I'm working on making my family's bikes and trikes easier, faster, safer and more fun and learning new skills as I go. Bike riding is a healthy way to reduce pollution, conserve oil and have fun.

Phase 1 completed on Tank Trike!
The first shot is the tank with the upper bars cut down to below 4 feet off the floor! Important but I found the bar ends didn't fit, I cut the handlebars from the steerer tube
and inserted an aluminum boom stem from an old recumbent bike project and topped it off with a Scott AT-1 handlebar and the bar ends! Saved a lot of weight, made it so you can ride with your arms at a comfortable level and gained a bottle cage mount and cable mounts. The boom bolts need to be shorter but if it's dry tomorrow a test drive will be attempted. See previous post for more pictures of the tank.
