measure from rim to swing arm at fromt of rear wheel assy. and lets say its 6 inches on the left side and 6 and a half inches on the right then the center is haftway between those numbers, you can set a plumb bob there or something to measure to, good luck Mel

i am in the middle of a vw trike build, i put 2 sockets the same width as the vw transaxle on the floor then dropped a plumb bob from the steering neck, measured from the bob to the sockets, when the distance was the same i drew a line across to check for the placement, started over since i was 2" behind where the axle needed to be, finally got it right
