You don't want the hassle of building that, give it to me and save yourself...

OK, had a bit of time on it now,starting to take shape.
Mounted the seat, extra ribs, changed bars, de rusted and cleaned up.
Have been having a bit of fun doing the forwards, had to bolt them to the engine as there is no frame down there, luckily there is a sleeve at the front of the engine that goes across the width of it so managed to get a bit of M12 threaded stainless rod in that picks up the forwards, making up the brake and gear change levers now. So good to have a project to get me teeth into, was getting a bit bored after I finished the trike.
Will keep you posted as it goes

Well done a bit more !
Got the fowards finished, rear mudguard and rear brake tie bar .
Having trouble getting the exhaust downpipes off, got the nuts off but can,t get the ally collars off, have been putting wd40 all over it each day for a couple of weeks but still no joy.
Anyone got any ideas

Have you tried putting a long socket or other stout tube over the studs and whacking it with a hammer? The idea being to crack the corrosion by driving the collar towards the head.
