It looks like the 24" x 3" Kenda Flame tire.
(same size that I use... I like the feel of these tires and you can go fast on them)
The rim looks oversized, which means it cost $$$.

I need to find a local frame builder.. it's not that hard to weld up a frame once you have a jig built etc.. Just a tad expensive to start up..
26" rear wheel will cut into the " torque " feel a bit.. but will give good top speed !

Malcolm wrote:Looking forward to more photos Ian. What wall thickness is the frame tube you used. Is it just mild steel? I've been nearly tempted to buy a tube bending rig a couple of times to do something like this myself, but if I buy any more tools there won't be any standing room left in the garage
Malcolm wrote:The frame's looking really good and your plan to use 0.8 mm wall, 25 mm tube sounds like it will give you a fairly light frame. I used 0.8 mm on a tadpole trike and it worked well, although welding can be tricky unless you use TIG.
I'm curious to know what your target market will be. I imagine you'll be selling it with a motor rated at over 200W, so are you planning to sell it is as a licensable vehicle or just leave that up to the buyer's discretion?
