CUSTOM ADAPTATION PURPOSE: To provide a child with short stature with a tricycle. The project began with a standard child's 12-inch bicycle. To create the required frame size, the frame sections were cut apart and the seat tube was shortened. The pieces were then realigned and welded back together. The pedal crank was shortened and new holes were drilled to mount the pedals. A custom-made tricycle adapter was made to replace the single rear wheel with two wheels, widely spaced. Smaller handlebars and brake levers were made and the front caliper and rear disk brakes were adjusted accordingly. The seat was replaced with one better suited to the child's needs. COLOR: The frame was painted red. TITLE: Supporting Early Intervention. JOURNAL: TAD Journal. REF: Volume 26, Number 3, October 2006. PAGES: 19. Number of pages: 2 (including cover). 2006.
