Hi Naeem,

Another old mechanic trick for washing greasy hand is using dishwashing soap with sugar :wink: . Mix the two with small amount of water and work it in the hand. More friendly than using petrol if glove not available.

Hi Naeem,

Nicely done front suspension, just a thought, you can fashion an old bike inner tube as a dust boot between travel and also to prevent water entering the inside springs.

Hi Matt,

Re: 40 year old factory Electric Trike-Original

Trappermike, can you take pics of the trike?

I can only guess myself what it got for a motor and control.
When I used to work in the marine autopilot industry, I see some shunt field motor being used from that era. My guess is it's a 24v shunt field motor not a permanent magnet.
