how long is it?

recognise it from the 100% ad, with the 10k price tag

Im having horrible flashbacks to the Essex trikes I used to be around, pushrods back to another set of handlebars, and car seats everywhere.

front end doesnt look very happy in its new home LOL

Hi
the front end has to be filled back up yet and the seats are lowered so they blend in the handle bars are to be extended so no push rods needed as mentioned not finished yet.

oh I appreciate its obviously not finished, but one of the things I am wonderign about is the angle of dangle on the engine, was it like that in the car? once them forks or whatever front end you put on it, is up in the air, its going to be runnning uphill even more

wheres the oil pickup in the sump?

and just make sure you dont go over 4m long or it aint getting registered, that thing looks long. got to be a gnats cock away from 4m, if its not longer

the angle of the engine is how it sits in the car when the front suspension is pumped up, so that the pick up of the sump is at the back.
i have been onto the vosa website and it never mentioned a length restriction will have to get that one sorted thanks for pointing it out and thanks for all your comments even if brutal thats why i put it on the forum

go on the vosa website, and download the MSVA manual

http://www.dft.gov.uk/vosa/repositor...%202010%20.pdf

205 pages, but only about 1/2 of it is applicable to us, a lot is for bodied vehicles etc

I think you taking a very big step for a first trike build.

my comments were intended more as constructive LOL, I could be very brutal, but the internet isnt the place in my opinion, Im only harsh face to the face when it can be explained better, writing on a screen has no tone, no easily understood sarcasm or humour.

That, needs better forks.

And a better frame to attach them to.

Seriously.

I doubt that any bike forks would happily carry that motor, but I aint weighed the engine.

I suggest you do.

You may find you need a car tyre to carry it.

as I said in the PM check the MSVA manual, I would be surprised if the front tyre has sufficient load rating.

Yup it was teste by the manufacturer.

The 54H on this tyre shows the weight and speed the tyre is designed for.
54 equates to 212 Kg
H is 130 mph.

What's on yours?

Shaft drive bike.

Read up on gear ratios/wheel sizes and rear brake set ups.

Find suitable axle

Attach axle via the medium of a bolt on subframe.

Trike.

About as easy as it gets.

Here...

"Bolt on" V Max trike build
