Default Olds Trike

Thought I'd post a few pics of my homebuilt trike.

Thanks. The forks are temporary. It was designed for girders which I am presently making and hopefully, they should be fitted this winter.

This is my first trike build and I must admit that I'm rather pleased with the way things turned out. It's not a 'show trike' with fancy paint or trick parts but that's not what I wanted.

In answer to a couple of questions.
Yes, it is all home built. From bending the frame tube, to signwriting the tank and that includes, making the pickup bed, tailgate and rear fuel tank etc. which are steel.
Yes the tank mounted gear change works fine. I modified the gearbox, to incorporate a separate reverse lever mounted on the box.
