    Front Wheel Drive build

    I've been just unbolting it while still upright... then with one hand hold the bike, and the other pull the wheel out (after undoing the brakes). The only difficulty I've had is getting it all back together, which has made me think about attaching the chain stays differently, so I don't have...

    My first build...

    It's been a while since I've updated this thread. My wife and I still ride this quad bike on the local pathways. It's quite fun and a good work out.

    Front Wheel Drive build

    It's definitely a challenge to ride, as in it takes some concentration.

    Front Wheel Drive build

    Thanks! I have been thinking of adjusting the seat. There are a number of "firsts" with this bike. One of them is how far laid back the seat is. My last ride (yesterday) I was getting much better at stopping and starting. But, I still might make the seat a bit more upright. I have had that...

    Front Wheel Drive build

    I've always been intrigued by front wheel drive. So I decided why not build one? I started with a basic Mt. Bike frame (aluminium). I decided I wanted some sort of suspension, the Mt. Bike had a rear suspension system, so that would work for now. Below you can see I started by attaching the...

    My quad side by side tandem has progressed. I took it for a little test ride last sunday. Here is a video:

    TWO Viking tandems, almost finished, in Stoughton, WI

    Oh that makes sense now. Bummer. Well I am interested, and would use the bikes if I got them. However, I'm in Utah. I'd be willing to drive out there and pick them up, but I don't want to insult you with a ridiculously low offer, but with the effort it would take me to drive out there, that's...

    TWO Viking tandems, almost finished, in Stoughton, WI

    I'm curious. You built two Viking tandems? Seems like a lot of work to build two? What was the purpose in building two? Any bites on your ad yet?

    My first build...

    We shall see... and if doesn't work. I can change it! Being able to weld is freedom. Here's the result of all that cutting and welding. It's sitting level and slightly narrower in the front wheels. I also had to weld a little more that tack welds in certain spots... I leaned on it too much and...

    Spent the day cutting welds and refitting and redesigning... not an easy task designing...

    My first build...

    I agree! I've read where some people have three grinders! But I can totally understand that given how many times I've been switching the flap disc and the cutting disc.

    My first build...

    Thanks! I do already have plans to make a trike probably fashioned after the Warrior design. And can see the wisdom in what you're saying. What's interesting to me (being new to welding) is that if it breaks. I can fix it.... I love that!

    My first build...

    Let me start out by saying, I've never welded before this year (2020). I started out by purchasing a welder (Mig) and building a simple cart for the welder. A little about me. I'm 56 years old (never too old to learn!) and I always wanted to learn to weld (my grandfather was a welder by...
