wheelie bars ?
« on: November 23, 2012, 12:10:56 am »
who would think they would really need wheelie bars , but i do . my trike just has so much torgue that it wants to stand up easy & the front end is not lite . so i am araird i will break something in the front end. i have an idea . i can get some trailer leaf springs & cut them in half , but what kind of wheels will hold up . you can see how the leaf springs will bolt up the the trailer hitch frame .

what size wheels you looking at using?? you dont plan on riding long wheelies on them either right??? just using them to keep the trike from lifting too high....

Good luck finding any hockey pucks in this state! Been down that road already.

Skate board Wheels? They even have bearings.. Just a thought.. Wouldn't be much pressure since the springs will be flexing..
