Introduction: The Tyler Trike / Cargo Bike

About: Im someone who cant sit around on my work days off watching tv, so like to make things. I look at something then think " I could make that " i then set about using as much upcycled & recycled materials as i ca…

My old Rottwieller Tyler is nearly 12 years old, weighs 11 stone and suffers bad from arthritis so can only get about a few yards nowadays, we used to love going out for walks and even though his brain still works his body is slowly giving up. I looked at buying some sort of trailer to get him about in but they were so expensive so I had an idea that I could build 1 for him. 1 week later and at a cost of just £4 we have a solution, The Tyler Trike. Its just had its first full run out today and after about 2 miles we came back having had no problems with it. Everything I used I sourced for free from friends and local freecycle sites. It was all welded using a simple stick arc welder and the only thing I had to buy was the paint. I have taken photo's from start to finish to show what I did. Hope you all like it and just remember all you need is a bit of imagination and you can make anything. I have now started a new project and opened a website to show everything,please check it out. http://tyler-trike.doomby.com
