    "We built this because my youngest two kids needed bigger bikes and they both love workshop time with daddy.

    One of the kids from school turned up on a shop built chopper, so Tay looked it over and said, "Me and my dad can build (one) better."

    We've built all sorts from scrap wood and metal and they have even helped me with rebuilding an old Land rover.

    Tay decided he wanted a trike after seeing my Gladiator (chopper trike) plans, and he also looked through my 15 other plans to plan future bikes. The front is based on the Gladiator chopper trike and the rear, I think, was based on the DeltaRunner Recumbent Trike, but flipped over.

    The forks are made from 16mm od x 8mm id blow pin shafts left over from machine re-furb at work. Suspension is made of old trampoline springs I found. The handlebars are from an old rotavator which I'm planning on using engine on quad-cycle (so many ideas, so little time).

    I had to turn some sleeves to fit them as id was bigger than od of forks. Tay helped with drilling on lathe. Front wheel is 20" and the back started as the same size, but are now 26" as we needed the smaller one for his little sister's trike.

    I just wish he would let me finish painting it, but he's too busy racing on the road with his mates! I am impressed with how tight a turning circle it as and how fast he can go."
