Project trike

Some of the more astute of you may well have noticed some subtle changes to the look of the blog, one of these being the addition of a new page...... project trike. The idea behind this is to produce a low cost usable trike. I did consider a motorbike but a trike appeals to me more at the moment. Whilst helping out at the Chunkster's workshop he happened to mention a potential donor bike that has come into his clammy ickle claws. After a brief discussion and a gentleman’s agreement the donor bike is now the base for what should prove to be an interesting project.

The donor is a CCM 600 with the Rotax 4 stroke engine, it may not look much at the moment and it’ll be a steep enjoyable learning curve for me, but with help and therapy from the Chunkster I'm sure this will be something to smile about when alls said n done. The project will be reported on in more detail than this brief introduction, but I just wanted to get the ball rolling so to speak (which is more than the wheel-less bike does at the moment!)

All the best from the ‘Fish.

Been seeing some trikes around lately with the single tire in the back and two in the front. I can't help but think they would be more stable in curves, but that's just a feeling, not fact.

Love the idea of a trike. Much better than snowshoes! I like your upfront pic. by the way. Almost as beautiful as mine:) Water spirts, we are.
