'Spinner' Quadracycle for Maker Faire Figure '8' Race

Build of the last 10 days or so. Two 16" kids' bikes. Exercise seats, tiller steering..too 'quick', will have to make a cable steering set up. Used the cranks/bottom brackets as jackshaft..still will have to see if alignment of combined cranks/arms is good enough. Front Wheel Drive, rear steered. 12" wheel version to follow, with cable steering.

Enough for now..

Here it rolls with three on board..

The Rainbow Kinetic Chicken Wheels with electrical conduit spokes were an impulse afternoon project in the summer of 2004...

Another quadracycle..?

nice, huh?
