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 4

Today I managed to¬†finish one of the jobs that I started last week, and that was the mudguards. I made a decision 2 weeks ago to postpone the test till 26th July. this is due to the fact that progress was to slow and the outstanding jobs where to great to make it to 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.

Just Keep Swimming (part 3)

Just a quick update. With the majority of the wiring laid in, it’s time to start neatening everything up and to make it all presentable for the MSVA. One of these steps is mounting all the fuse boxes.

Just Keep Swimming (part 2)

Having left the main start power installed in the previous part, I moved on to the next step by installing the start relay and engine wiring. This means that these will be some of the longest running wires on the trike.

With Great Power (part 5)

After all the fun we had trying to start the engine last time, we thought we would attempt it again, following installing some of the wiring for the trike. This time it was a huge success!!

Just Keep Swimming

This week has resulted in some great progress on the trike.With the back brakes being bled and working, the other draft shaft installed and the throttle cable roughly routed. These things combined has led to the trike completion being set to 85% done!
