  1. What type of cert inspector would i need to involve to build a trike? Preferably so i can register as a car to save on the massive rego costs will be running my Honda gx690 engine with a turbo on it for added fun. Will graft a narrowed independent subframe to a bike chassis to keep it all fairly straight forward.
  2. How much power does a motor like yours punch out? That drive belt is massive.
  3. Im tempted to buy a tube bender and start again to be honest as this works bloody well now but has its limitations being stand up and hard tail yet i dont want to cut it up. Ive got a pair of 205 50 13 Eagers stashed in roof for a rainy day. I'd like to build a trike with a sport bike front end on it to get it nice and low with some rake added. One of these engines would happily drag a good size car at highway speeds so i reckon a trike would be pretty rapid. Even something like this floats my boat.... i might consider a bit more chopping to convert to that.
  4. @Kimjon Cheers will see how i go im running an electric pump to keep the SU carb happy at moment, it runs a battery and charging system. My sons mobility scooter could use one though its always running out of gas. Probably going to be Christmas break before i get out of house though
  5. Hey just spotted this on TM pretty cheap would be compact enough for your stretched bike. https://www.trademe.co.nz/2411466369
  6. What do you do when you need a big fuel tank but your surrounded by fire extinguishers...... Shortened and rewelded needs a tidy up and some caps and a AN-4 bung put in it an a few tabs to mount it. My fuel pump shit itself on Friday so will maybe relocate new one up front with the tank to free up some real estate for a bigger wheel and new exhaust pipes ive got sitting in a box.
  7. Cheers ive found the pocket bike tyres are really a shit fit to the rim one i fitted had 5mm of slop on the bead so wouldn't even inflate. My current one is a snug fit with a tube and i used an adhesive similar to loctite to stop the rim spinning in the wheel, its a bit of a fuck around but finally takes the abuse im riding it 10ks at least every day at moment. I really want to bung an axle under it and make it a trike with some suspension.
  8. I owe @Kimjon these fuel tanks for his projects problem is im riding it to work. Building a little one from a fire extinguisher this weekend to keep me going in meantime. Sorry mate will get them to you.
  9. That ring that slips over hub has done wonders holding it all together i did a massive burnout on it yesterday nothing is showing any signs of duress. Saw one last night on a concrete saw sitting embedded in a traffic island just out of huntly must of jumped off a trailer.
  10. The wheel hub brace works a treat i have absolutely torture tested this thing the last 2 weeks! Probably clocked up 70-100 ks on it now on gravel and grass fitting a bigger fuel tank and will keep riding. Have changed throw on throttle as it was very on or off now is heaps better.
  11. Well thats the down pipe fizzed together guess i need to man up and get on to rest of pipes when possible at work. Got some cleaning up to do on this internal weld but thats this part finished turbo is all ready to be plugged in made the oil lines ages ago.
  12. Will be welding the 2-1 collector on the turbo flange this weekend needs to be done with mig as our tig at work where I'll do the pipes is a bit better suited to light stuff. Going to be doing tuned length if possible like whats on there now but in stainless its 1" into 1 1/2" tube to keep the velocity of gases up right up till they smash into the turbine. Should be fun.
  13. Its alive..... been sitting at back of a shipping container at work waiting for my attention to fix the busted wheel. Turbo tubing has arrived. When i get some time will start on the manifold aircraft dude at work is porting heads for me.
