oooooh, surely it is not all that bad.

I replied to your problem in another post before I found this one.

Hello and Welcome skip . Sorry you had problems with your first posting . I am not good at posting pictures so I wont offer any advice on that issue . I think AZgl1500 can point you in the correct process .



Was that your bike ? It looks bad . I hope you were not hurt seriously . If the head stock is not warped it should be a good trike foundation . Good luck with it .

OK, fell better now & need to kill some time.
Sorry for the earlier comment.
As I tried to write earlier, I'm in the planning / gathering parts stage to build a IRS Trike.
I own a 89/90 Blue/Green GL1500/6, & just finished repairing a 93 GL1500A.
I'm also a little craze about building things. My 1st post gave link to WebShot picture.
Sorry forgot the lik in 1st post.
http://community.webshots.com/user/skip20
MY PLAN!
Got a IRS rear end assy from a 1995 & 2000 Miata. About $250.00 each.
Just got a 93 GL1500 SE off eBay for $510.00, Picked up yesterday. Will be replace the tree & forks, run good.
Picking up 4 - 16"x8 American Racing 4x100 aluminum wheels covered with good Pirelli 245/45/16 tires. Came off Craig List Local $225.00. This will gave me rims for Trike & Trailer.
I have the metal, laying around & a Mig welder to play with.
Will build a Custom built fiberglass rear body shell. Will be making a mold for it to sell.
Hope to write a CD on "DIY YOUR GL1500 to TRIKE"
This will be a bolt-on assy with no mods to the stock frame.
Plan to post pictures here as the build gets going, but may be slow due to other project as my Bradley GTII Custom.
Any and all commits, ideas, info or screw ups are welcomed.
Most pictures will be posted but no measurements as I hope to maybe sell the CD.
Plan on selling my 89/90 Goldwing to help pay for this.
If it doesn't sell, then the kit will be install on it & will sell the parts of the 93 SE
Looks like I may need to get new camera as I'm getting some fog in the pictures

You sure got a lot of enthusiasm there.

The camera seems to be shooting with the lens to wide open, makes for a very shallow depth of field.

If it is auto-flash, turn the flash on All The Time, that will make it use smaller iris settings. Gives you a much sharper picture, better depth of field.

I think the camera fell off the work bench to many times, the force doesn't seem to work to well any longer.
Thank you for the info & will try, however the flash was on for all of these picture due to being in the (car) motorcycle port.

There are a few IRS setups out there.
Two thing, Cars swing on an angle (camber), Trike swing straight up/down.
The rear gearing on the miata is 4.1 - 1, as the bike is 2.9 - 1.
I think you played with the gearing the axle also.
I have built a few 3 wheel car/bike before, but never trike a bike before.
Check my webshot site for the Rakoons"

i ended up running a 2.73 to 1 but i could have used a 2.43 i was running 3000 at 65 mph in 5th. it would spin the tires in first if you wanted to. the 4.1 is way low but you may have better luck finding a ringgear and pinion for the miata. that's the reason i opted for the mustang plentiful and the right gearing is easy to find and the disk brakesare a must.
