just one photo today of the installation of the gear shifter cable ...As you can see the adjuster needs attention but will sort it out later ..
Just to let you know that the frame is not as it seems ..(to much flash light)
Also fitted a chain tensioner ...

I love the photos,  it shows how easy (relative I know)  it is to do. I suppose the hardest part is moving the cog,  after that it looks fairly easy to do. If I ever find someone that can weld I might give it a go.
Looking great.

Yes it looks easy .Regarding the cog that is very easy .The hardest thing is getting the chains right and making the 3 speed gearbox to fit in the correct postion and the cable to fit. Also getting the 3 speed gearbox as they are about £80.00 to buy ..and the one I am using is a brand new one .
Any way let me know when you want to start making one I will help you ...

Looks great as always Chas. What a brilliant mod. They should have made them like this. Does it make them much easier to pedal?

I am really looking forward to seeing it finished.

Are those a stack of pods that are next to it?  How many have you got?

If you lived nearer (or I had a bigger car)  I'd get a quote from you to add a 3 speed,  disc brake and second motor :)
Hopefully, I'll have a shed to work in soon though - it ain't easy doing stuff in the back yard.,

Regarding the 3 speed it is only to make it easier to peddle and it will be as this is my 4th 3 speed conversion .
