    nice one .keep thinking about finishing one i have in the garage. but too many toys already. if anyone is interested i have a mould for vw trikes ,aluminium tanks etc mould comes out in a gelcoat no painting. few sets forks .nearly enough bits for 3 trikes ,stainless buggy pipes. bars, switches ,.
    used to build full time but packed in a few years ago .you may see kernow trikes still going around. have fun dave i did and still do .
    worse thing is they charge for a car when you use a ferry .
    cheers alan.
    i take a dax in the 5er ,would like to take the drifter but its 8ft 6 long and weighs 300 and odd kg.

    Now that IS nice John..looked around for one of those myself but never saw one for sale or in that condition...then i spotted the Rewaco on fleebay at a good Yorkshire price:Rofl1:..Can i ask you who you insure with? because the brokers for trikes seems to be in the hands of one company...Adrian Flux...also how do you tow it?...The trike doctor does a jockey unit @ £285...Dave:thumb:

    At the moment i'am on this forum>>http://www.yorkshiretrikers.co.uk/ Phoned T/D to get his advice on Rewaco spent about an hour...was very helpfull:thumb:
    Part of my problem with ins is i do not have any ncb for bikes and i'm driving it on my car licence..so realy £450 on a 12k bike is not bad.
    Because of front end weight on your trike do you use a ramp?..would not fancy lifting that lump on and off:Rofl1:...Dave

    best is use a single spec fitted to tow bar with extra bits welded on to keep it firm. you can driv on to them with a vw trike the front is so light. remember they are all illegal as it as back brakes fitted and should work .even on less than 750kg. i have traveled many miles with mine while delivering new or going to some shows etc ,never been stopped but could have been. have a good story ready you thought under 750kg was ok . once came home from a show and the clutch went on the van .so i had to power the whole lot from the trike while my misses steered the van it worked. very slowly though. have fun ,bet you got a smile on your face just thinking about going for a ride. cheers alan.

    Yes Dave I have a ramp but rarely use it as the Harley engine is powerfull enough to push the front wheel up and I have reverse gear fitted so it also reverses off without ramp.
