Nice project. You are right it is definitely not a Goldwing!

Just an update.
Finished in 7 weeks.

Trike running & stopping great.
Ready for a road trip!
Anyone who see's it, say it looks Bad Ass.



The Trike is 11.5' & 68" wide at the rear tires.
Pretty close to the GTII rear to front wheel.



The little Yoke is ready for his ride.

I love the look of it without the bodywork, but it would need a place to carry stuff to work for me. I have always wanted a VW trike, ever since Ed "Big Daddy Rat" Roth came up with the idea. I have always liked VWs, have owned 3 bugs, and built a couple of engines. But I have no way of building a complete trike. They do come up for sale around here once in a while, but they cost more than a new car. Best of luck with it.
