Looks great. A trike is the only way I'd not drive a car.
How did your prized chalice do?

Dary's tank!

This guy is one of my best friends and has his shop in my old warehouse next door to my shop. I watch him build trikes day and night. I took many of the pictures.

I don't have one but am addicted to excellent fabricators. But here, even my Volt hates the cold.

Glad the tank is ok.

Thanks guys ,..it's been a real learning curve for me on this project ,.. Body work , painting , major retrofitting of parts and pieces from different year bikes etc etc
Hank re your question about the chalices,... The Martians were the victims ,... I've only successfully been able to keep one for about a year and a half before they've succumbed to something or another ,..as beautiful as they are they may be just too much for me to understand and handle them successfully at this point ,... Maybe some of you real pros could figure it all out but I just don't know,... Other chalices are going strong though,... They are delicate !!

Yeah, chalices are odd. I have a chalice frag sitting in the tank now as my first try at it. Odd little coral.

Some are very, very easy and some seem almost impossible to get to grow in my case.

Yep, monti caps are the weeds of the sps world. I have a monti confusa that's also extremely easy, and "weed-like".
It looks bland in the pics, but it's got bright green and purple tips on those peaks and a purple rim-

My piece-


And the one in the gym tank to show how interesting the growth pattern-

The last picture looks like a miniature " moonscape " for a science fiction film,.... I guess what is "weeds" to some is a garden to others .
A rather tough weekend on this side of my world as my long term girl friend had to put her aging dog to sleep that she's had for 15 + years ,..needless to say it was a very tear filled couple of days for everyone evolved .

I'm sorry to hear that. Losing one of our family members capable of unconditional love is not easy. My condolences.
