Of course as a biker... anything round that turns always catches my attention... Below is probably the 4th - 5th "improved" generation of a cargo/ hauling trike used by one of the local staff to ferry guest's luggage to the rest house whenever we are here. Or whatever necessities to keep the accommodation area running. Here's it's empty water cans, other days its meat and vegetables.
Nothing much unusual except for the crank position which kind of reminds me of some recumbent bikes.
On closer look... the tubings are almost entirely reworked from some of the structures like rackings or railings found from inside the factory.
Only part from a bicycle would be the crank, bb shell and the chain stays which has been cut and resoldered.... look closely-- those are motorbike/ scooter wheels!
Normal bicycle rears running 126-135mm axles will never have been able to fit. Obviously the dropouts have been heavily re-worked too given the bolt size on those wheels. But the best part I think are the "seat-stays"
Not hard to recognize what those are eh!
|No tug nuts to keep things from moving? No problemo... Wedgie Stopper. And yes that would have been a motorbike chain the crank is pulling.|
Missed looking at the construction of the front axle while busy snapping these pics.
Well, before leaving this morning, I just couldn't resist trying it out... hmmm how about a 3 yr world tour on one of these?
