    Ed's 'StreetRunner' Quad Build

    Could part of the brake-lines divert into a moonshine still condenser-tube? :unsure:

    Ed's 'StreetRunner' Quad Build

    Copper-Nickel tubing is a common choice for brake lines as it is resistant to corrosion, the next one up from that is stainless-steel. There is a table of BURST pressures HERE. Copper-Nickel doesn't burst, nor corrode as easily as steel. It is perfectly safe for this application AFAIK.

    Looks really snazzy! :D Can you reach the steering wheel while sitting in the seat? It looks a long way in the pictyre,

    Ed, what happens?

    Yay! So pleased to hear that you folks are OK :D

    Sourcing rims

    To put things in a proper context (as I see it/have experienced it). Yes, the vertical non-tilting front wheels on a tadpole undergo additional stress when cornering. No, I have never ever had one "taco" or fold over while cornering, even though I have been up on 2 wheels. I have had a front...

    Sourcing rims

    Speaking from bitter experience.... Accidents can and will happen. Even the best and most expensive "double-walled" rims can get Taco'd (I've done it twice to Sunringle CR18's and they are pretty strong rims). Even a moderately bad taco can be straightened out to be serviceable if you carry...

    Another FWD Delta trike.

    The bit I am puzzling over is the FWD. Yes, I know what it ought to look like, but "me" with a 29" inseam straddling a 24" wheel places me almost on top of the headset. :eek: NO, I don't like the flow-roller. 🤢 FWD/MBB as per Cruz-bike seems to always want to spin round and either smack you...

    Another FWD Delta trike.

    Today saw some "bits" being assembled (not necessarily in the right order, or very well....Of course). ;) I made one of these with 2 8.8 grade M12 bolts. They are aligned and anchored with internal plates that are welded to the head of the bolts and puddle-welded into the main tube to ensure...

    Another FWD Delta trike.

    I have considered it Tom, but I think a really dangerous "Narrow-Tracked" tilting trike is called for :D

    Another FWD Delta trike.

    Cheers! :) I have no room for it (storage-wise) in my little workshop at the front of the house, and so I need to make it capable of being wheeled into the back garden where I have at least got some storage sheds.. Access is restricted to 26"-28" side path and as it (the trike) was constructed...

    Another FWD Delta trike.

    I am sorry to report that the trike parts shown above have all been recovered and the frame (such as it was) cut up. More thought is needed before I can safely make a 24" wheeled Delta-trike.

    (Trike for) Velomobile.... from scratch.

    Definitely worth a try because even if you only have a "partial-success" you will still have a working trike and even if any velo-body on top is less than perfect in all respects it would still be more than most people have. Give it a shot, you may surprise both yourself and the rest of us mere...

    First attempt to build my own Streetfox

    As Paul says, the PPP (Perfect Python Pivot) is indeed a tube with bearing separators (1 for the outer race and one for the inner race) and a bolt through the middle. It works well, uses standard sized bearings and was not too difficult to do.

    (Trike for) Velomobile.... from scratch.

    If you mean a standard suspended MTB fork for each of the front wheels? Yes, people have done that, you can give it a try.
