Got it all done this morning. Took it for a spin and did some wheelies !
Then the jackshaft bearings grenaded. Hopefully they were defects. I have also removed the governor as it was effecting throttle response really badly. So if I can find some bearings tomorrow it will be back up and running again.
I really like it, i've always wanted one of those. Like the key switch, if and only if u decide that the crotch area wasn't a good idea for that key box. I do make 80's style atc key switch pads. Not trying to sell u anything but the option is available for a top clamp style key switch.
Anyway keep up the good work.
pics just to show you, can/will delete this post, if not appropriate im really not a salesman/just my hobby.
New bearings are installed already. Now tearing the rear end apart to make way for a much needed disc brake conversion. The drum brakes wouldn’t stop at all. Like you could push it by hand when BOTH brake levers were pulled !
I found a 6” brake rotor from gopowersports in Texas that should work really well. I have to use a 3/4” to 1” adapter but it will still be ok.
and the brakes work great and it wheelies on command also. We cruised it all over town the other day. Hahaha and I got my foot and ankle stuck under it. Everytime I build something and test it I get hurt somehow. Figures.
I just recently acquired 3 similar trikes all in rough shape. I kept the two with the fiberglass seat buckets and gave the third to my brother for doing the swap and transport for me. They all have the differentials intact, one had a factory spring front end like yours, and one has a hinge thing, I think homemade, to fold it in half somehow. Ever seen one that folds? I really dont like the idea and I'll probably cut it out so I can make it rigid because I dont trust it.
