converting a bike to a trike?

anyone have info on converting a bike to a trike? My disabled son has balance issues but wants to ride with the family, however we can't afford a new adult tricycle or one of the expensive conversion kits. He's much too large for training wheels to work. I'm hoping to find a way to convert an old bike with minimal expense and no welding.

Valr, have you find out a cheaper solution ?. I'm in a similar condition !!!

I still haven't found a solution, but we were talking the other day and he said he'd like a bike with a side car, so we might try to do something like that. He now would need an adult size bike as he is a large 11 year old. (5'5" and about 170 lbs)

As a hobby I build bikes and a kit you can buy on ebay is the easist solution
