    Those are the ones, George. Thanks. I'm going to give them a call. That might be a fun summer project. I wonder what they'd say about a motorized version. Char says there are a quite a few owners of those trike tandams that bring them to Children's Hospital. Interested? The pay isn't much but the satisfaction could be incalculable.

    +1 I'd love to have one even if I can't ride it on the street. I bet it is silly expensive if it makes it into production though

    I just love my "Mini-Sportster"bike. I was able to build it to the
    style and look that I was trying to achieve, plus it runs smooth
    and accelerates pretty fast.

    Bairdco the pic of the Skeezix reminded me of the Ellsworth bike "The Ride"

    I want a shift kit like you got real bad for my Schwinn build and I will get one before too long, just went and bought a new MIG welder today so I will have to save my pennies back up for the shift kit now.

    :Question: have you had a bike without the shift kit and if so would you say that the shift kit is the only way to go if a person can afford one?

    I live were there are many hills so I feel that I could benefit from the lower gears and then cruise the flats at a good speed without the very high RPM's in the higher gears.

    There is only one way to go - Get a Shift Kit and be done with it.
    I live in an area with seriously steep hills and have ordered and installed the optional 30 tooth dished chainwheel sprocket and 9 tooth jackshaft sprocket and also made a custom 9 speed cassette by breaking apart a Shimano 11-34T and a Shimano 12-36T together with a 19tooth individual hyperglide sprocket to give the following sprocket sizes.

    11-12-13-14-16-19-23-28-36

    I spent a whole day stripping down the cassette and rebuilding it with various sized sprockets till i found a combination that gives a useful spread of speed increase through the large sized gears and a tight set of gears (11-12-13-14) when road speed starts to meet aerodynamic resistance towing my trailer.

    A few pics of my setup and my bicycle speedo tacho
