    So...here's the first days progress on the trike. I wasn't originally planning on rear susp., but it was there for the taking, so i did. The rear wheels will be moved forward at least 6", and hopefully everything else will be tacked in place tomorrow.

    Looks like it will be a killer bike. What kind of forks are you using?

    Thanks man-I'm getting pretty stoked about it. The forks are from a Stingray-I'm gonna cut 'em down a bit though

    8) thanks guys...I think it's gonna be about 7'. I really liked the proportions on the bobber, so I've been using it for reference-and spare parts unfortunately. I'm planning on the frame a lot lower on the trike tho-it will have around 2.5-3" clearance when it's finished. I guess I can 86 the kickstand too :lol:

    I picked up a stingray today for ten bucks, had almost the exact same idea for a trike. Looks good 8)

    Thx guys! She's a roller! Got everything stitched up last night, just gotta makes a few adjustments and she'll make her first run this evening. The cooler will be mounted lower-I'm not feelin' it where it's at right now. $10 is a steal- the cheapest one I've bought was $50, the last one was $150
