    Wow! This sucker should fly!!!:bowdown:

    Disc brakes front and rear?

    Are you modifying the trike for independent rear suspension to lean into the corners?:detective:

    if you look to the right of frame there is a sprocket on a freewheel that will run to front hooking to pedal shaft up in corner

    hi, i used the 34 , so far it is working in the build great (fitting that is) the calipers i bought of ebay fit the space on shaft perfect with the pillow block bearing in place.
    i will post a couple of more pics later.

    trike is up and running. All systems work great. I did an over kill on the disc brakes. could have got away with 6 inch rotors instead of the ten inch ones . i have to be very carfull when hitting the brakes. I also have to change the gearing as it tops out to quick at 48 mph and 7200 rpms. Blast to ride, so far ive put 200 miles with just having to do carb adjustments. Oh the the bikes pedals work great, pretty easy to pedal and tops out just above walking speed lol.

    Looks good. Don't let anyone "official" see you going over 40. It would be a bummer if they told you that you can't ride it.
