Posted by: Ben Siebel TITLE: MOTORIZED BICYCLES: Schwinn Tri-Wheeler
I just bought a Schwinn Tri-Wheeler and now I~m trying to figure out what to do with it. I~m thinking of making it into a custom motorized bike. I may use it for delivering produce in the future.... does anybody have any ideas???
I may re-configure the frame, change the rims, handle bars, and add a springer fork and disc brakes..
I like the look of the older motorized bicycles..
If anybody has any ideas that would be great!!!

The one I saw was powered by a common car battery. There were too many old Raleigh~s and thankfully then I was not crazy enough to get that too! Sounds like fun, it~s stable with the 3 wheels. However, Those 26 X 1 3/8 wheels are not the best choice to be loading down onto with a motor and heavy battery. Can you lace 28 X 1 1/2 English Raleigh Tourist D.L.1. rims onto this? Then again the front fork is an issue.
