Smile Army tricycle I picked up in jan from spooky tooth

Finally got a new camera. Here some pics of the army tricycle i picked up from spooky tooth in jan. Changed out a few things like the fork, disc wheel, better pedals. I use the trike to get around my area. so she doesnt really see the major roads very often. I love riding it, planning on changing out that big seat to something smaller along with a wider front wheel. Anyhow here some links to my photobucket. Hopes it works.

Thanks angel! I really like ur trike also. Yes those seats take a while to get use to. I use a bmx seat for a week and i really like it more but it too narrow. Still lookin for a seat to fit me. I noticed with the bmx seat, I had better control when making turns. The big seat, almost have to slow way down to make a turn. I really like ur exhuast too, Thinkin about makin my own or get one from spooky tooth. I really like to build me a new one, Just havent decide how i want to build one. Thinkin gt2 frame with 4 stroke or wait fo the ampt frame to come out. The gt2, I just want the frame n fork not the whole bike. Gotta brain storm.

I will have to look into that. I am hard of hearing so i don't do phone unless u want me going huh million times lol. I have planned on going down there as soon i can get on that side of town. I want to see it in person b4 i decide. If I like it, I might just get the whole thing n sell the hd wheels on here since they are not disc brake wheels. Soo many choices out there, hard to choose. Thanks for the tip!

spooky done a nice job on that trike, am sure your having alot of fun running around, i like staying to the quieter streets as well, less chance of getting over by someone texting behind the wheel !!!!!!

They did a great job building the trike. I love it. It is fun to ride. Yes it is much safer to ride the quieter streets than the major roads. Driving and texting is big here as i see it all the time on the city bus watchin traffic.. Well it been a while since i rode on one since gettin the trike.

How does that trike handle with only one wheel pulling, especially under hard acceleration? Really like this and have been searching the reads here and came across your post. Been a while so you could give some input I bet. Thanks gphil
