Default Reverse Trike Build?

I was thinking about building a reverse trike because i don't really want a go-kart. i have a basic frame shape drawn up and a materials list. i was just wondering has anybody tried before? because i wouldn't mind some help telling me what will and wont work. i was thinking about using 14" motorbike wheels if i can get my hands on some, is this a good choice? it will be rear wheel drive and just a normal go kart style steering rack at the front any suggestions? pros and cons?

thanks

Have a look at T-mans reverse trike build. You should get some ideas from that
