I like how you used the steering support to attache the front end. Clever

What engine have you got there? What gearing are you going to use?

thanks ..

I am using honda gx 140 engine with TC ..

gear ratio is for now same as it was on kart, 13: 46 with 10 inch tyres ..

it was barely hitting 50 km /h

but I do not need that top speed with trike so probably gonna reduce it a little bit ..

also, will add leg support and rear brakes..

if everything goes well, then will remove governor, clean a engine a bit ..

Have you tried the good ol "DUMP THE ENTIRE BOTTLE OF 3IN1 OIL ON THE ENTIRE STEERING SYSTEM" trick?

Besides that looking good!

Make sure to not mix up the AstroGlide and the WD-40
