Somewere on the forum there is a spoke calculater,would have to search. Thats a good picture,i would put a buggy spring in between with radious rod to support,like a model T Ford. For the rear i think regular 26" trike wheels with haevy spokes would be do good. For power i think i would use a lawn tractor engine and rear end. I have one with 12hp twin briggs and hydrostatic rear i think would be perfict............Curt

Curt,
My idea was that I would choose bicyce's rim (for instance 26") and wire-spokes for 24" wheel, so I could build my own hubs, wider and with bigger diameter then original bicycle's... So, knowing lenght of spokes and diameter of rim - to calculate diameter of hub! But, that is the same process of calculation, I suppose?
