I should only need to add the small piece of steel which I colored red and steel to extended the forks. The black blob is the seat. Does the geometry of this look reasonable?”

Although the front end of a bicycle is quite simple compared to many other types of vehicles, there are certain subtle angles that can affect the way a bike or trike steers. A few extra degrees of head tube angle can make a ride feel “twitchy”, or too much rake can create something called “wheel flop”.
When building a bike from scratch, you may have to mess around with these angles in order to get your ride tuned exactly the way you like it, and you will quickly find out that there is no magic rule to getting it right without a little experimentation.”
