The front suspension on the 56 is going to be a tad different...

Started on the suspension etc.
Image

Any old wheels will do for now!

I have moved the engine mount back and built a new tranny mount as well as moving the frame rails inwards at the front.

Been working on the steering,thinking back to my triking day and was building an XS750 engined trike it had shaft drive via a seperate bevel box = basically a uj in a sealed box giving a 90 degree turn.
So one steering box and two bevel boxes later....

In true trike fashion she needs tuning! so a resin air filter does the job.

Then it was a case of closing off the rockers.
Image

Woke up to a disaster,last night I used some spot glazing putty to tidy up the chassis rails - well a crop landed n a wheel and had a good old munch!!

Image

Image

Back axle..
Image

Image

Made 3 pedals from old p.e. and plastic card.
Image

How she looks...
