Whilst waiting for a few bits for the SWB I decided I had enough bits to make a start on a new trike. I'm going to make a fat wheeled tadpole and was inspired by the Mambo. I like the use of his uprights to get the trike sitting so low but I'm less enamoured of the steering which just appears to be held in the hands from a U/J rather than having any fixed column. Now, I was going to use motorcycle wheels because I have them but a couple of donors came up cheap so I'm now going that way. The Avigo Monster is the same bike type that donated to my SWB project and again I found one with some flashing still left on the nearly new tyres. These will absolutely have to be relaced and I have some 20mm axle disc hubs on order for just that task. The bigger wheel came from a folding fat bike that frankly had the absolute cheapest of everything bolted to it. Just horrible! Amazon is full of these things with leccy motors on for around £1000 - I'd be seriously peeved at the quality of the base machine for that money but it was just the wheel and back end I wanted so was fine. I swapped to a road tyre because as usual the thing came with a knobbly and I hate them. The bike was dog cheap because the rear wheel kept jumping out of the frame according to the seller - probably the bent rear axle had some say in doing that! One more thing to sort. I've started with the uprights and used the bearings recommended on the Mambo site. I have to say that they make VERY quick work of making the steering gear. They're a doddle to press in and are very smooth. I haven't got a drill the size I need yet (25mm) for the tube for the axles to pass through so that's awaiting the postman.
