    My Awesome Wheelchair Mod

    i just finished this up. a 12" kids bike front end mounted to a Quickie Q7 with 3" angle iron and a torsion brace connected to scissor-brake supports. rides so fast, smooth and fun.

                      pretty sweet. What keeps the handlebars from flopping to the side while you're pushing?

                        the rake keeps them mostly straight under its pressure and i can steer with the push of the wheels as well as the handles which max out their turning radius when they hit the seat

                            You obviously worked out a fun mod. I tried something similar, but the steering wheel would not stay forward. Maybe you have more rake than I did. Check your video at 0:20, the comment about more camber is a good one.

                              Awesome, great fun! Now you just need a little hub motor in that front wheel to help you up those hills!
