Thanks JJ...

I do like the design... I was looking to do something similar to my Terratrike Zoomer but I was originally thinking of keeping the front wheels outside the skin... and that didn't look possible because the turned wheels nearly touch the trike frame, not leaving much room for a skin... I hadn't thought of putting the skin completely outside the front wheels. Much better for being seen by others as well!

I'd be interested in seeing how you attach the frame to the trike ... I can sort of make out the front attach point, but can't quite make out the rear attach point(s)... if you have time for additional pics, I certainly would appreciate you posting some more!

Last question for now... how is the sight line over the 'hood'... do you find yourself mis-judging the distance to curbs, other obstacles?

Thank you!
