Post 1500 homebuilt trike project using Mustang and Jag rear ends...

Cut the bag braces off and the driveshaft tube flange.

cut the tube off on maybe a 35 degree angle in the middle of the belled out area.



Steel purchased and in the shop. 30 ft of 1 1/2 in x 1/8. want need 30 ft but he gave me a deal on it.

Already have the sheet steel in the shop. Fenders ordered form JC whitney and will be here in about 3 days. Will pick up the rear end tomorrow in chattanooga, 1996 mustang 273 ratio 5 lug.

Already spotted the wheels i want.



so everything should go pretty quick on this one, once i get the axles back.Should start lining everything up monday. we're on the way. hang on.

axles away. when they get back it's on. took 3.5 in from the left axle and 11.5 from the right axle. will make it with my wheel and tire combo about 55in's. unless i change my wheel combo again then maybe about 53" wheel base.



this looks real familiar to me.
