    This is a guy that was paralyze from the waist down who took a ZRX1200 and made it into a tike using a samurai axle modded to fit a sproket on the the differential housing. He designed and made or had a family member help make all the pieces to make the trike. This is a vid of him mounting the bike and loadindg his wheelchair on the back. A lot of people donated money, parts and labor(the paint was done for free)to help with the project so he could ride again.

    Man, I have nothing but respect for that guy! Kind of inspiring to see someone come back from a life changing injury and figure out a way to once again take part in the the things they used to be able to do. That takes some character. :bow:

    I watched a lot of this build up. He did some pretty sweet stuff and that axle was the best part of the engineering I think.
