Hi all

Well after all the great advice from members of this site the Python rear suspended axle was a failure , I don't think suspending both wheels from one pivot/spring really gains much except a weight gain [ the trike and not me ] and lots of work !

So after some more thinking I wondered if sliding kingpin ala Morgan 3/4 wheelers may be a better way to go ?

As the Python is a delta there are no steering problems with this suspension , I assume it can be both light and compact ?

So out with the trusty Lego I can see I will need some sort of anti rotation device hence the scissor link.
Hoping pillar could be a 12mm or similar bolt and the springs maybe die springs ? or similar ?
Lego also shows it will need some preload...

Any ideas ?

Sorry purely grinder/weld/swear engineering nothing lathe'd etc

regards Paul
