Hello All!
First off, I must admit that I'm not planning on adding any wheels to any of my cycles in the near future. I have, however, recently inherited a scratch-built VW-based trike sorely needing the Honda 650 front fork suspension replaced with HCS and an automotive type wheel and tire.

From what I have seen so far, I am confident I will find a design I can duplicate without a lathe, using mostly off-the-shelf components, welding, drilling, grinding, bending(non-precision of course), sledge hammers, and profanity.

Happy to be here!

-Doug

Here's a picture of my Mother and Father (the builder) on the trike. I think this was taken at a Brothers of the Third Wheel trike-in in Florida.
