Its just a mockup, but I've accumulated enough parts to pretty much get it done.

Going to try a cvt on this one. I've never used a cvt on a trike yet, but I think I may be on to a good thing. Time will tell???

That seemed to work ok!

Thats my old trike, I just put that up in case anyone was curious what they go like.

This new one isn't finished yet, but should go faster with the cvt. Though I haven't fully figured out the gear ratios yet. Think ill just send it and see, then change it if I have to? That logic has worked out for me most of my life.

Bit of action...que cutting and welding montage:

Mate it with a drift trike:

Pretty happy so far.

Interested to see what you think of the cvt on a drift trike whether it hurts your control of the slide, suppose the brakes help reign it in?

Hmmm???? Hadn't thought that far ahead?

My guess is that it'll be awesome? But yeah, only one way to find out? Full send!

I think ill be reducing that sprocket size down tho? But it was all but free, so I'll try it first before spending money.

Brakes...pretty important on most vehicles

Fuck yeah...combination spacer/crush tube brakets. Love me a good multi purpose bracket.

A lot of over engineering going on here.

Smashed it! Pretty much done, just need to order a few miscellaneous parts like cables to hook up for controls etc

Brakes all sorted.

And I drilled the jet out to 0.95mm and added a pod filter for maximum unicorns.

Welded in those brake crush tubes

Resized_20200827_150825.jpeg.cf903e1b5e52a352f655f251dfffcc09.jpeg

Threw some paint on it after a quick going over with a flap disc, wire brush and some solvent.

Then it fucking rained on my fresh paint outside, but only a couple drops. So just going to accept that and bolt it together as is tomorrow.

Got all the big bits assembled and running well. I have to clearance out the inside of the cvt housing, because I'm running mine upside-down to usual, in order to shorten the chain as much as possible.

I've hooked up throttle and wired in a kill switch on the handlebars. Its only got front brakes, which on a trike are completely useless. I need to get hold of a master cylinder and some brake line to finish the rear brakes.

Pretty happy with it so far, its all falling into place.

Good shit man Cvt for the win bit more space you should have legs to keep the wheels going over any distance.

Another year, and the trikes have bred. 15 trikes now, but only 11 turned up this year due to life, work, kids sport, adults sport and a sprained uterus (okay, that last one may not be true, as I don't think technically a man can have a uterus?).

Anyway, a great day with good mates, skids, beer, talking shit.
