Still mocking up where clutch/brake running boards are going to go. You can now see the extra brace I put in and the clutch pivot points with the grease points in place.

Here's the new Dawgbone risers! 3" high, 1" offset

 

 

Update 8/26/2002

Will Post some new pics as soon I take them!

Well, the new baby(Scotty) is now about 2 years old and I'm finally having some time to work again. Unfortunately, I also bought a dirtrack racecar which is getting in the way of progress. I realized now that the trike is a winter only project as the kids/activities and racing keep me busy all summer. However, it's one hell of a winter project !!! In the last several years since the last update, here's what I've accomplished:

1) Got the master cylinder mounted

2) Got the brake pedal assembly mounted and am working on the brake lines.

3) Purchased blank disk brake conversion kit and drilled out to chevy bolt pattern (did this myself, it was a job !!!) I learned how to work a lathe and mill in the process, also brushed up on my Trigonometry.

4) Got the disk brake conversion kit put on - pretty easy if everything fits. I went through an 8 month period of working with MOFOCO out of Wisconsin on this. They sent me the wrong setup multiple times and it was a pain in the butt to work with them on this specific order, otherwise they've done fine by me in the past, but I do tend to order from Autosport in Vancouver Washington now. I ended up sending the MOFOCO disk brake kit back for a full refund as they never did get it right. They guys in Autosport got it right the first time. YEA !!!

5) Fabricated the seat mounting and gas tank mounting assembly (this is actually one welded assembly that is removable due to the need to be able to get this beast out of my basement...)

6) Started tedious task of sanding down and cleaning up welds/primering frame.
