I am a Newbie here,

I found this area through some channels/links.
I just thought I would share my build with everyone. I love three wheelers and I am working on my 2nd build. The first build went well, I called it RQT after my kids. I did not do a whole lot of research on suspensions, COG, steering...and other things. So I set out to do a little more research and with the advice of a few others this is what I have come up with.

I also have a yahoo group at.

I am not a welder at all but I am learning everytime I do something. I work out in the back yard and I dont have alot of tools or room so be easy on me but I always enjoy constructive feedback.http://community.webshots.com/photo/550765767/2106584410074500364SiWoNi

Thanks for the forum,

Thanks and yes it does suck. I have to put everything inside Lo-T3Ks chassis and cover it up. I hate it when it storms.

I am going to have a jack shaft in the rear so there will be 2 chains. One chain will be just as long as a normal motorcycle chain and the other will be much shorter.

Thanks again.

Todd

Todd,
Welcome to the site. Looks like you are doing some great work on your trike.
Here is a photo of a trike that was at the GNSR, BMW powered.

Hi Todd

Nice project built under less than ideal conditions. Helps the rest of us that have shops how good it is not to work out side.

How long have you been building it?

Thank you, I have a teepee I made out of spare steel and I throw a tarp over it to keep the sun off of me. As the day goes on I move it around me, I will some day have a shop with work benches!

I have less than 60 build hours in it so far. I still have to finish up the rear suspension, seat area and other small things. I will have between 70 and 80 hours total to make it drivable and fully functional.

Then on to the tweeking and body.


Thanks again for looking and the comments.


Seeya!
Todd
