Trike Help Section
Please can you help I am building a trike using a honda VF750s shaft drive with a ford granada scorpio diff only prob is the bike diff is 3.18 with a tyre size of 130/90/17 and the ford diff is 4.27 is they any way to lower the diff ratio to match the old bike or any thing else Ican do so I dont lose to much top end?
I am trying to find out what the requirements are when building a trike to make it road legal, and what license I need to ride one.
Thanks in advance.
I'm going to trike my 1986 honda shadow 750.
Can anyone advise me on axles to use?
Should I go hard tail or work of swingarm mount?
Any advice would be appreciated thanks, George
Question... Can you get car trikes with VW or Ford v6 engines ?
Is there anybody out there that does a conversion kit that turns a Silverwing from a 2 wheeled vehicle into a trike. I have found numerous manufacturers that deal with the Goldwing but as I cannot afford one of these and already have a Silverwing I must perservere. If you know of anybody that does such a kit that can be fitted by an amateur mechanic (namely myself) then I would be grateful if you could let me know - Many thanks.
Hi Guys, Sorry, But as this is the first time I have contacted you, I cant direct this at anybody specific. This is more of an engineering question, I own a Honda ATC 350X, this might not mean a great deal to you, but it an off road Trike, made mostly for the USA market, but I picked it up when I was working overseas, When used on Sand, or other soft surfaces, it really is a very Scarey motorcycle, ( Can I say that? ) Problem is, No Differential, it runs a chain, as a convential drive, straight back to a solid shaft, mounted on a swinging arm, What I would like to know is has anybody converted a Diff unit, To carry a sprocket? I have already manufactured a double "wish bone" suspension, carrying a small upright, so I can run an independent suspension unit set up, but I want to find a small Diff unit to suit, any ideas? Thanks for your attention, and sorry for the headache.
I have a Honda Shadow 600 for sale, but if it does not sell I am going to trike it for the other half and I wondered if anyone knows where I may be able to buy a trike kit or if there is anywhere you could take it to have it triked Thanks.
I have a Honda 250cn (Helix) which I want to convert to a trike, has anyone out there done this. First time project, I would be grateful for any advice/plans. No problems with welding/machining. Still not decided on engine.
I am trying to Trike a Virago 535 as a project for the missus, but as usual cost is the main factor. I have the bike but need a rear end conversion kit either made for me to fit, or if costs permit, to have one fitted. I don't want a complete conversion as I want to do as much as possible myself, but don't trust myself enough to make a frame. Any suggestions as to who/where in Kent can provide such a thing? New or secondhand doesn't really matter. Here is hoping someone reads this with the answers I need.
I have a VW Trike that I have just brought. It needs a lot of work, it is not registerd and Iwas told it would need to be MSRA tested before the MOT. What is this test?
I have recently purchasred a 50cc trike and am getting mixed answers on what test cbt etc I need to ride legaly on the roads. I have poor balance and can't and dont wish to drive a car can you please clear the matter up for me? P.S.. The trike is an automatic twist and go, I'm 23 and it was origanlly built with three wheels and was designed for people confined to wheel chairs although now has a seat. I only have a provisional licence - thank you very much.
I am desperatly trying to source plans or blue prints to build a V6 trike using a ford capri as a donar vehicle, but Icant find any anywhere can you help?
