06 impala frame swap is needed.
I tried the frame swap, 2 times and did not work evan tried cutting the bike frame open for hidden rust and that also did not help. Thanks for the suggestion

Hydraulic drive for trike.?

I am in the (long term) process of rebuilding my tricycle recumbent bike (a tadpole configuration). At present it has the usual long chain driving the rear wheel.I would like to do away with the long chain for several reasons and am toying with the idea of using a hydraulic drive.Cylinders at front and rear with the front driven by my feet and the rear driving a standard pedal set with the normal short chain/gear set - in face the rear frame of a standard bike with the hydraulics rams in place of my legs..I can't find anywhere that this has been done and this worries me as generally what can be done is done.In metal weight would be a problem but I hope to be able to machine the rams in plastic tubing giving me a light energy transfer from front to back.Hopefully it will be electric assist as well but that is another matter.
