My latest project that i am going to start in January 2008 is a custom built chopper style trike, powered by a 5 cylinder 2 litre fuel injected Honda G20a motor. The reason behind choosing that motor and gearbox is because they are all alloy and the axles go through the sump so the weight is fairly well placed right over the axles. I have already bought a donar car for the project so step one is out of the way.
It may be a huge engineering task depending on my approach to it, but i'm up for the challenge. There is no pre built frames or info on the net to fitting one of these motors so i will be designing and building the chassis myself from scratch. Hopefully the ideas i have bouncing around in my head at the moment will work out to be a succfessful idea, time will tell.
Alot like the hovercraft portion of my website this section of my site will eventually have a diary of the build process so feel free to keep a eye out on the progress.

I've been a slack buggar as far as the web page goes and havent really taken many usefull pics for ages but i have just aded 3 more pages to the body panels section and started a pre-cert catagory
March 12th 09 - Just added more to the bodypanels section
jan 13th 09 - I've done a fair bit on the trike since last adding to the web page. I havent updated the webpage as much lately because i havent had the time but also because alot of the stuff i forgot to take photo's of so i'll add all those photo's later when i pull the trike down again to clean everything up. In the meantime i've added pages to the body work section cause i'm now at the stage of getting stuck into that.
NOTE: Only the last 3 additions will be showen here, previous additions are moved to here
