Your triumphs are wetting my tonsiles. Wifes nagging me about drewling over the furniture.

And i like the trike , however are you making a hard tail or have you used the swing arm , if you have used the swing arm could you post a pic of how you've done it, looking for ideas , can't wait to see it finished . Looks the mutts.

Hello chris,we cut the entire back end off from the swingarm pivot then bent two huge `U`s `from steel and welded them on as in the pic.Hope that helps mate.

She may be up for sale when finished.I`m enjoying the education of trike building so I wanna do another one,possibly a swingarm job but need to work out the correct strengthening/gusseting points for a safe job.Looking at Kwak Eliminators for the donor bike.
