    Re: Viking total length

    It is built to the riders. And what ever components you choose to use. A pair of 6 to 7 foot people will not build a frame to accommodate a 4 foot rider. If you read the plans, Brad points out how...

    Re: Danny's Daily Delta

    Recommendations: lop off lower. Weld internal tube so you can slide and pin the top of back support back on after transport. At least thats how some commercial companies due it. Alternatively you can...

    Re: Winnipeg velocar

    While I am not you. I would compare the weight of Legos verses aluminum. Plus with Legos you are plastic on plastic verse plastic on metal. So you may not get the quiet ride your looking for. But...

    Re: Ed's 'StreetRunner' Quad Build

    For a shock- you don't need a shock. You can use air cylinders with the air ports plugged. They are various sizes and shapes. And they look like shocks. Just a thought should you find the need.

    Re: Ed's 'StreetRunner' Quad Build

    Looks like a nice one. Is the switch spring on/off or is it a flip on?
    I like the switch on my Dewalt unit. has a dummy lever to prevent me from accidentally turning it on when setting it down.

    I am 59 and I don't feel stable on a recumbent 2 wheeler's when I first tried them out. Commercial bikes were tested before becoming familiar with this site. And that was 10 years ago at 49....

    Re: Danny's Daily Delta

    I look forward to seat and such. I this a front wheel drive being built? With the rear drum brakes I am only assuming. It looks like it is really coming along despite the distractions of life.

    Re: Danny's Daily Delta

    Big fan- and watched it a lot. I also liked " Almost there" repeated several times and then "it just missed"
    But that is movie trivia and not bike build. So I will leave it at that.

    If it don't...

    Question about UK- Do they allow tow hitches? Do they allow Tow hitch mounted bike racks? That's what I am suggesting. I know your allowed trailers from Emma's post of the Zombie Fest and various...

    Re: Building a python trike

    Building a trike based on how its going to fit in the car will never get you a bike you like. So why not consider building a transportation rack for the bike you really want. I recall there are some...

    Re: Streetfox build etc

    Brad has always recommended not using suspension forks with powered wheels. They can't take the torque.
    Would not want your wife mad at you because the fork broke while she was enjoying the ride.

    Re: Danny's Daily Delta

    A couple thoughts for the bearings:
    1) Too much brute force will possibly destroy to bearings or shorten life.
    2) As the tubes were distorted by heat. Could you heat up one and then see how the...

    Re: "Mochet" LodeRunner Velomobile Build

    You can use anything you desire or can get your hands on. Car parts maybe a little heavy for a bicycle. However they use car rims for the chopper plans. As to building a fork. There was a news letter...

    The beauty of TIG, is instead of grinding the weld down. You can treat it like butter. Running the torch back over it and only add filler as needed. Just adjust the amps to pool the metal. As to...

    Something like that. I did it for gear and chain clearance. That's 120 tooth custom cut gear. Unfortunately I never got the chance to try it.
  18. Re: Hello from the City of Destiny (Tacoma, WA)

    Welcome to the fun. To raise the boom. I would suggest leaving the main front boom whole from base of seat. Plans call for a cut. But it will not affect frame or handling by not cutting. Might...

    It's not an ETG which is the true differential as reported by Tick-tock. It is more a limited slip differential. DG72N is model number. No idea if that is a good price as I never got confirmation...

    Re: Ed's 'StreetRunner' Quad Build

    Is your plan to use the inferno wheels, or use donut wheels like the inferno?
    Or did the turn buckle idea fail?
    I ask because of your photos of the wheel and templates.
