    The Trikester is being re-done, B&S engine, 3.5 HP, 127cc, (4 stroke) 60T sprocket, CA DMV says 3 wheels = class C license. I will carry a 12 volt garage door battery for the Chinese quad lights with flasher, and maybe I'll add directional? Anything is for sale IF the price is right...
    TriPod will be the next build, again Ca. DMV legal, no electric this time I'll add another B&S 550 127cc 3.5HP.
    Will look a little drift trike???

    I like the look of that second one, handle bars seem a little far away buy might be how I'm looking at it.

    Where did the frame come from?

    Yo Frankie, I designed, cut fit the 6061-T6 aluminum and then aerospace welder finished.
    Seat is adjustable, can you see the 1/4 holes in the 1"sq x .120 wall, I am 5'10".

    Nice, I'm 5'6, the only, and I mean only, thing about the trike is it's very low sitting, on my bike I sit as high as I do in my explorer, which ends up being higher than many plain ol' cars. I often find myself looking right over most of the Puerto Rican low riders around here. Standing on my pedals I can just about see over the roof of my truck. I couldn't stand on a trike, at least I don't think I could. When I work on my trike set up I'm going to definitely raise my height.

    Next up will be to finish the gScooter, with the trike just about finished, and the engine cover soon to be off my work table, the gScooter will go back on the table for some fork adjustment, just a little to low for foot power, which now the Ca, DMV says is optional, damn them. The jocky shift Honda 80cc engine scares me a little.

    Quite the filter on that 80cc, what hp do you get from that thing?

    Nice touch with the piston shift knob.

    Yo Frankie, I have no idea what the HP is, and with the semi auto trans? I took it from a Fast 50's pit bike and it was doing wheel stands in 2nd gear and at my age that is a no-no, takes to long for the body to heal if something goes wrong. The engine needs lots of air and high octane fuel, the air breather is from a big block Chevy valve cover with a little changing to the diameter for the carb. Have fun :>)

    Some of the build...and Ca. DMV states that 3 wheels can only have a regular drivers license, and with scooters no DMV fees or plate required.
