Default Well, Hello!

Hi all, I stumbled on your forum here looking for disc brake setup for my cruiser trike moped low-rider rat rod. I really need a shorter name - lol but thats a question for a different area i'm sure.

Anyways it look like I need to go search around a bit but I wanted to stop in 1st thing and say hi and tell ya about my project.

I sold my car and decided to come up with a less costly way to buzz around town. So obviously I thought Trike right? Who's with me, High 5 !!

I came across a motorized trike with a very weak 2-stroke motor that had been used, abused and put away wet.

I fell in love with it, Drove 6 hrs round trip to pick it up and paid too much but came home with it anyway.

Ripped off the gas engine, cleaned up the backyard builders weld splatter, tuned up the gearset, chain and most importantly fixed a positive trail problem.

Overall I plan to install electric motor/s and install a chariot style rear end for my dog to tag along and maybe even carry groceries.

So now I am searching for just the right electric setup, I am off to go look but I'm sure you will be hearing from me again!

Here is my Picasa webs / Google+ images site, enjoy!
