Adult Trike Kiddie Cab

And now for something completely different…

Adult tricycle white with wooden kid bench

The idea for this emerged from the repeated dilemma of needing to transport two kids, which the trail-a-bike simply can’t accommodate. I started looking at cargo bikes, or “bakfietsen” which I had seen all over Amsterdam, but found the cost prohibitive. Trikes on the other hand, were roughly the same price as two-wheelers. I found what I was after on Craig’s list, gave the bike some TLC, built a custom bench out of some pine support slats I rescued from a bed being thrown out, et voilà:

What I started with: Adult Tricycle with Electric Motor Yellow

Old motor components removed: Adult Tricycle Yellow

Primed and painted: Adult Tricycle White

Building the bench: Adult tricycle wooden kid bench
I’ve been toying with the idea of motorizing it (even the most fit of us can only go so far carrying so much weight), hence the locking storage under the seat.
