Think of a spring as a torsion bar. The longer it is the easier it is to twist. Same goes for coil springs. If you shorten it, it will become stiffer, but will affect any preload/ride height.

The more I see this thing the more I like it... I would so love to have it in my collection... great find... the Munster trike would be a hoot to drive, I bet it gets a ton of double takes.

Edit: "Thing" wasn't meant disrespectful...

Thing.. may be more descriptive and fitting for this sweet baby than Trike.I hope this inspires the next generation some.I really feel we don't see rolling art much anymore its not as sexy power/speed thats usually where EXTRA $ goes and I get that, but Im hoping for a fun revival before I leave this world. I have seen enough skulls on bikes in my life. Thanks for enjoying my project and Keep on Trucking everyone !

Long time no post here. Just thought i would check in.

I do like the stance of that trike. I would sport that around town.
The shovel looks sweet also.
