maybe. will check it out and see. Haven't traveled too far from home since all the stuff that I've went through but will look into it. Just don't have the stamina i use to have for some reason. maybe just cause i'm getting older.

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

Body on the 90c and the hard part started. will have to do some mods and glassing to make this one fit around the suzuki side covers and seat. quite a bit different.

Fitment almost done. had to fill the spot behind the seat and in between the tour pac. not a big deal but time consuming. also molded in a place to put your feet. doesn't look like much now but it will. Will start the finish work next week and maybe paint it. Want be long now.

I had to add and aftermarket master cylinder on this one. stock master just wasn't big enough to get me any brakes at all. so I went with one for a dune buggy. mount was easy to make and it works great. Remember when your doing this, the disks for cars have a booster on them so no booster on a trike just leg power. but it stops it much better than a stock master on the 1500 when unlinked. the brakes are not linked on this one so you do get a little nose dive. sorry about the poor quality of the pic but it was my cell phone camera.

Things changed fast here, the forum is now on a cloud server and prior to that the forum was sold to Motorcycle.com.
Glad to see you here and I like the black trike in your avatar.

As Val said,
the forum has been moving fast, that is, we have been jumping to new servers over the years as we got bigger, and need more space, and more speed.


Also, a huge amount of the pictures were lost in the very first server move about 6 years ago.... we all felt really bad about that, but nothing could be done with it.


then about six months ago, PhotoBucket decided that their pictures were "private' to them, unless we paid them $400/year per person who has an account with PhotoBucket. so, we lost 1,000s more pictures as none of us will pay them to keep our accounts live.


I have switched over to only keep pictures on the Gallery here, or on www.Imgur.com which is a terrific forum friendly image host.

Are there any pictures of the framing? I have a '98 1500 and am thinking of making it a
trike.

The original poster hasn't been on since 5-28-2018, you may want to send a PM to skoto1 and hopefully he'll respond. This forum lost many images as things changed.
