here are some pictures of the trike im building, i've changed the front forks with one's that have brakes, which work very well. l also installed a rear drum brake, still needs a little welding. 20 x 3' kendal flame tires.
72 spoke rear wheels and the seat post has a 3' shock, very comfee. 36 tooth sproket. still lots of work to be done, when im finished i post more pics......
l put in the picture of the trike housing, cause it had to be widened out and 1 1/2 from each side, just to fit the bike frame.

l hope this inspires people on this forum to build a chopper trike, this will be the first with the engine in the front instead of the regular rear mount!!!!!!!!

hi; cycles u.s. sells the trike insert for 129 bucks and they sell the spacers so that mod is taken care. they have wheels, tires and forks. im going to go that route. occ are cheap here. so ill get another and put the two wide wheel/tire on it.

Would a shift kit work on a build like this? Ive been thinking of some strange stuff lately, and the trike kit from cycles u.s. looks like a good piece.

i got a lifan 70cc e/start for it. im freakin about gearing. the ratio calculator says--primary gear =14, axle gear=36, tire size=20", rpm=5000/ =121mph--does this mean i need a jack shaft? mitch

Most likely the motor has a 4:1 reduction built in. So divide by 4 and you get 30mph, which sounds about right with that setup.

I would love to see more pics of this build and the parts used.
Keep it up.
