Yikes! :shock: I don't see anywhere that the frame around the motor can be un-bolted - looks like the only way to get that motor out is to strip it out. :eh:

It's a rat bike. They will just cut the top struts off probably and then weld in new ones.

Is it just me, or should the trike not be SMALLER than the car from which you had stripped the motor?


I love the look, but methinks it could be a bit of a handfull on the road. And ear. And the occasional pants.
I feel a lot less wise at 45 than I did at 15.

If they do that, they will have to weld with the motor in place. Not a good option, also no space to weld fully around the pipe. ;-)

Also wondered about that ..... I'm assuming that's the oil radiator and that there's an engine coolant radiator with fan built in somewhere behind the motor / gearbox. :think:

Radiator is at the back - look at the long water pipes from the front along the sides. Must have additional pumps to circulate it that far !
