Salvaging Wheel Parts ***
I’ve been viewing your website “atomiczombie.com‘ and it helped me build my own chopper bicycle.
Attached is a picture of my bike that I wanna share with you guys, and hope to post it on your cool website! Thanks!”

“The two-seater was stolen. The other trike is what I ride now.
I used two children’s bike frames and an adult bike. Simple to make and the parts can be replaced with regular bicycle parts.
The steering isn’t quite right though and that is the only drawback.
Sincerely, Keith Guthmiller”
Sorry to hear that the tandem trike was ripped off, Keith. You did such a great job and attention to details it was probably very tempting for someone to steal it. Good thing you took pictures and have a back up recumbent ride.
Maybe someone will see the picture online and recognize the tandem as being stolen. Where are you located?
Atomic Zombies – you have a mission. Let’s spread the word and the picture to get Keith’s tandem returned to its rightful owner.
“Hello! This year’s project was the making of a hand bike planned by me similar to the Viking tandem.
I am glad that more people are building recumbent bikes for themselves, and that we may share it with the others in the world with the help of this site (AtomicZombie.com).
Together we can make miracles happen.
With greetings, Gábor Pihokker from Hungary”

“I recently picked up a chopper/lowrider project bike, have been tinkering with it, and am curious to the strength of the fork. It’s a triple-tree style, 1.25″ OD, 1/16″ wall, 29″ total length (tip to tip) fork, with a disc brake mount. The dropouts are 1/4”.
