My journey into trike building


That Final Push – Days 5 6 and 7

As the days countdown I now have only 2 build days to go till the trike goes for MSVA. This deadline has started a bit of a panic and I am getting worried. But I have a great team helping me and I know it will be ready for test!

That Final Push – Day 2

Following on from yesterdays progress more has been achieved. As you may recall I had made a list of 14 things that had to be complete before going to MSVA.

Engine Bits – The Final Parts

Before the engine was fitted for the engine cage design, I added a few parts to complete that section of the build.

Just a Little Longer

Today has been a very productive day, by managing to combine the four main components of the vehicle to give us a platform to start building the engine cage that I really want on the trike.

With Great Power (Part 4)

In the last part of this article the engine was more or less complete however it was missing some rather important parts. Adding these will mean that the engine will be com.plete and ready to use!

And another update from Rob, hes fairly moved ahead with the rebuild having got the crank back from the people who did the regrind. The crank required new bearings, and they have been refitted.

Another email from Rob the other day with another update, consisting of the progress on the engine case and the continuing crank shaft issues.
