    I finally delivered the Trike to my Grandson tonight and he had a blast riding it up and down the road in front of their house. Gumpa

    That's fantastic! Nothing quite like a bike to make a kid feel independent. Looks like he's having a blast! :)

  7. Here's my big boy's trike (well, two of them actually);

    The pedal trike (called a "barrow" over here) is incredibly light - before it was converted to a tourer it used to be a single speed fixed wheel time trial machine. It weighs absolutely sod all and is freakishly quick even when pedalled by an old fart like me.

    The other cars are my two late model FOrds. The third Ford is in the old stable behind;

    That is cool. I bet he loves it to. I would have loved to see his face when you gave it to him. I built a bike for 2 with my grand daughter. She is 7 years old. I put a 20" in back and a 26" in front. Thats what we have to take when we go for bike rides. You know if i knew grand kids where this much fun i would had have them them first.

    My son told me that Grand Kids are the only excuse you have for not killing your kids. I never had time for my own kids but now even tho I am retired I have 13 Grandkids that all have me right where they want me. Gumpa

    Looks like it only drives the left wheel, no diff, not live axle either.
    right wheel free-wheels.
