With gas prices going as high as they are and problems off and on with the falcon I decided it was about time to resurrect the trike. I figured it would be a lot harder than it was because it hasn't even been started in months since Dale and Dwight were here the last time. One small motorcycle battery was never enough to start it so a couple of years ago I added a second small motorcycle battery to help out because there wasn't room for a larger battery within the frame area. Now motorcycle batteries are real bad about not lasting too long and both of the old ones were dead. They are also not good at being revived with the Epsom salt solution like I used on the golf cart batteries for my off grid needs. I had a car battery that I haven't doctored yet and it wouldn't start a car during cold weather so I decided to use it on the trike because it will start it fine. I lost my storage rack in the process though so will have to come up with some other place to haul cargo. I may build another small trailer to tow behind the trike? As with the falcon this desert is really taking its toll with the trike even with it never being ridden. BTW... John Wells calls it a Mad Max styled trike. What do you think???
