    I have a Honda gxh50 on a staton 18:75 to 1 reduction box. All this is attached to a delta trike, I built myself. I've been driving this for years on an almost daily basis. The Staton reduction is almost bullet-proof. (I say almost because, I haven't actually tried to shoot it with a bullet) But, I have ran it for maybe 7 years. This is the 3rd engine I've put on it. The first engine was a 1.6HP subaru. Then a Honda Gxh50. And now, just today, a new Honda Gxh50. The Honda engines are superb.

    Welcome to MBc, Larry. Now that you have introduced yourself, be sure to read all you can, including the 'Stickies' at the top of every Forum. They contain a lot of information. For example, ‘Sticky’ by Al.Fisherman has 20 or so links to “How To…” threads, and important pages for you to follow. ‘Sticky’ by Anton "Forum Rules and Infractions” is a must read about how you are expected to Conduct yourself. However, read all of them, and be sure to use the search feature. Almost every question you might have has already been asked and answered someplace here. If you are still stumped with a certain problem, post your question in the proper Forum and I am sure you will get an answer. Good Luck to you.

    Btw, Larry...I have the same basic setup. I'm driving one of the heaviest Delta trikes (a Trailmate Meteor) with an R/S035, w/Staton 18.75:1 gearbox, and switch between a 13 tooth and 18 tooth takeoff gear for the gearbox. I have never regretted it from the say I put it on. [Dave has a picture of it in his gallery titled something like, 'one of the few'.

    I have gone back to the 20" X 3" rear tires. But, I don't think you will ever regret doing business with Dave Staton, or any of the advise he might give you.

    Welcome to the forum. There are plenty of neighborhoods around Houston where you could find out for sure if it is bullet proof.
