UNDER CONSTRUCTION.
_______________________

Building rear wheel house, 10mm wheel axle. Photobucket or iphone pics huge.



This will be one off part because mold has been modified for building the next velo to a wide chain valley :





Foam and carbon with left and right lateral wings becomes one strong unit to strengthen floor laterally.

Got-R-Done /April 9-19-PM: bonded in ,, dry by morning. Lead weights squeezing adhesive overnight. Next is mount for front chain tensioner somehow.

Custom bottom brackets for the macpherson stuts upfront. Took haf a day and some welding from joe, these are like hilgo/sinner. I put them on yellow velomobiel too.

I ran a 10 car hauler and a 6 car enclosed for 9 years, hauling a 75 thousand dollar 57 chevy convertible one time i learned that the body was sitting on thick leather to frame. Leather last long time, cheap and easy to replace.

I use leather on my six tie-rods at front steering of the velomobiels.

Next experimental project : see if hilgo floor shifter can work.
1)twin cable on rolhoff twist instead of springs is more positive and may help experiment.
2) will make a custom floor mount.

Way lighter than the mule, mule is in storage now. Still need to finish top & rear cowling (above). But iam riding this tomorrow if i can figure out temporary hardware to hold top of seat (probably wood and fglass).

18 speed pinion 4 wheeler, quattrovelo rear hardware from velomobiel.nl



See the saddles (very thick 40 oz fglass/soric honeycomb & some carbon) l made to hold velomobiel on table. Works incredible. Custom molded to belly of velomobiel. Granite piece up front on table with Mavcoat chemical release to do small epoxy work.

Saddles mounted to lift now: late 2019:

CAN BURN SOME FAT NOW. (-:) update 16th 7:00pm, made some brackets for lights, going out again. Love these dang velomobiels. Retired amateur. Well 4 year degree university of google and finished a masters at youtube university:)

Yay, very happy with first ride on this second velomobiel. Be good if my experiment with hilgo floor shifter works. But pinion is great for now. Gotta finish work on top and rear cowling.

Gotta work on big lower mold mod. Wanta make a nose-less, top-less trike style unibody with low walls for easy entrance/exit. Make it in fglass with black epoxy, paint it any color. Put your favorite hardware in. Hardtail or swingarm but will always have front macpherson struts w/sturmey archer drum brakes. No brake at rear for 3 wheeler.

Experiment with hilgo rear floor shifter in my 4 wheeler velomobiel. Need some luck too.

https://youtu.be/DboXK3pKsaw

I mod弾d the longitudinal traction bar, here the new strong bracket i just bonded in to cure all night (DOW u-428).



Maybe this is the base plate i will use, but will sleep on it. This will be a great 10 speedshifter if i can make it work. No springs.

Need 10 speed chain, soaking all factory sticky goo off (i hate that stuff). When clean i use the Aussie痴 downunder homemade wax (youtube). Rice cooker with Paraffin oil (ebay) & paraffin wax (local store). I cook a while and hang up. I like it much better,,, clean chain in a velomobiel stays super clean. He rides a cannondale but i like his recipe. You can use the recipe many many times..

Sittting round. 9 deep cut healing. Deviated septum on Friday left side only. Medicare/plan-F is worth living for.


One of 3 epoxy pumps had leak, new epoxy hardner is thin. Found out michael engineering has a $55 valve just for that.

Ordered box of density foam to finish rear cowling plug on 4 wheeler: posted may, still working on this plug for rear cowling, its July 21. Nowhere near finished.

Here痴 story about deviated septum surgery 21 june. The new tech is here. I had left & right intake bored out to max. Basically no pain today. Surgery was over at 2:30 est. i changed some gauze few times today watching tv. Less bleeding 5 days later. They have a stint of plastic in each nostril nowdays. Doc took stints out Tuesday, absolutely did not feel him taking them out. So happy. Don稚 be scared, if u can稚 breathe or sleep,, if ya have medicare/F:)

I have both intakes done 30 years ago, horror story. Then i found it can grow back. Nowdays your family friends can be happy, breathing, sleeping great. It relieves pressures all in there on eye, other sinus, ear, probably brain , inner ear, etc..

From a deplorable, good info.


Test photo size: ALWAYS KEEP YOUR VELOMOBIELS COVERED.

I am working on rear cowling a lil every day. Rear cowling is a big chore, but it痴 supposed to be because it痴 the plug.

This is a good one I stumbled on: ya know how many aggravating super glues you have bought over the years. Clogged up mess, top will not go back on, etc., well no more.

Well this one is the winner: 迭APID FUSE BY DAP @ lowes or Home Depot/ebay too. Not runny, top always clean,, tip always clean. Do not forget on some projects to mix bakeing soda with it for super strong holds.

Rear cowling plug will be worth all the work.
