    Early 80s, "el cheapo" D.I.Y. Mother's Trike was built over one weekend using the tubing which
    carries most house wiring in USA. Electrical Mettalic Tubing or EMT, for short.

    I think that the Mother Earth News staffer was short and around 100 lbs.
    - sopping wet!!

    With my 230 lbs. I'd build with smallest steel exhaust pipe for strength and hang the weight. Our
    back roads in Wyoming aren't forgiving of underbuilt bikes.

    Construction article on Mother Earth News 2F1R homebrew trike with specs, parts list and drawings.

    This article is available online at the Mother Earth News website.
