    Nicely done. It looks great. I am using 8x LED strips for my build, they were just a few bucks on amazon. I'll be controlling them with an arduino so that I can make patterns for them to really draw attention to the trike. It wouldn't be hard to do the same here :)

    What about a "Jokes" thread? - I will start.

    Did you hear about the farmer who had 99 cows? He rounded them up and had 100. Of course, you know how he added them? A cow-culator. This was no easy task, still. His tractor was broken and his horse was sick, so he had to hoof it. Of course, he only got into the cow business because he...

    AZ inspired trike build starts!

    The build is on hold right now while the weather is just so cold. I'm spending more time indoors with my family as it's not just warmer, but my wifes health has taken a few turns for the worse, and so I'm trying to spend my time wisely. Hopefully I'll be able to iron out the small issues and get...

    AZ inspired trike build starts!

    Ironically, the chain skipping is happening on the shorter of the two chains. I think there's a stiff link or 3.

    AZ inspired trike build starts!

    Got some work done yesterday. I still only have the one brake but it's rideable. I hooked up both rear derailers, and can now shift. I went for about a half mile ride and have a chain skipping issue on the rear chain, which could be due to my jackshaft not being as straight as I want it to be...

    what does the street fighter or warrior cost to make in time/labor and $$$?

    Do as you wish, but please keep a couple of things in mind: You bought these plans from somebody who's designed, built, documented and instructed the world on how to hack on bikes. If you're going to knock the designs, do it after you've built at least one design. And if you do need to knock...

    AZ inspired trike build starts!

    I was just discussing the paint, as we're getting That Close. I'm not too worried about it though. Things have been busy elsewhere in life and it's been cold and dark. So I've been indoors hanging out with the family. I also was getting cranky from not being out in my shop working on the...

    ' No Weld ' Plans

    I'd love to see this as a legitimate AirBNB listing. I mean, running a backwoods canadian resort IS full time work, right?

    ' No Weld ' Plans

    🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣 "Shacker Space" is what really got me LOL. At work I wrote a training module on how to properly troubleshoot anything and I named one section "Troubleshooting yourself in the foot". Considering you coined "shackerspace" I thought you might appreciate the pun lol.

    ' No Weld ' Plans

    In the US they call them "hackerspaces" and they are few and far between. There's so much liability and cost involved that they have a hard time. They haven't really taken off that I can tell, and only exist in the biggest of cities where there are enough people to support it.

    Thanks for the input! The paint is just spraypaint so it's really no big deal to repaint an area that needs work. No high brow paint jobs here :P my last recumbent had the paint brushed on which actually worked really well.

    Opinions Wanted... AZ Subscription Based Mega Plan Site!

    You might consider teaching. You're already good at it. There are many sites (udemy.com for example) where you can upload video courses for people to take, and you get $$ when they buy them. There also may be a local college interested in someone with your background to teach some classes...

    AZ inspired trike build starts!

    Indeed, the back felt fine but I did feel like I was going to slide off the seat. I'm going to shim it first to see if that's enough. Hopefully it is, I don't feel like cutting and welding it. Once I have it all set up and am sure I won't need to weld anything else, I'm going to paint it. Which...

    AZ inspired trike build starts!

    Speaking of things from "way back", it's been a little bit since I worked on the trike. The weather got COLD and so did being on my shop! It finally warmed up just in time for it to get dark at 5pm. But today, I went for a ride! The jackshaft got welded up and now it actually moves under its own...

    Wow, looks great, no matter the weight. If anyone asks just say it's a "Plus sized model" :P
