Default Need somewhere for propshaft and rough cost

I'm trying to build my first trike I'm using a VS700 intruder and a morris minor rear axle does anyone know anywhere in and around the Durham area that can do one and roughly how much I should expect to pay . I'm on a low income so having to save for everything so knowing how much I'll have to save up is a great bonus.

At a streach you can adapt existing prop shafts if you can find 2 ends that match the gearbox and axle that you have then crefully weld them together sleeving as appropriate to get everything in line and right length. I did one for my landrover pto, it seems viration free so possibly luckily got the thing balanced by luck, but would think you would normally expect to spend a bit of time tuning out the balancing issue to get rid of vibration. Obviously it is quite inportant that everything stays in line which means taking time to sleeve things up first and also thinking about the welding order to minimalise heat distortion.
I think I heard the last custom prop someone ordered was in the region of 60 - 70 for one to suit a landrover 6 pot.
