This reply is going to be for all three of you "Trike Builders" what an awesome job you guys have done (I know you are not quite done). Three distinct different builds. What more can a reader ask for. I took the time this morning to read all posts in all three types of build and again I have to say AWESOME



You all deserve the grandest hand of applause for work well done. You all about ready to do the final touches and from all of you now, please don't let this end here. After you get out and ride them, please return and give a final analysis of your projects.

Again, to the jobs well done and posted so well - congrats.

From an onlooker and reader

Spider Bob
Thanks Bob still got lots to do yet will post pictures as build progresses

the lower you get your rear end the better it will steer. i lowered my 1200 homebuild and it steers really easy. it will rake the front some. want need and easy steer on mine.

just do it and ask questions later. if you never start you\'ll never finish.

Really want to see how you mount the hand brake, good details.
Going to need one for mine.

Now the trikes bodies on,the garage seems to have shrunk

If its drytomorrow will push it out and do the body outside.

The swingarm/footboards on the trike move with the axle,hoping to mount a plate off the bolts to mount handbrake.A friend was breaking his sabaru impreza that he,d rolled he gave me handbrake & fittings,its small so should fit good.Will take some pictures

Perhaps this has already been asked (I read all the posts the other day but don't remember if I read this) but why did you stick with drum brakes?

Sure is looking good.
