  1. Ammco Tricycles

    Can anyone tell me the address of "AMMCO"? I have just bought a 26" Adult Tricycle" "Free and Easy" as sold by an importing company here in UK. I did this with the intention of altering it to my own specification and to two wheel drive as per all the info I have found in Atomic Zombie. Thank you everyone. Now the importers are "Retail only"......yes only and will not not get engaged in supplying spare parts etc. but will refer you to various bike shops. ...

    From this …… a pile of donor bike parts

    So I dusted down the air brush and got some rattle cans of primer.

    Safety first, Etch Primer is nasty stuff !

    That's all for now.

  5. Design Change Ideas wanted

    Already made the Warrior Tadpole, fun to make more fun to ride, sadly now scrapped thanks to a darling driver coming out a driveway without looking.

    Anyone got ideas on sensible mods to get this configuration, so far all I have in my brain is to raise the back angle on the forks to match in, or ad an extension to the back forks to compensate for the height, I like the seating ...
