Two Wheels Are Better Than None

Okay! Now the trike is really starting to take shape. The cross beam the two front wheel head tubes will be attached to has been chopped and welded and we get to have more fun with steering geometry. The head tubes have to be mounted to the cross beam at just the right angle so the wheels turn on a single point, and with a wee front leading tendency so the wheels automatically track forward. This is the hardest part of the trike build.

Here's the cross beam ready to go:

Here is the cross beam clamped to the main boom, with wheels leaning against it just for show. The seat tube has also been welded in place.

Wee! Imagination Tricycle!
