I think you've done a great job. Look forward to a view from the rear asB...& D... has said.

I do have a question though. The color looks green to me. IAM truly color blind but is wedgewood blue a green? Just trying to figure out the actual color.

Do you have photos of the build? I have seen a couple of threadswhere trikes were being home built. Was yours one of them?

it is base dark blue with a lot of gold peral which makes it look green until you start walking around it and depending on the sun angle times pie but yea it looks green most of the time. i have lot of build pics just have to figure how to put um on all at once. and yes i have another thread "lets put an 84 1200 on an 85" has a lot of info on this build. this is not a kit i hand formed all the body from flat sheet steel and built the suspension from scratch. and when i say hand formed i mean a hammer and a dollie and and the floor and some tin snips. i don't own an english wheel or a planishing hammer i wish.

the wheels are american racing. 60 bucks for the pair out of a salvage yard. they are 8" inches wide the fenders made them look bigger. harley e glide muffler some body told me it sounded like a vw now. oh well i've heard worse. they are basicly the same engine. actual working on the bike about 2 month but from buying it and getting to this point about 3 months total and until the last 2 weeks it was 4 to 6 hr days. the last 2 weeks where more like 10 and 12 hr days. all told i have about a grand in the whole deal. crazy ain't it. but lots of sweat equity. this is what i started with. 300 bucks engine was no good so i found a replacement for 250. what a deal what a buy. sold the stuff i wasn't going to use for 700 so i'm already up 150 to the good.

the beginning seems like a long time ago in a galaxie far far away. stripped and ready. i was mocking up the center for the rear. i ended up using a mustang rear that i had shortened and resplined at moser engineering for 125. i shortened the tubes myself.therearend in this pic wasn't left on the trike.

most people have wondered how to mate the final drive to the trans. i used the mustang driveshaft for the rearend and the honda driveshaft to the trans via a collar i had water jetted at a local shop for 20 bucks this and the axlesare the only things i didn't make myself. the collar slips in the ford shaft and the honda shaft slides into the collar centering itself as it was driven in. this was the easiest thing i did. the collar in the pic was one that he first cut too big. the original spring holds tension on the yoke just like it did on the bike. i am available by the way if you want to pay to get your bike triked. and it want be 8000. and it want be a fiberglass body it will be all steel and want be any heavier than the glass. but the build time will be a while.:D
