decide first what role it will have, that helps the next step, what type and power level engine you'll use. lots of the design and parts will be specific to putting that engine on it. there's a few trike threads here may give some inspiration

80cc MOTOR
Hi Step,. I recently put together an eBay trike. I found a lot of good information in this trike forum. I also went through the photo gallery. I was concerned about the high center of gravity of the trike. I was able to tuck a China girl between and under the rear stays and just ahead of the rear axle. Just food for thought. Wish you well with your build.

That is a 66 or 80 cc engine sometimes called a "happy time" sometimes called a "ht" sometimes a "China girl" sometimes a "cg". It's all just lingo. I bought mine at bicycle-engines.com. I have bought three engines there and have been happy. Looking forward to following your build.

It was a wild machine before I lowered the seat and stretched the frame. There is a nearly complete 24" next grafted to it. I am looking forward to Step's build. I studied on this for a couple months.
