You should mount the side

You should mount the side pull on the other side of the fork!

Longstaff made trike

Longstaff made trike conversions for roadbikes it used to rear derailure and cassette. I love these things, but I was curious if it was two wheel drive or not.

2WD

If it were two wheel drive, it would need some sort of differential joint in there so it could turn.

Awesome. Interesting

Awesome. Interesting Canti-sidepull set up you've got there.

rear wheellzz

you should put the biggest tires you can on the rear wheels

brakes?

Is that two brakes on the front wheel I see?
I have thought of makeing a trike out of a townie I have.
Looks like a lot of fun to play with!

Yes there are indeed two

Yes there are indeed two brakes on the front wheel: one Paul cantilever one and another Universal side pull. I used to ride a home made trike back in the 80's. The rear end was made up of steer tubes as axles, that ran on headsets as axle bearings inside head tubes. The hub flanges were washers that were brazed onto the steer tubes. the rest of teh bracing was made up of appropriately cut up steel handlebars.
