my shed-in-a-box is here.
Too bad I ain't so energetic today.
Every time I make a change to MT#1 I have to remember to procure enough parts for "2"
I've decided to stretch the frame of MT#2 by about 10" (~25.4cm).
This is the last effort to make the trike that much more stable at those crazy downhill speeds where I feel not-so-comfortable above 30mph (48kph)
Welder-fella gives me a Wednesday estimate for start/completion.
In the meantime i expect to:
- Finish my *NEW* *IMPROVED* *AMAZING* battery boxes and their mounting brackets/holder-downers (see: MT#1
for the gory details.
- Receive the Nuvinci hub-thingy, drilling the hub flange to accept the 44-tooth sprocket (I guess Dave ran outta time LOL) (He recommended 4mm parts. Being a cantankerous ornery old fool I shall use 10/32 hardware because I have those in stainless steel)
- Erect new shed (just like the old shed except longer-er with front/rear doors for that "breezeway effect" so I can work inside as needed. The current shade solution is already showing signs of imminent self-destruction.
-make the mods to the tricycle axle as I've done on MT#2 for the battery mounts, hitch, and soon-to-be-added upper rear supports for the soon-to-be-added solar panel 'woof' 'woof' 'woof'
all in all I shall be kept busy by my own devices.
