Got a "trike" yesterday

I got a "trike" yesterday, a Sun royal blue, three wheel 'trike' ,so that I can get a little exercise. I have to modify it just a little. I plan to spray paint the basket a yellow so that it matches my high school team's colors and my university team colors. I have ordered a couple of bike pennant flags to put my teams logos on them I can ride it around looking a little more in style than just an "old, handicapped guy".

Our dog seems to love riding in the basket. He enjoyed my practice run yesterday as I rode him over to my sister's and back. He never even tried to jump out, only banged at dog on her street.

I have adjusted the handlebars just to make it feel better, it has a large seat - almost like a tractor seat, which is cool. I hope I can get better at riding it this coming week. It still takes some effort going up a slight incline. It does not pedal backwards and only has one hand brake.
It has a low step-thru so that I can get on it with little effort. It carries my weight just fine. I am not wearing a helmet but that's okay in our neighborhood. Now that the weather is getting a little cooler I will want to get out more. My wife said it was my Christmas gift.

  2. That's really cool Mr. E. I can't wait to see it after you've modified it to represent the blue and gold. It looks like a great way to get some exercise. :)
