Have any thoughts or advice? I started with a frame my father gave me in 2006.

Really cool, looks good.

Not much trike conversation going on here at Samba.
But when/if you need help tuning those dual carbs and such the guys here in Performance Engine can be a big help.

Make sure your trail is right.

You do have the "idiot light" load on the alternator so it will charge?

I will no longer ride without fenders. Maybe I am just old, but dont want to eat the dirt anymore.

Keep the air filters clean and oiled as they will get a lot of dirt thrown around their area.

Put enough weight on the front tire, even if you must add ballast, so you can do a panic maneuver.
Even though it may seem drivable, if you ever get in a bind.....say someone pulls out in front of you and you need to dart to the other lane quickly.....it is scary as all heck when the front just skips and skids.

Just an FYI, you can remove that tin behind the crank pulley for a cleaner look.

Thanks for the input. I made fenders for the back. And I have one for the front. I've been driving this trike for 10 yrs now just recently went through another rebuilding. Im uploading more photos of this build.

Very cool re-build. I love the craftsmanship of the tank cover.

Looking good. Just and FYI, those transparent distributor caps are crap, and often arc and crack inside.
