Anthrophex: Part 2 – The build

The H Trike – Part 4

Sadly, my summer is coming to its end so I’ve been taking my trikes out for as many drives as possible to get the last few miles out before I return to Nottingham. I’ve decided to take a video of me driving around my estate – for your pleasure, of course! Yeh, I look like […]

I originally decided on using 20x10mm box section but after a bit of research, it turns out that I could only really find it […]
