Beverly Hillbilly tadpole trike, by Ted Aitchison

  1. Well you may laugh at Ted, but most great designs were more than likely archived the first time through their design phase that very same way as he built his trike…! I have seen first ideas that were made from every thing from old saw blades for sprockets to parts from an old fence for frames…! And he is more than right when he say’s that some folks think that you are pretty much independently wealthy when it comes to ordering parts, because I have seen some parts which were nothing more than some cut tubing, and had a price tag on it that would set you back a few meals to pay for that piece of tube,… Well OK…! They did be so kind to paint the tube with a can of black spray paint, but hell a can of spray paint shouldn’t cost you a arm and a leg as well either….! Or should it…?
