Re: type 3 kit

Hi Ollie Yes my offer still stands, I've just got back from hols etc so that's why I've been quiet but you'd be welcome to pop over some time in the forthcoming weeks. I'm working more on the body at the moment so the spaceframe is still bare but I do have a completed Triking you're welcome to look ...

This months calendar shot....

I went to visit a friend in Germany last year who lives near Eitorf, which is on the Sieg river, about 25km from Cologne. A few miles down the twisty road that follows the river is the pretty old town of Burg Blankenberg, with many old buildings including a ruined castle as well as some good outdoor...

Re: Carbs V Fuel Injection

I was holding off replying to this topic but now there's safety in numbers...! ;) Tony does have a point that carbs and electronic ignition mean you can fix everything yourself but petrol fuel injection is very reliable (unlike some modern diesels) and I like the fact that I can jump into the Trikin...

Beauty is in the eye of....

Spotted a couple of 3 wheelers on eBay today, this one looks reasonably well engineered but I wouldn't call it pretty... https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Honda-VT500-Reverse-Trike-MSVA-tested-Q-reg-new-12m-MOT-on-sale-S-Oxon/333195943408?hash=item4d94069df0:g:6ekAAOSw8xxcmx0x Or there's this one as well.....

Re: Rear wheel bearings - car type wheel

Hi Ollie if you're based in Norwich then I'm close to you - I live near Wymondham and currently have a Type 2 on the road and am starting to build a Type 3. The Triking is fairly simple wiring wise so I wouldn't be put off, I made my own wiring loom up as it's all basic stuff. Mine use the injected ...

Re: A-FRAME TOWING

That's a pity Tony. Given that the Triking handbrake is cable operated and that most trailers use an overrun coupling to pull on the trailer brakes, what about a simple cable running back from the coupling under the Triking to the rear brake? It could have a small maillon at the end of the cable to ...

Re: COMFORT Front Suspension T2/T3.

That's a great example of lateral thinking in more ways than one !
