anyway, got new tires for the streetfox. Higher PSI gives it much less rolling resistance. Got a pair of Primo Comet tires on the front at 100 PSI, and a Schwalbe Big Apple at 60 PSI for the rear. Plus they look pretty cool. :)

Yes indeed, that trike is out of this world!

Say, what's the tag on those Primos? I was thinking about getting a pair.

They're US$14.99 each at Dan's Comp, which ain't bad at all. :)

The only thing is, I had to buy a new tire pressure gauge, the old one didn't go high enough, heh.

Check out the new ride video from the Perkiomen Trail. I love the bounciness of the new tires. :)
