    Hello - I'm Chris in Georgia and I'm interested in building this trike too. I'm working on a scale model of the frame using 1/4" square plastic for the steering bridge and 1/4" balsa for the rest. I'm confused about a few things and hoping they'll make more sense after building the model. I think I've worked out a good way to install a bottom bracket shell, but I'm still confused by steering bridge. I also don't see how the bottom of the seat post attaches to the rest of the frame.

    Thanks for joining the forum. I'm a hands on person and there are several things I don't understand about the trike just looking at the plans. BB would be easy using U bolts through a 1/4" al plate. I just wish they had shown us how they did it at N55. I talk with another person that e-mailed N55 a couple of times but never got a response.
    I've some medical issues going on for the next few weeks and will be hit or miss on the forum. After that, I'll start a build. (2 months). I'm really looking forward to what you come up with. I hope more people join the forum. More ideas.
    Thanks again for your imput.
