    are those the orginal axils on the rear bolted in and if so are they solid enough ? great job, one of the best trikes I have seen.

    Re: 3wheelsFOrealz...

    Thanks guys! I got a lil burnt out on it, but finishing up the tank has got me stoked again. I'll get some detailed pics of the rear drive tomorrow. Outlaw- these are the original axles from the stingray...I had to box them in and weld them up. They seem to be strong enough, but they do flex a lil bit, so i bent them so that when they flex with weight they are straight. I'm running the front sprocket on the lh side, which turned ou to be a royal pita, but kinda cool. Hopefully I'll be finished w the paint tomorrow...if it turns out like I think it will, it's gonna be way rad 8)

    Re: 3wheelsFOrealz...Done! (almost)

    Thanks man! I'm real stoked about it...turned out way better than I was expecting. I just got all the chains put on, so I'm hoping to cruise it thru town in a few- just gotta get the drive side working right. No bracing on the outside of the wheel is being problematic AGAIN...had it working great before I painted it :roll:

    Thanks again guys! Looks like I'm not as "done" as I thought. Outlaw-the axles are not strong enough...I'm in the process of building new braces now. Looks like she'll be getting fenders on her butt :wink:

    Re: 3wheelsFOrealz...Done! (almost)

    I was wondering about that if you were going to have problems or not. so with the fenders your bracing will go around the wheels? thats would be ok. fenders would look good. can you show us how you hooked up the drive train. really like this trike.
