XC Quad - couple of years on

Below is a preview, click to read the full post

The quad has been used quite a bit over the last couple of years. From downhill on single track in the forest, which is awesome fun if a little challenging trying to pick two lines at once for each wheel track, to cruising around the streets on rides with my young daughter. The only work I've done on it is modify a Kmart outdoor chair for the seat and fit some narrower tyres. Haven't had any issues with breakages or excessive wear on any parts.

After many years of contemplation, several weeks of sacrilegious dismembering of 5 bikes from the local tip with an angle grinder, bit of time with the TIG welder and lathe, a smattering of parts from my spares bin, a few ebay bits and plenty of head scratching..... my first concept XC Quadricycle has been born.
