yep, I should have shown the bottom view also. The bottom will be waterproof and should act as a big ski. The crazy carpet idea is realy good.One more advice: with the snow that make the ground with various level of snow, you will ahve snow hitting the square tuve of the frame that hold the front wheels. i suggest to install sme nylon plastic deflector to let your trike to slide on these snow accumulations or bump otherwise the T frame will brake when hitting these snow bump.. well it depend on the wheel size on the front you have... in my case it was 16" wheels.. or ski =)
The dampener will most likely be installed. I want to see how it feel at high speed before taking a decision.parajared wrote:That thing is looking amazing so far. Are you going to do the motorcycle torque dampener mod to keep things stable at high speeds?
Good point, I will use a line of black silicone all around to seal the interface between the frame and the dropout. I also painted the inside of the frame, it had already some traces of rust and its brand new....Very amazing. I LOVE the replacement dropouts, I'm definitely jealous. Are you going to seal them to the frame with some kind of paint, rubber dip, or braze? I imagine if you're doing very wet riding that some water might make it's way inside the frame. Wouldn't want it to rust from the inside out!
Nice find... I will have to try those.As soon as 20" single-sided loopwheels come out, well, that'll handle my suspension needs =)Not sure what I'd do for the rear though.
The MX tire: K760 90/100-16 ( 46$ ): http://www.canadasmotorcycle.ca/kenda-k ... -tire.htmlthe tire looks really good - what brand is that please?
This is a realy good point. I would have bought the Aerogel spaceloft insulator if 5 mm thickness was available easily: http://www.ebay.ca/itm/Aspen-Aerogel-SP ... 2a1c1d6e13i suhhest to but some electric blanket or warmer pad to put under the battery
Interesting... I was thinking about buying the 43mm wide 16 inch rims from recumpence. Did you kept the same tire?order two new OEM rims from KMX and glue them to teh actual rims to make one doublewide rim per side
I believen that his rim are 16" rim for 20" tire.. The typhoon is using 12" rim and 16" tires..adam333 wrote:

He is out of stock, but they were 16"Doublecheck with him if these are 16" rim dia or rim made for 16" tire.
Here is the thread about that project.http://endless-sphere.com/forums/viewto ... mx#p654510adam333 wrote:He is out of stock, but they were 16"Doublecheck with him if these are 16" rim dia or rim made for 16" tire.
Doc, do you have any picture of your "double rim"? and what about the mudguard?
ok, you convinced meHere is the thread about that project.http://endless-sphere.com/forums/viewto ... mx#p654510
I am very proud of the result of that upgrade!
It not just improove alot the handling and cornering but also it give an emergency solution in case if one of the front wheel tire become flat. sicne there is dual tube inside ( one left and one right on each wheel, if one of the tube is flat the other can easyli compensate and it already happened and i was still able to ride the trike with only one tuve inflated on that wheel.
The wheel is REALLY strong and dont think that this wheel could break apart, the epoxy is stronger than the aluminum of these rims!!
the goal is that the tire instead of having a baloon shape like the big Apples, shal have a half moon shape wich increase the handling.the tire want to stay aligned to teh rim while lateral force happen when cornering.
I recommadn that upgrade to anyone with that own a KMX!

I love the dropouts...... something you can run thru a CNC program ?.. or you mill those by hand ?... not sure i even want to know how much it would cost.. but damn.... envy..
thanks Madin88madin88 wrote:very nice work
the tire looks really badass. with that modded 24FET you must have very good acceleration offside from the streets. for winter and ice i think tires with spikes may have better tracion, but i dont now how the winter is like in you area and where you going to ride it
