for remaking/remodeling brake and clutch pedals on a Robin Reliant trike.
Have spoken to a few chaps on here some time ago but they seem to have left the site... Anyone have a contact looking for some work?

Does not need to be in the Manchester to Bolton area, but preferably within plus minus an hours drive from there abouts.

Also have a few other changes, nothing major, just moving the left side leg position of the gear lever to straight up above the gearbox in front of the seat... no biggie, bit of cutting and welding... 😉🤣

Hi JayDeeRed

I remembered someone near me, that could possibly do this for you. Engineering works in Huddersfield that work on custom motorcycles.

B&I Engineering
Hill Top Works, 16 Hill Top Road, Paddock, Huddersfield HD1 4SQ
Phone: 01484 511534
Facebook: https://m.facebook.com/RigidChoppers/

Not sure the distance is okay?

I've just spoke to them and they said they could possibly help you out, but would need more info.

They also said materials for manufacture are short at present.
They said you could send photos and plans to them, through the owners own email address. So you could get it designed and then wait for the manufacture, until the lockdown dust settles, and supplies stock back up.

Very small firm but experienced in this type of work.

Hope this helps you out 👍

Heya Bikabill
I tried to find relevant tinkers here but as people don't really advertise what they do I think I was going about things the wrong way, I've only started using the forum so I'm sure my request will gain the right response/advice now.

Heya JP
Damn right about the climate we live in... But people do surprise you in times of need too...

I know I ain't gonna get a knighthood like Captain Tom but as a health carer working on the front line, the clapping and cheering in my neighbourhood makes me feel really appreciated
👏🙏🤗
