no limit for sale
« on: 05 Jan 21, 07:18 pm »
I built a cycle trike a few years ago and its just sitting in the shed its a honda gx160 linked to a villiers 4 speed gearbox so its a sequential gear change. Honda 305 Dream rear wheel and James front hubs The king pins are from a mobility scooter and it has a tractor steering wheel. I have fitted a kawasaki starter motor and it has a slide carb and a pulse fuel pump. The main chassis rail is a scaffold tube with a mobility scooter subframe on top. The body is plywood and the tail is fiberglass. email me if you are interested d.evans09@btinternet.com  its a total one of. I am getting a bit too old to get inside it now anyway.

The front suspension needs a bit more tinkering. At first it just had two motorcycle shocks but I found that when the kart leaned one way it didnt come back so I modified the shocks so they only worked on compression one way so the frame would return to the center this worked a bit too well as it tended to lean over too far on corners its was a bit scary so at the moment the front end is locked in the center position and its far more stable as a result. I am not sure it needs any suspension  as the whole thing pivots around the rear wheel. Its all good fun.

hello
The gear box is a standard 4 speed box from a villiers 2T or 1H engine, There is no primary chain case so the clutch and chain run dry open. I made a frame that holds the engine and gearbox together and in line. I had to fit a very small engine drive sprocket to gear it down or it would have been geared to go 80 mph. I have only had it to 20 or so in second gear its gear for about 40 but I dont know if the engine would have enough power to pull full revs in top gear. Its very fast to 20 though similar to a 125 motorbike
