    Another FWD Delta trike.

    of course if you squeezed a horizontal pivot in brushing the tyre and connected the spring to the Python pivot you could have front suspension ........ I'll get my coat , shall I put the milk bottles out when I go ? Paul

    My life with Python trikes Mk1 , Mk1.5 , Mk2 ?

    Popshot By that I meant ' completely new ' based on this :- Much like the one DannyC is currently angest'ing over , however we are going down the same road for different reasons. For DannyC it will help with his length challenged inside leg and humongous seat height. For me it will help...

    My life with Python trikes Mk1 , Mk1.5 , Mk2 ?

    Not really I have not explained it very well , I mean 1 front and 1 rear derailleur. It is so hilly where I live I need at least 2 front rings to get a low enough GI to climb them. A 24" drive wheel will bring big problems as well and may need a Megarange 34T and a front ring of 24T to get low...

    Another FWD Delta trike.

    Not sure why you need to do this ? You already show pictures of the rear frame where you can sit on it ? So why not just build simple wooden frame that can support the front end in the desired position ? This one is useful as it can hold up a pivoting front end should you nee to work on it ...

    Another FWD Delta trike.

    Dan Ok a bit confusing as to were the seat will be in relation to the picture on the left ? Can I suggest you drill some new holes in the seat & chains stays then strip the paint from the existing holes and weld them up ? Python number one broke across one of those holes.... Paul
