The Dangerous Trike

So a little more movement on the Dangerous Trike.

Slim I think you will be happy to see I have thought about the points you raised ......... and fuckin ignored you :asz:
Not really. I could not find the axle breather so I drilled and tapped a hole, added a nipple and fitted a tube.
I also changed the suspension rake so the top and bottom fixings are equal distance from the stub-axle. I then drilled a fixing through the mounting to ensure it cannot move.

seat is fitted, with space for a slim bird :azote:with a bit of nasty (it’s my dream:devil-flip:)

Now that young sir is looking good (y)
Feel free to ignore me anytime mate, its yours & you can do what you want but either way I am glad you changed the shock rake & even more glad you pinned it in place (y)

Good luck with finding the slim bird with a bit of nasty most of them can do nasty but not many can keep away from the cake :eek:

I still don't like the look of the prop shaft angle.

The age old engineering maxim "if it doesn't look right......." springs to my non-engineering mind.

I bow to those with greater knowledge.

Like the colour though:D

I don't like it much either but we have had that discussion & it seems the angle isn't as extreme as it looks in the pics, Brian has already said if it causes an issue he will shorten the axle one side to bring the diff over ……. having said that the angle as measured is well within the maximum that the UJ's will happily take so I don't see it as a problem other than the look, EG function first form after :)

So I made my own 4 to 1 exhaust collector out of copper! I then connected it to a Suzuki GSX1000 end can.
Sounds great, but I cannot braze the copper. However now I know it all fits and sounds good I have ordered a proper BSK Works 4 to 1 collector.
Should have the beast running sometime next week.

Obviously the running issues will then surface but overall that will be the end of the 'build' phase.*

Edit to add - I am thinking of making a 'tray' type affair for the back so I can carry kit. I will probably make it and then ask for comments - NOT YOU ANDY!

Make sure you put a lining or a bit of carpet in. He'll love that.... :rolleyes:

Will it be big enough to carry all the bits that fall off?

Fair enough.

I will be obliged to offer advice though:rolleyes:

Ps I don't like the colour, I was just being nice.

A couple of pictures of the rack in place. I still have to finalise the fixing so don’t worry about that.
I think it will be very functional and looks OK
