    That sits surprisingly well now mate (y)

    Once its on the road if you get any head shake over bumps you might want to look at getting a square section sidecar type front tyre, normal bike tyres tend so skip a bit over bumps on a trike due to the small contact patch & a sidecar one with a bigger contact patch should eliminate this although it does make the steering heavier its a cheap & easy fix

    You can also mess around with rear tyre pressures running them low usually helps handling 25psi is not unusual but it does depend on each particular trike some are fine at normal pressure some skip & bounce/slide when being "enthusiastic" on a swingarm trike

    if you remember Slim I did look for a square profile tyre but my wheel is 17”. I now have a flatter back wheel fitted to the front with the rotation marks removed because it is backward

    I wanted the BMW Sunset Orange but the paint supplier did not have it. The stuff I got has to be sprayed on a silver primmer. As I layered the top coat the colour changes, had to respray two side panels as they got too dark.
    Up close you can see the variation but I’ll tell people it is a unique feature I added
