Mark’s Manitoba Warriors

“They’re finally done. When me and wife ride these down the street they generate a lot of second looks. She calls them our lazy-boy bikes because they’re so comfortable to ride.

While building these I looked around the internet for alternate ideas, but always returned to Brad’s design. I’ve seen other trikes that cost over $1,000 that don’t look as good as these. Well done, Brad & Kat.

Mark Storen aka Kindamental”

Awesome on both counts, Mark. You and your wife are certainly riding in style. Well done!

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!

UK handmade bike chopper – Atomic Zombie builders gallery

“Hi there. I am from the UK and use Stormbird on the forums. I have combined the forks from Skyscraper and the ideas from Granny’s Nightmare and built myself this chopper.

Without Brad’s help, I could not have achieved this and I am very proud of it (showing everyone I know).

I have both books and lots of plans and feel he is in the garage with me and can here his words in my head helping me solve problems and giving me encouragement when things don’t go as planned.

Well, that is what I am telling the judge when I am in court.  🙂

Got some car wheels and itching to build the next one , but dang the sun is shining and I need to be out riding it!

Regards, Paul.”
