Welcome Nelson....:D
Giz-a-clue !.......bike trike, car trike, engine size.....new triker? what have you ridden before.....?????.....enquiring minds need to know ! :)

NelsonsGoodeye 25-03-2010 12:37 PM

Hello mate...
 
The trike's a Susuki Intruder (1400cc). I rode bikes in my youth, when the law said you could ride anything up to 250cc on a provisional, so I didn't bother to sit my test. Then, a woman came along, followed by a house, and family, so "WE NEED A CAR" was the mantra from her, everyday 'till I bought one.
Now, house is nearly paid for, the wife is long gone, (thank Jeebus), so I fancied something different. (Male menopause, my current GF calls it). So, when the rain's hosing down, I'll be in the car. But when the sun shines....

Quick update on the trike....hardtail removed and chopped up, swingarm and shocks refitted. Rear frame completely remodeled.... Stuff still to do, new handlebars, rear mudguards to fit, electrics, road test, strip down to paint...rebuild! (pics to follow).

BTW, glad I uploaded those 3 pics here, I had a computer snafu recently and lost loads of stuff including those pics, which were the only ones I had before I started with the grinder!

NelsonsGoodeye 03-11-2010 02:18 PM

Hold-ups, hassles and SNAFU!
 
Are all trike builds like this, or is it just me? I'm getting there though....just in time for the first snows of winter!

It's always the way, mate - my Bandit's nearly ready to come apart for paint and powdercoat, just in time to stash it away for the rest of the Winter. :blink:

NelsonsGoodeye 24-12-2010 03:21 PM

Snow!

Then I can get me FINISHED trike down to the VOSA Station in Darlo...

NelsonsGoodeye 01-02-2011 12:28 AM

Overdue and over budget, but finally road legal...
