the first step was to do extensive research. since i am not an engineer it took me quite some time to understand the concepts behind it. an incredible source of technical inspiration was the tilting group over at yahoo: http://autos.groups.yahoo.com/group/tilting/
although primarily concerned with tilting concepts in regards to engine driven constructions the group is surely the best place to find information about constructing a tilter.
also very inspiring are tilting tricycle constructions built before:
- the jetrike: http://www.jetrike.com
- onya cycles' front-end loader. unfortunately the website (http://onyacycles.com
) seems to be dead, but here are a some impressions: http://tinyurl.com/as2cc5m
- youtube has quite some videos about tilting trikes: http://tinyurl.com/ajkp98w
