this diff is 3:1 , and i think the bike was 2:9, ive had it moveing , by putting the bike on stands and letting the clutch out all seem fine , im not tolaly happy with the propshaft , think i will do as i did with the other trikes , i drilled the hardy splicer that goes on the engine and taped it to a 8mm and used a grub screw.









sorry it's a bad picture , i took 5 (bad light) and this is the best one

hi skip , what did you mean , when you said you would box the lower shock bar ?, all ideas are welcome, i got some fibre glass mudguards off ebay , and i spent all afternoon getting them on







it frame is under neeth the mudguard i will fibreglass the frame to the bottom of the mudguard , when it's all painted



this is the mudguard on , not sure if i like it ,? may have to trim it ?

these mudguards are 12" wide so the gap in between the pannier and the mudguards is around 4" the door still opens , i would be useable

Yes it 2.93:1
By the way, I like that BIG garage you have.
Are you sure the trike will fit after you put the tires on?
What I did was moved the diff. over a little more in line with the driveshaft, then shorten the axle.
The shock mount don't look very strong to take a good pot hole with all of those hoses in them.

you right to laugh about the size of the garage , its a hut in my back garden , we have been having a lot of snow here in the north east of england , but last week end was nice , so i thought i would push it outside in the small amount of sun ,!

only to relise it will not come through the door way it's 6" too wide , ha ha ,

not to worry it has to come apart to be painted , and then put back together properly, , yes i think your right i could take another piece of angle turn it upside down and weld it to the bottom shock brace , this would make a box shaped tube, good idea

Good way to shorten the axle.
You could us angle iron to help suppot axle as you weld it

sorry about that , the last pic was a bit big , heres one with the pannier back on






to get the box back on i have had to cut out the back , thinking of resealing the back when the build is complete,





LARGER Pictures are better.

Yeah, Barry, you need to size the pictures to about 640x480 at a minimum so that we can see the detail.

Optimal size is 800x600 to fit the PC monitors that most folks have.

Larger than 800 pixels wide will overlap the screens for a lot of folks.
