Menards? So you're in the midwest I take it? I just finished a warrior, see if you can find the articles from spinner on the old forum using the internet archive. I posted links to it before on here as well, they made it so much easier to make it.

Yep. I'm in Chicago.

Will do. Thanks for the heads up.

Do you know the old forums' defunct web address?

@Thom_G I checked spinner's build out. Definitely good looking out letting me know about that thread.


Ended up picking that combo up for my rear wheel.

Thinking about tossing a SunTour freewheel on it.

Going to have to re-do the dropout weldments. I must not have tightened the axle ends all the way. It's off by a couple millimeters and now tightening pulls the tire to the left.

Upside. Tires are looking good.

What tires did you put on them? Are that bmx tires?
My experience with such big tires is, that they make the ride smoother as you don't put them on max pressure. But they roll very fast in corners and hard to control as the trike starts rolling.

These.


Grabbed them for surviving pot holes. Chicago's roads are trash.

Also picked up this for the rear.

When you get to the main frame, make sure the frame is higher than the axles on the front wheel or your steering rods won't be low enough to go under the frame. The olans i think are wrong they said its like 11 inches from the ground, but i think thats the bucket, and theres a 1.5 in piece of tube on the bucket, mine ended up being about 13 off the ground to get it right. Basically if you can run an axel though both front tires and its under the frame you're to low.
