my son-in-law and I just got off the phone with Roland from Spooky Tooth and we are gonna make the first (that we know of) motorized chopper trike will give details as we go :)
gonna try to use a jackshaft from a grubee stage 1 4cyl kit it's gonna be a challenge...everyone says "you can't do that" but we are gonna try

I have a customer in Birmingham who is having me install a 35cc GEBE on a trike, my first front wheel installation. I'm pretty sure this is the one he chose (with some adaptation on the front wheel size):

There are about 30 different tricycles shown on their website, including ice cream vending types.

I'll also take before/after pix when its finished.........

Nirve Deviate Chopper

The Nirve choppers make great motorized bikes, it's just a feat of engineering to get them together. Let me know how you do it. I built a Switchblade chopper and it looks pretty good.

Some of the things I did with my bike might work with yours, but the frame is very different, so I'm looking forward to seeing how you get everything together. Just don't try to make a copper exhaust like I did. It looked like an easy way to do it. The final exhaust I built was made from brass showerhead extensions from Ace Hardware, sawed into sections and welded back together.
