I ordered this last week from the good old internet. Credit where it's due,
the idea was from Sam Cremeens bike that he made at Twist & shout.

It's the box of mystery  :)
All will be revealed, this is picture two and what was in the box.

I made these the other night at the Portsmouth jam.
They might look similar but were made quite a lot differently.
Just trying some things out so see what works best for a slightly quicker build.

I made a change on the wheel and was looking at it for a few minutes as it's not quite right.
It is 2 days old now so deflating a little but then I spotted something.
Off to try a different version.

These are from the convention that Thelma and I attended.
Now after looking at the wheels I would do something different with picture 7.
Any idea's?

I found it was a little too wide for when people were getting onto the bike.
So might go for plan B and a smaller looking bike seat shape or just a
standard round seat for next time. Once they are sitting on it no one sees
but it does fit in better with the bike to have the bike seat look stool.
