What to do , what to do .....

I'm sitting here looking at my worksman single speed foldable trike,,,, looking and thinking how can I make this bike radical ? First thing thought stretch it by extending the frame right where it folds if I undo the hinge part , now its two pieces and more pipe and now it's longer but then what ? It's got 18" wheels and a basket in the back ,,,,, but what else ????

For Tricycles try looking at Rat Rod Bikes for inspiration. There are some mildly modified bikes and some that are wildly modified. https://www.ratrodbikes.com/

I am saving a Schwinn exercise bike to someday make a trike. My wife said she would leave me if I were riding around on a trike. In her mind, only old folks and drunks ride trikes. My thinking on my future trike build is a pedal powered pickup truck. I don't have any details worked out yet. It may have an electric motor on it.

Please post some pictures of your Worksman.

well you know your wife is pretty much on point with that trike thing because the trike belongs to my wife and doesn't ride and I'm not gonna ride it like that either that's why I'm looking to mix it up a little bit and make it worthy,,,, thanks for the link and good luck with your triketruck ......lol
