thanks guys there is a pretty good bunch of us that still really enjoy riding and racing three wheelers but don't enjoy trying to find parts for a 30 year old machine so that leads us to convert newer quads or dirt bikes over to three wheelers and they do make for some bad ass four stroke trikes.

With the updated pictures, I retract my original statement I like it. That is a awesome looking trike. Does it handle like the old school trikes?

Did you change your radiator? If so what did you use? It looks a bit smaller.

The gas tank, radiators, shrouds, forks and front brakes are off a 06 yz 450. The front hub is a 86/87 200x, the front fender is off a 350x and the front axle is off a 250r. The front wheel and triples are custom made.

I can't really comment on handling yet as I on ran it in two 8 lap races last weekend on the ice but for not being lowered it did very well I know I'm going to like it. I will report back with handling if this winter ever goes away.
