    What you see ---is an idea that's all. "26 in front 2 driven "16s in the rear. I need to make these wheels suspended independently from each other and powered each by its own pocket rocket motor (33CC I think).
    Thoughts and comments are welcomed.

    WOW, looks like an engineering nightmare to me , but dont let that stop you .

    Yeah, it is. I picked up a bunch of broken incomplete bikes. most were full sus bikes. Lotsa knuckles and bushings and pivot points to work with. Done nothing with it beyond what you see. Still thinking about the dual suspension in the back.
    I'll post next step when I get there..flg.

    That would be sweet if you can get it to work out.

    O.K. just remember you heard it here first. What's that? An In-line Trike.
    As we say in T.V. Stay Tuned!.trlrl.

    it looks like you could friction drive the last wheel. I can;t work out how you could power the middle wheel.

    How 'bout an electric set-up and drive the front wheel instead. Seems like dual engines on dual wheels suspended independently would be overly complex and heavy. Just an idea.

    if your considering electric I dont think that dual rear hub motors would be all that complex , an if wired correctly ( note I am not all that familiar with these) you could have esentially 2 wheel drive or independant single wheel on the same throttle .

    Its not going to be impossible to control both engines for both drive wheels simultaneously,
    but its going to be difficult to say the least,
    At this point, i would say just make a trike.
    I just see problems arising with separate engines.

    Some examples of multimotor electric setups (none are mine BTW);
