Hello, welcome to David Bruce Trikes webpage. This site showcases our hand crafted Front Wheel Drive Recumbent Tricycle! The FWD design features a compact driveline with a center frame mounted internal differential and dual independent front suspension damping system. A modular construction design allows for easy separation of the front and rear frames for easy transportation in smaller vehicles. The modular design also allows future upgrades and modifications to enhance the enjoyment of your FWD tricycle!

We have divided the site detailing the trials and tribulations of creating a custom FWD recumbent tricycle from the early days to the most recent rides and a hint of what's to come!

May 2014 Blue Trike Prototype with Direct Steer Modification.

We created a more conventional rear frame design and it's currently mounted on the Blue prototype to test the frame and sub frame as well. The sub frame is intended as a bolt on item to allow a rear fender and mounting point for aftermarket head rests and still not quite 'perfect' yet!

Our new rear frame and subframe with accessory mounts. This currently is a bolt on unit, next gen frames might just have the tubes welded  together.

You can follow all progress on the new DBT4's under construction with the "DBT4" link above. July's 2014's update is up with some pictures from a recent ride. We've been busy working on new stuff and a "race trike" test bed to answer some engineering questions relating to aero drag and power requirements.

Visit the page links for more information on the FWD concept, prototypes and see what's coming next!
