what do you mean?the shaft comes down from drive at a small drop,and it only runs off centre by an inch,i have not even had to move reverse solanoid from its origanal place,thats how much the shaft runs off line.:praying:

The rear should be in a straight line with the drive shaft or out put shaft. A drive shaft should only be at one angle. not two. with two angles you will always have problems with u-joints and vibrations.It would be some work to change it now,but you will be a lot happier down the road.best of luck with you trike project.i plan to build one myself.

Im talking about the off set to the right side,not pinion angle,thats a whole different thing that you need to get set right also.

mounting the shocks on the original bike mounts looks like itallows to much unsprung and unsupported gap from the wheels,which will cause alot offlex.The 1500 produces alot of torque and traction from the car wheels.Wouldnthaving them mounted with the swingingarm mounts nearer the wheelsabsorb bumps/hold the road better?.

This is mine in its early stages.

:claps:this has put the shocks 8 inches wider each side,it also will allows them to be inside the side boxes,not sure if to put them in front or behind the axle.

I definitely see an issue with the driveshaft. The output shaft exits the transmission on the right side, and you put the differential in the center. Notice how big al59 has his to the right of center, so it lines up with the transmission output shaft?

BTW, do they not have trike kits in the UK? Most everbody in the U.S. uses a prebuilt kit that you just bolt together, with all the problems already solved.

I know how much intense work you have taken on, so I appreciate the build. However,and I'm just askin, isn't the differential awful long? My Motortrike is about a third shorter than the one pictured? It will be impossible to flip over, that's for sure! Nice welding also sir. I wish my welding was that nice! I used to weld alot, but now my skills have diminished over the years. Keep em coming! I love watching the builds. jimsjinx
