Making Trike Hubs Without a Lathe – free DIY tutorial from AtomicZombie.com

“First of all, I would like to thank all of those who visit our forum and help others with advice and offer their great tips and tricks. There have been two alternative ideas posted in regards to creating the hub flanges that I use on trikes and quads such as the DeltaWolf, Kyoto Cruiser, Street Fighter, Gladiator, and Lode Runner. One alternative to the machined disc is to cut the required flatbar or plate using the appropriate sized hole saw. The other alternative is to source out precision made washers of the appropriate size. Often these washers are called “fender washers”, “dock washers”, or “aircraft washers”.”

Upright TADPOLE trike? – Atomic Zombie™ Extreme Machines Builder’s Forum

“Does such a thing exist? All the trikes that I have seen are the Delta design as uprights. In theory, it must be possible to mount two pairs of suspension forks at the front and maybe someone clever could make it lean to help steer?

Anyone seen anything like that?”

Don’t be afraid to build tadpole trike headtubes – Atomic Zombie™ Extreme Machines Builder’s Forum

“In order to figure out the Center point steering geometry. ( see page 20 of the StreetFox plans ) I had to mount the tires. Brand new 48 spoke wheels with 14mm axles, but no tube liner.

So, a couple of layers of electric tape does the trick.

For added protection a Slime tube. ( with a florescent green cap )

Now I can take the measurements to figure the angle for Center point steering.

These StreetFox plans sure make it easy!”
