2/12/2014 Train Wreck Trike
Axle sheared off, spokes pulled out of the rim, fender destroyed.
The cog was sheared off, so we tacked it back on with the MIG welder.
Front Hub Internals
The front axle was broken (and poorly repaired) in two different spots. One of these 'repairs' failed, causing catastrophic damage to the fork, fender, hub, spokes and rim.
A job is never done until all the tools are out.
Front wheel installed after new axle, cones, spacers, spokes and peening the rim where the nipples had pulled through. Straightened the fender as good as possible.
Crank installed after new Bottom Bracket installed.
Broken Front Hub
Note the spoke wound around into the inside of the hub. The axle was sheared off on the other side
Sheared off axle. Also not the previous repair using a set screw to hold the axle together.
Train Wreck Trike
This is what we do. We take this and will turn it into a functioning machine again.
Note all the parts just hanging there...
Box of Left Overs
Can't wait to see if there are too many, or not enough parts in this box...
