yes they do sell kits in the uk,but not all of us can afford them.as for the drive the angle is not as bad as it looks,i have looked at a lot of trikes at shows,and from some of the kits that people supply,and not all diffs are to one side,a u,j is desinged so run at an angle,not to steep but an angle,one of a common kits here use a ford serria diff and independent set up,the diff is centrel on most of the kits,if you have looked at some of the drives on here you will see more of an angle than mine,thanks for your input,will keep on and see how it works.

Thank you for sharing the photos . Your new pivot points on the swingarm are interesting to me . No hassle with the drivewshaft that way I am guessing . I hope your still making progress . Hope to see more as work progresses.

Hi Ade relocating the shock mounts out towards the wheels will def pay dividends handling in the twisties and handling our pothole strewn roads.

Havin the diff set 2" offset towards engine driveline will work ok,alot of builders have the diff centre.56" isnt that wide,mines 54" to outside with zero offset rims.

Watchin your build progressin is interestin readin,i would havedone my own axle and chassis build if i had the workshop and welding skills.
