I Need to Look At or Photograph a Trice . . .

. . . or similar.

I want to build a tadpole trike. I've got hubs, tubes, a rear triangle/suspension and most important of all a very, very nice man who can weld, put up with tantrums and work to a design that evolves, errr, shall we say, on the fly. If you get me.

What I don't know is - how to make single sided hubs and kingpin assemblies. Is there anyone near me (Nth Manchester) who has a trice or similar tadpole that I can study, photograph or just generally blag a ride on to understand how to plagarise draw inspiration for my own project?

Or does anyone have an old trice or similar? Damaged? FUBARed? Salvagable?
Cheap? Free? Surplus to requirements?

Yours hopefully (and currently unemployed)



Well that's the more blunt way of putting it but as usual he's dead right.
