Joe’s custom Scout bike – Atomic Zombie builders gallery

“Here is my RD bike. I built it about four years ago. This is a four speed, two forward pedal gears and two back pedal gears.

“Scout” is a solid commuter/townie as well as an intrepid explorer. The transmission was patented in the 1880s,  so it’s nothing new. I’ve pedaled Scout forwards and backwards thousands of miles and it just keeps going (forward).

“Your new stomping grounds look great. I hope you fill all those acres up with new creations. Thanks, Joe.”

Amped up Warrior tadpole trike by Gerry Strope

The Warrior Racing Trike takes performance and looks to all new heights. With triple disc brakes, under seat steering, and a general racing attitude, the Warrior would easily pass for an expensive production import. Built using inexpensive bicycle components and steel tubing, the Warrior weighs in at only 43 pounds, and has perfect handling and braking characteristics. There is not one single machined part on the entire trike, and everything can be built using only a basic welder, hand drill, and angle grinder!

The Warrior Racing Trike uses commonly available 20mm hubs, so there are no hard to find or overly expensive components needed. The frame is completely made of square steel tubing,and everything else on the Warrior Trike can be found at bicycle shops or hacked from scrap bicycles. The building process is designed to allow anyone with a Do-It-Yourself desire to finish his or her own version of the Warrior without requiring previous bike building experience or specialized tools and skills.

If you have been eyeing up those expensive imported recumbent trikes, but
think $4,500 is a bit too steep of a price tag, then get out your tools and build it yourself! For thousands of dollars less than the price of a basic tadpole trike, you can create your very own racing trike that will rival many of the factory built machines available.

Take a look at our Builders Gallery to see other Warrior examples, including many creative modifications to the plan. Our international builders community ranges from students to retired engineers, but they all have one thing in common – the desire to build their own stuff!
