    That’s an amazing job for a home built trike but hopefully the gear cluster has some guard to prevent clothing or sensitive body parts from getting entangled. Looks like it would cause quite a mess in an accident or roll over.

    Not the first time I have seen Bruce’s front wheel drive trike as he lives just north of me and have seen him out and about on his creation… As an engineer and from an engineering point of view it is some machine with a lot going for it.. I only have one problem with it but this is just one of my own quirks I am not fond of the tiler steering arm system.. I have this phobia of be hit from behind and getting launched forward into, or onto the fork like steering system.. Can you say kabob ..? :LoL…! It’s a greatly designed trike and I wish him well and many a mile on it…! Best of luck Bruce….!
