FergusonTrikeFenders

Close up of the custom fender mount. Due to the design of the trike, traditional mounts were not feasible and I created these custom three stay mounts. You can also see the wiring from the front dynamo hub to the rear light on the basket. No batteries!

 

During the 2010 Texas Custom Bicycle Show, I was approached by a couple looking for a custom trike. While both loved to ride, the wife had some balance issues that meant she was more comfortable on a three wheel bike. She had a stock trike, but these vehicles are in general built for short, elderly riders. She stands at around six feet tall and is in her forties. This three wheeled version of our Ma Ferguson Dutch bike is the result. Not only was the bike built to her measurements, it also included standard Dutch bike features like dynamo hub generator lights, internal gears and brakes, fenders and chain guard, and large cargo basket.
