Beach Raider & Sidewinder Plans

The plans are intended to give the user an idea of a basic trike design. The plans are not to scale. They were drawn in TurboCad and saved as a PDF file. The components are ones that I use in my trikes and have good success with them. I use new components on all my trikes. My trikes have travelled hundreds of kilometers without any frame failures (I am 6' x 175lbs.) My frames are elecrically welded.

There are several components that require accurate machining.

The Sidewinder plans include a seat and can be modified to fit the Beach Raider. You can fabricate a seat from tubing and cover with mesh or seat belt material or construct one from fiberglass.

Take the dimentions from the plans and lay them out on cardboard or a suitable surface. This will give you an idea how the trike frame will look once finished. You can also decide on gearing and chain management.
