    Wow! Thanks for the update Hardtail. Love the simplicity of your frame and can't believe how low to the ground the white one is!! Might need some steel heals to ride that one. Curious about the front rims, they each seem a bit different, spokes, tires width...and the green one has different forks. Are they different for different tracks or stunts...or both? The Green one Rocks!!!

    Awesome site! Oh My, fairings and wheel covers! Too to Rule! Thanks, ~PJ

    we used to maKe the forks like the green one has, but the cost of those clamps became prohibitive. Now we bend them ourselves and they look like regular forks on the outside but much much stronger. They are all the same ride height and you don't need steel heels. The outriggers have foot pegs on them to keep your shoes from touching the ground. We pretty much do all the tubing based parts ourselves. We do have a few parts lazer cut and bent, like disc tabs for the brakes, and the pillow block mounts. Everything else is done in house, and by that I mean MY house lol. We are going to need a facility real soon though. here are a couple of pictures of the shop right before we changed it to make room for some new equipment. when it is all installed i will update you. If you are ever in NC drop me aline and come on over we will give you the ten cent tour.

    Thanks Hardtail! Nice clean laid out shop! In the right corner of the second picture with the drill hanging off it, that definitely looks like a Cool Homemade Tool! I was reminiscing about 1/2milers wearing a "Shoe" and my son blowing up a pair of tenny's about every month and a half dragging his feet on his BMX. I get it about the forks and the bent ones do seem more substantial!! My son was out in Charlotte for his work during the summer...we may be ordering one of your frames one of these days but would love a tour sometime, Thanks! Looks like this sport is taking off and wish you guys great success! Looking forward to hearing/seeing more about it. ~PJ

    Hi Hardtail. Went to the website and looked around. Sure like the look of the new trikes. Really like the new seat. Is that just a Tractor seat pan with a cover? It sure looks "right" for the trike. I have seen some of these with the most awful seats. A lot of them look like they would spit you off if you bumped over a stone... And I like the jig table you made. I always like a tool that makes the job easier and repeatable. Very simple yet very efficient. You sure have a neatly laid out shop too. My shop seems to always be a mess.... Just cant seem to stay ahead of it. Thanks for posting this. It just reminds me to not over think things as I often seem to do.

    Thanks Fomogo. I appreciate the message. We are making these as fast as we can, so for us efficiency is a must. Not to mention we are about at capacity regarding room for anything new lol i would love to get a milling machine but alas I have no more room, and now some new eye candy.
