chain drive through a.......
 
i've seen a pic somewhere of a chain driven trike that used a hub and diff/bevel box off a shaft driven rear wheel to convert it to shaft for the rear axle
and for the life of me i cant find it again,
does anyone know of this trike? i'd like to see more pic's off it

My 900R uses a short chain to a VT500 bevel box with a sprocket on it. :)

spot on mick :thumbsu:

Make me an offer and specify what bits you want for the money, Ideally I'd like to retain the Uj and driveshaft but might be open to the idea of slicing the driveshaft in half. I am in Mid Wales near Llanidles/ Newtown, not far off the A470 but could drop things off en route in laws possibly, maybe meet on a service station. I do have ther bike bits to drag down that end of the world too.

GavinS 17-12-2010 10:03 PM

Well I ain't got no transport at the mo
 
And it ain't my trike,I'll probly look round the local breakers first,but I'll keep you in mind.Cheers!

Cheers, Mick.:thumbu:

how did you tension the belt/chain? a separate tensioner?

biggus mickus 30-12-2010 03:26 PM

How I tensioned the drive belt.

The bevel box was mounted to the original rear wheel spindle so the original tensioners could be used. The bevel box torque arm (for want of a better description) was bolted to a crossmember on the swingarm and had slots for the bolts. This in conjunction with the splined coupling between prop shaft and bevel box allowed the box to be adjusted backwards/forwards as required.
Fortunately toothed belts don't really stretch like chains, so no actual adjustment was required after the initial build. If I was doing the same thing again, I would still incorporate some sort of sliding joint on the prop shaft to take up any adjustment of the bevel box position.
Sorry, I don't really have any more pics of it.

Cheers, Mick.:thumbu:

Just found this one.
