Siwmae Henry,Many thanks for this. You're one of the trailblazers on the Python list to whom I always listen carefully. You've just saved me a heap of work!
Clearly, what I need to do, to satisfy MY list of prefered characteristics, is just to build a quick-n-dirty simple trike back end, without leaning capability (I can come back to that when I can ride the two-wheel set-up) and get on the road with it.
Because I've already built in to my Python Jurgen's original design for a simple rear-suspension, I want to keep that, and I think I have a way to do it in spite of the extra torquing shock loads that two rear contact patches, hitting bumps independently, will put on the swinging-arm pivot. I'll show that to the list visually as soon as I have my photo and vid facility set up here.
You have to give me a bit of time to catch up, listees. I was born before the existence of hold-in-the-hand mini computers; when I was a kid computers that could do less than your on-board camera computer can do now required several clean-rooms and a team of human attendants; so I'm still catching up with the things that you younger guys do in your sleep! Doing everything on a cash shoe-string, and on one strand of a personal-energy shoestring slows things down a bit too. But still, this whole Python thing is such a great buzz that I'll get there eventually -- said the ancient snail. I'll post a complete photo record of progress soon.
Again, lots of thanks for all the material help from all the listees.
