Thought I'd start a thread for the custom 3 wheeler I'm building for my Wifes Cousin's kid who has seizures and cant ride a 2 wheeler. So far everything has been donated by some great people.50's Schwinn frame 1950 murry fork and front fender. And a un known brand trike kit to start the project.

Not many vintage bike collectors here in Bama, too many parents bought Sears & Western Auto bikes for their kids. I did make the 400 mile round trip to Florence to pickup a Schwinn Tandem years ago, it was quite an adventure.

I have found some decent bikes and bought the ones I could afford on my budget! Meet a cool old dude and slowly bought most of his collection!

Got a little bit of work done on the trike. Bought a OCC bike for the rear wheels now I need to find some tires that will fit them. The ones on it were to talk and wide. The box on the back might get replaced with a small hole cest or keg

Been working on a couple other bike projects lately but finally got around to putting a little time in on the trike. Got the back tires on and started rounding up enough chain to put on it. Next will be mocking the front wheel and tire up on it. Going to chang the fork to a Springer also.

After we get in mocked up going to take it to work and paint it. I'm a industrial painter and do automotive paint on the side. It's going to have a bannana seat with tall Sissy bar on it also going to add some shoulder and lap belt on it so he won't fall of if he has a seizure while he's on it. Also plan to add electric assist to it. The back will have a wooden cask cut in half and hinged so he can put stuff in it. Also talking about putting a Springer front end with a deep fender on it. Were building the bike for Damion hes standing by his bike in this picture.

Thanks yes it's been a super fun project plus Damion has been enjoying learning about vintage bikes. We found out the frame was about 11/1/49. Think were going to look for a Monark springer and fenders. Got a couple other bike projects before we get to that though. Think it's going to end up getting painted a real dark Purple metallic.
