    Re: New toy ? very neglected Nazca Fiero

    I'm sure the bend in the shifter rod will "buff out" Paul.

    It looks a nice bike, the lines are good.

    Worst-case, a new/different hub & rim?

    Re: G;day and advise please!

    Hi Ash,
    Welcome to AZ. Your goals (as stated) are pretty much achievable I think. Are you a proficient welder already, or will this be a new skill you are learning?

    We have the same...

    Re: Warrior rear wheel centralisation jig.

    Doesn't it depend if the wheel you are using is:
    a) True.
    b) Dished.

    Looking good there Ed'

    We would kill for the space you guys have.
    They cram us into postage-stamp plots and call it "living".

    He'll have a job "accidentally" burning thru 2mm box unless he sets his TIG to "Thermic-Lance/Safe-Breaking" mode. :joker:

    Re: Building a python trike Mk2

    Paul,

    You've got your cuts on the wrong wide (if your sketch is to be believed). I see you think it will be "easier to get the required angle" that way. It isn't really, the best way is multiple...

    Re: Building a python trike Mk2

    Hi Paul,

    I think the slice/bend/weld is just as easy with TIG (well it is for me and my TIG plant).
    I understand that yours might not have the same features/functions though, so I can see...

    As long as the slope created does not get your tube side-wall rubbing on the tyre!
    A mock-up in paper/card on a plan-view of the wheel in the drop-outs will clearly show where the clearance needs to...

    Re: Building a python trike Mk2

    Hi Paul,
    Tricky indeed!
    Your mock-up looks like the pedal cranks will almost touch your frame, if they don't, the chainring(s) sitting inboard of them will certainly foul the oblong tube I fear...

    Re: tubing size

    Hi Gphil,
    As FrankCrank says, the plans utilising 1 &3/4 square 16 Gauge steel are more than adequate for most folks. I have made one out of steel twice the gauge and it was awfully heavy as...

    It is not clear to me what specific issues were encountered with the chain idlers but I would offer this bit of my personal experience.

    Re: Building a python trike Mk2

    Paul,

    No matter what you do now, you either have to accept a "hammer-fit" as you put it; Or, place sufficient packing between tabs and seat-frame spine to allow an easier fit that can then be...

    Re: Building a python trike Mk2

    Paul,

    If you want to avoid "hammer-fit" then just put a spacer plate on the inside of the tab where it covers the seat-frame steel. A single 1.5mm spacer will give clearance for "paint". 2 such...

    Re: Danny's Daily Delta

    Another "first".
    Today I managed to tig-braze a cable stop to my frame.
    Just a blob of silicon bronze at either end. Can't knock/pull it off the frame, so it must be ok.

    Ridiculously easy.

    I think you are right Frank.
    I only ever tried the "as per plan" Street-Fox style seat once and that was enough. Uncomfortable, and I just did not feel secure in it.
    I never looked back from the...

    A Birthday Surprise.

    Today is my Birthday and my better-half managed to surprise me with an impressionist style painting of me on the new Delta Trike.

    Hello Hugh,

    I like the Bafang very much. Mine is a BBS01 unit and I have modified it to provide a double 52/39 chainring.
    They really can rip along quite nicely can't they. I have found that a...

    If you have never welded before and cannot guarantee (in your own mind and to the satisfaction of the mother of the kids) that your welds won't fail then I would say don't put the little...
