Hi I live in Ireland and my husband is changing a 1983 goldwing 1100 into a trike what axel would be the best to use and if you have any other information that would help thanks
Thanks will look into that 👍There isnt, the common UK rear axle would be a Reliant Robin or Regal, dont forget to get the propshaft for the driveshaft.
A Mk 2 ford escort can be used but its a bit wide , narrowing the casing is not too difficult but shortening the half shafts is not easy
Thanks very much will keep that in mindI am in Gloucester UK and had to rebuild my mates 1200 trike with reliant rear end and am working on his 1500 trike with narrowed ford rear end, we also had a 1000 witj some japanese irs rear end we re commisioned and tested before passing it on.
If i can help in any way please ask as there are several pitfalls for the unaware
Thank you so much your a great helpRear wheels VW golf or polo 14 inch with 175/65 tyres run at 26psi to get a "compliant" ride.
Front tyre needs to be a square profile (Avon sm or sidecar) and steering is better with raked yokes(trees to the US members!)
