    VK3CKC's eLecTricks Trike Design and Build.

    Some of the dimensioning is still guesswork but I made up what I will call a double corner to form the rear end of the new tow hitch which will now run from lower down on the rear bulkhead frame, around the rear of the rear wheel and back to the other side of the rear bulkhead frame. The frame...

    VK3CKC's eLecTricks Trike Design and Build.

    There is always a way of doing something. I had steered myself into a predicament through trying to dual-purpose some elements of the rear end of my design. What I was trying to do, turned out to be impossible. The remedy did not take much angle grinder surgery, but did result in what turned out...

    That might be because they can be tipped up for easy/rapid unloading. Enables a quick turnaround for getting another load. It would be interesting to know what they were actually carting though.

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

    Paul: That should work. "There is always a way ..." the same as "There is always gold ..." The difficult part is in finding it. With seats, it can be a compromise between what you want and what you can get or will be happy with - complete removal, rake adjustment, front of seat height, fore/aft...

    Epod

    Paul: As you can see, you don't need storage (implies inside) space. You just need to be able to tie it on. Come to think of it, isn't that what you do with bicycles? Must not have been very windy where the video was made.

    VK3CKC's eLecTricks Trike Design and Build.

    So much of eLecTricks is design-on-the-fly. You know, a kind of I’ll-know-what-to-do-when-I-get-there sort of thing. Although I always had what I thought was a pretty good idea of how things would be, it was quite light on in detail in some areas. A lot of what was to go behind the seat fell...

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

    Stormbird: Your frame should now be lighter and I have a couple of similar excess-weight-removal things as well. My modifications have been quite challenging as well. I ended up having to remove the top spreader from the seat frame and replace it with another that allows the seat to sit about...

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

    Funny, virtually exactly what I am involved with at the moment. I'll show you mine if you show me your's. Thought I would have my problem sorted today but have had a couple of holdups. Getting a bit more steel tomorrow morning. We'll see what tomorrow brings.

    part wanted delta wolf speed trike

    I don't but, but you don't want to make them? I would have thought if you have made three machines it would not present too much of a challenge. They are only discs with a certain number of holes drilled in them. Might be getting ahead of myself here. I am thinking of the Timber Wolf. Are they...

    Ed's 'StreetRunner' Quad Build

    Can't remember what my throttle experience was except that when I removed it, its operation was not being sensed. On installation, I had to cobble up a wiring harness extension for the trike and probably bumped it some months afterwards and caused a disconnection. The display indicated a...

    Does anybody know this bike?

    DR. Bob: This whole forum is about "Maybe I will fail". The other side of the coin is "Maybe I won't". You will never know until you give it a go. Sure, it may be 3 steps forward, followed by 2 steps backward at times, but so is life. Give it a go. You'll be better for having tried it - but be...

    Lovely picture. Is your better half practicing that parade wave? Who knows, she may be able to fill a vacancy in the Royal family.

    Ed's 'StreetRunner' Quad Build

    It depends on what you are using. I have experienced riding two e-Assist machines. 1. The first was a very popular Bafang BBS01 mid-drive conversion on a two-wheeler without fitting the throttle. The level of assist between none and maximum can be customised to 1-3, 1-5, or 1-9 levels with 2...

    It is narrow in its present configuration but it is a solid fit and I have it in mind to space it out a little more. Not finished yet.

    VK3CKC's eLecTricks Trike Design and Build.

    Part of the prototyping phase. Not so bad if you can remedy it, even if it requires a change to what was desired.

    VK3CKC's eLecTricks Trike Design and Build.

    I left an image out of the text so far. This image shows one way of ensuring that a kerf is held sufficiently closed for welding. You might recognise the wedge as a welding pick hammer.

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

    I have just posted details of what I am using on my eLecTricks thread. You may be able to modify it. The front mount is pictured, the rear isn't, yet, as it hasn't been finalised. What the top seat connection point will consist of is two telescoping tubes: Outer pieces will be hinged from the...

    Aha! New bodies for new parades. Your future is mapped out.

    VK3CKC's eLecTricks Trike Design and Build.

    At this stage, the frame looks a little too wide. If necessary, I could cut a piece out of the centre to narrow it, and weld it shut. This would result in a full body length weight saving on the amount removed. Any decision on this will be deferred until a solar panel is purchased. The frame is...

    VK3CKC's eLecTricks Trike Design and Build.

    Cockpit canopy "runners" need to be as low down as they can be to facilitate getting in and out. They will run forward from the rear bulkhead frame to a convenient height above the front wheels to provide connections for the dashboard frame, the internal wheel arches, and continue further...
