It LIVES!!!! The beast rode today! The tanktrike went on a series of test rides today!

Today, my youngest assistant, Seth Robert and I took the Tanktrike out to the big playground near our home and gave it a thorough test ride.  We took the most broken up sidewalk route there without incident, rode standing and sitting down, single and tandem and I feel very satisfied and a little tired.  We took it home on the road and it handled very well.

The frame is complete!,  The wheels are on, The steering is ready!  Just need to mount the seat and finish installing the drive train.

The newest version of the Tanktrike front end.  Some custom fit square aluminum tubing and some scrap salvaged from a junked wheelchair will brace the new aluminum I-beam main tube extension. I am getting excited because I expect to have the frame reassembled shortly.
