I have just started my handcycle rear suspension and after today I am looking forward to getting it on the handcycle if it works properly these are the images of the first part hopefully it will make the ride slightly more comfortablehttp://s26.postimg.org/9bpmxckjt/IMG_20140514_00462.jpghttp://s26.postimg.org/6iwfdbk7d/IMG_20140514_00463.jpghttp://s26.postimg.org/9n73a40zt/IMG_20140514_00461.jpg

just a little update on the rear suspension. I have started on the link to the main bike frame although nothings welded yet http://s26.postimg.org/jwhxywikp/IMG_20140516_00464.jpghttp://s26.postimg.org/y1nr0prm1/IMG_20140516_00466.jpgthe last image has been rotated 180 degrees so hopefully you can see what i am trying to achievehttp://s26.postimg.org/p58dj1bm1/IMG_20140516_00467.jpg

After standing on my head to view the inverted image, I realised that it was being built inverted, so there was no need for me to invert an already inverted image!
Amazing how the brain keeps telling you its upside down, even when you know you are looking at it the right way.
Looking good. Can I guess that this will be front wheel drive, or do you have a plan for driving rear wheels?

Looks good.

its a replacement rear end for my handcycle which is front wheel drive whilst trying to keep up with my son today when he decided to go of road I decided I definitely needed rear suspension

Sounds like a good enough reason for an upgrade!
Have fun,
