Made a custom hub for it. Turned out pretty good I guess.

@Double W Cross Ranch His Mud Lites are on the rear. This is the front tire.

@biggasmowers Considering the speeds you're looking to achieve with this death trap, you really should build a front hub that has precision ball bearings in it.

@Crazy_Carl , I am going to put bearings in it. The bushings are temporary.

@Double W Cross Ranch , I wasn't very happy about spending 72 bucks on one tire for a build that I have around 100 in.

@Buck Mault , yes , it's going to be taken out and ground clean and fully welded.

Taking the tire off to weld it? If not, may consider taking the valve stem out when you do.

Lol no, the hub comes out. The rim is aluminum so I can't weld anything to it, hence the removable hub lol

I don't think that there's anything wrong with that since it's a trike.

I think I am needing to put weights on the front to keep it down. Still waiting on steel for making the front end. The stock front end tube thing is going to be removed and I am going to build a frame that connects to the other new material on the front.

Well, yeah. Right now I lift the front up about 10 inches or so above level and it goes over lol so adding power to it and even with my 170 lbs sitting slightly in front of the center it's going to be freaky
