Re: Wind Deflectors

Hi Eric, thanks for the information and the pictures - it doesn't look too hard to do now you've explained it. For some reason I had brain freeze on how I would attach them etc...!

On a couple of long trips recently I've found the buffeting from the wind to be a bit tiresome (I know, I'm getting old!) Having spotted wind deflectors on some Trikings at recent meets I'm thinking of fitting them too. So, are they effective at reducing buffeting, does anyone have a pattern or draw...

Re: VMCC Founders Day 2021 , Stanford Hall, Leics.

It's looking great for Sunday! I'm driving down Saturday afternoon and camping overnight in my van towing the Triking down in a trailer. I'm in a blue VW Caddy if anyone else is also camping though the Triking is fairly obvious!

Re: VMCC Founders Day 2021 , Stanford Hall, Leics.

It sounds like a sensible decision Dick but it would have been nice to meet up there. I'm going down the night before and camping in my VW Caddy, prob take the Triking in the trailer I bought off you as I haven't finished making the braked A frame yet.

Re: Build tread (kind of)

Seeing all your creative work makes me want to build yet another Triking and also buy an English Wheel to make the bodywork from scratch etc..! However, I'd better finish off my other kit car project first! Look forward to seeing it in the flesh.
