Introduction: Three Wheeled Bike

Picture of Three Wheeled Bike

I built a 3 wheeled bike its really cool and a lot of fun making it too.continue to the next steps.the tools you will need are

wrench(impact gun will work too)
something the bent out meatl(iused a floor jack)
measureing tape
(just for looks at the end spray paint)

Step 1: Step 1 Making the Back Bike

Picture of Step 1 Making the Back Bike

first you need two bikes(that work).take one bike and put it aside well need it later. take the one bike you want to use for the back. take the front wheel of and put it a side.(you wont be needing it its a 3 wheel bike)bend out the fork to fit on the back of the back of the other used a floor jack. now its time to go to the next step!

Step 2: Step 2 Making the Front Bike

as I said in the last step make sure the back bike will fit on the font one.un-screw the back wheel and check to see if the back bike fits on it.if it doesnt fit.bend out the forks some more untill it does. continue to step 3

Step 3: Puting It All Together

put the back wheel of the front bike on BUT DONT SCREW IT ON!while the wheel is setting there take the back bike with out the wheel and put it on the back wheel of the front bike and make sure its stright then i used a impact gun to put it on.if you dont have one use a wrench. make sure its tight.

Step 4: Riding the Bike

when riding the bike make sure everything is tight.also when all finished is you have two different colored bikes i suggest painting it all one color unlike a cheap-skate like me i just left as is.if you paint it all one color one wont look like a douf ridin it. thats my 3 wheeled bike if you want to know how or want a step by step email how to build it send me a email or a privitet message. Also if you have any other ideas on a four -3 or any wheeled bike please e-mail me at suzukidirtrider@hotmail.com

Hey, this is a great instructable and is very informative. Just one thing is missing... pictures! It really helps a lot when trying to follow directions so you should consider taking some photographs. Once you do that and leave me a message when you have so that we can publish your work. Thanks! Thanks for the cool instructable and we hope to publish this soon!

If there is no second rider will the back half tow nicely? Is then throw big saddle bags on it and it is a bike trailer.
Maybe some bungee cords could be setup to "steer" the back half or encourage it to follow along but allow some flex in tight turns.

make a huge chain with them

wouldn't this technically be a tandem bicycle?

That is a cool idea. I never thought about doing anything like that.

Have you tried a 4 wheel bike made with 3 bikes? I am wondering if this would work. Might there be some unforeseen engineering challenges with a bike train? I have two kids. I have also wondered (even with the three-wheel version) how this affects going up hill. You have clearly added a lot of weight, but now you have also added another set of legs to power the beast. Is it easier or harder to go uphill?

actually it depends on how heavy the person is. I used mountain bikes so we had gears that made it easyer. but if the person in the back is heavy its becomes harder but if he/she has muscle that helps alot. and yes I've tried a 4 wheeled bike and it makes it REALLY hard because when the person in back lean it all falls.... (I'm 12 so yes I've tryed everything from 5 wheels to 3 wheels) if you want to know anything thing else just send me a message or comment -andrew
