This is my homebuilt trike.

Powered by a Honda GX-31 4 stroke, it will go 29 MPH.

Unusual, is the universal joint between the handlebars and the head.

I can steer with my feet and move the handlebars around for rear-view adjustment.

Also, lifting the handlebars allows for ease of getting on/off.

That is ...

Awesome !! Very cool. and 29mph for a 31cc motor? That is hauling for sure. What is the total weight of that setup? Since you are such a low profile, you may consider getting a flag for that bike. Enjoy the ride....:D

Thanks,

It is pretty light. I can lift it easily. Perhaps 35 pounds wet?

Incumbents have less wind resistance and can go faster than uprights.

Dude you're awesome!. Great to have somebody so creative visit our forums.
What kind of drive train does that trike have. I'm assuming its chain driven with centrifugal clutch but cant tell from the pic or video. Very interesting to see that its front wheel pedal powered too. Very nice, you must be the envy of the neighborhood.

This photo shows the friction drive. I modified the knurled surface to grooves.

Very little tire scrapping.


Notice the throttle on the left. Not on the handlebars.
