Hi all. 
we are hearing different information. 
Does anyone know if we cut standard frame down to make it in to a single seat ( bobber style )
I know it all has to be bolted so if needed you can turn it back to a bike. 
But does the frame have to be put back as a standard bike ?
Its a bit confusing as you can chop up a bike without problems with dvla so it don't seam right that you can not do it with a trike

Consider my self educated.
I thought i was posting different questions and i am also struggling to work how to post never mind in the wrong section.
SORRY TO ALL I HAVE OFFENDED IN MY POST. 
i have not been on for a while due to dealing with my PTSD which was coming out as anger to people who were just being normal people. 
I hopefully now am a better person and am finally starting my PTSD therapy in the next couple of weeks. I have done other courses while waiting for this one to start. 
Fingers crossed that out of those of you who I have offended can forgive my bad behaviour. 
Again apologises.

Sorry for the bad feelings. The main goal of this forum is to be friendly and help each others.
However, posting in the right area is very important as if we search for something it helps to find the relevant subject.
Not everybody is computer savvy and we understand this.

Hi Bearnie, On this forum iv been Moved, Adjusted, advised, and educated by people i don't know haven't met and most likely never will with their own style of   REPLY. and never  felt offended in any way, Having read the posts i cant for the life of me see what upset you.
 
Had you said you felt offended that would have been OK by me BUT to go GUTTER MOUTH. is not acceptable IMHO. I wish you well and every success with your project. At 76 yr old and over 60 yrs of motorcycling i feel qualified to say on this occasion BEARNIE YOUR WRONG.

Hi Barnie, 

I'm thinking this is just a simple misunderstanding.
Because we're communicating only with words, it's easy for a post to be interpreted in a number of different ways. This is a good reminder that body language and stuff like that's plays a lot bigger role than we assume. I try hard to write in a way that can't be seen as offensive, but I'm not good at it. I'm sure if we were all in a room together you would not have felt offended.

Hopefully this is just seen as a blip and you show us the progress with your bike.

Hey, Barnie
I only joins this forum yesterday, so I to am learning, and the layout here is not the easiest. I’m in the US. And speak, read, write and think in the Americanized version on English. I noticed not everyone here does. The first thing I saw two wheels say about “wrong place” , I agree he did not word it too well. I too, would not be ok with someone talking to me in person that way it sounded. But since I have seen that two wheels is a friendly and helpful kinda guy, I just chalked it up as a difference in writing style.
For example, I find your writing very had to follow; but as I am interested in your trike build, the burden of understanding is on me!
Cut two wheels a little slack, and remember, I doubt he meant to talk down to you, and I’m sure it’s just a difference in writing style.

Yeah, wasn't trying to piss in anyone's Wheaties in the slightest. I had to re-read my words to see what the fuss was about. A simple forum moderator's request was made followed by a bit of humour (which I agree could have been interpreted incorrectly). It says less about me and more about those who would choose to go off like a rocket at the slightest provocation. I agree that nasty words are best kept in a person's head. I stand firm from my perspective. We are done here with this subject now, I reckon.

I wonder what that independent suspension is off. rear wheel drive or front wheel drive? And is there going to be more tying that rear to the bikes frame. So far the logical places have been hooked up but the rear still seams to be "yet to be attached" from what I see. Barnie what front end are you going to run, car wheel or bike wheel??

Can you please post more pictures of the trike and how you connected the rear end to the bike frame?   I am starting with a E46 rear end off of a BMW car.  It has the same gearing as the original rear end.  I am in the planning phase and working out the geometry.   At the moment the big decision is to narrow it or leave it wide.  I have measured a couple Goldwing Trikes and I would be about 6 inches wider.    Have you changed the rake and trail for the front end?

Please post more pictures and any decisions you are making that may help someone else doing the same thing.

Hi sorry I have not been on for a while.
I have not been well and have put my build off for a while.
Here is a picture of what we have done so far.
I am staying wide as my wheelchair will be on the back.
I am using a BMW E38 axel.
I hope these are helpful.
Good luck.

Good luck with your build and your health issues. There's a sense of satisfaction doing your own build and it'll be a good feeling when you get to ride your brick, that's gotta be good for your health too. That's what I say to the cagers who want me to sell me brick saying its too dangerous. Sometimes they say it after butting out a ciggy, and I'll go, we both deserve a medal for putting our lives on the line.

Thanks Daveyson,
My thinking is if you don’t try you may as well be content so sit on your sofa waiting on the grim reaper.
Don’t nothing is way more dangerous than something that you love.
I am already planing my expedition of tour all over Scotland next year when mine is complete.
I hope you have all the good health and sport to carry on doing what you want to do while hopefully silencing the “ Oh that’s too dangerous mob”
Good luck and happy riding.
Barnie

Hi two wheels I am very sorry for the way I took your advice.
I am not making excuses for my bad reaction. 
I have been on various mental health courses in the fight to beat the demons that took over my head when I got disabled in a shit op. 
Hopefully you will accept my sincere apologies. 
I have edited my original post. 
Hopefully that old me has been dealt with.  
I am about to start the main part of my PTSD THERAPY and I can get closure on something that has cost me lots of family, friends and even my 29 year relationship. 
Hopefully we can move forward not sure where you are in the world but if I ever meet you the beers are on me. 
Stay safe
Barnie

Hi K75.
The back end is bolted on and is well strong enough.
Not sure on the front end yet we are still dealing with the brakes and other necessary parts.
My mate is a very good engineer and we think home made leading links and triple tree forks set up.
Looking at possibility of using the original back tyre for the front end with reversed rotation.
Have been told that as it is not under acceleration forces it will not cause any issues.
But again that will be decided later in the year when we are doing our test rides before strip and final finish done.
Barnie

Thanks Moriarti,
All I can do is apologise to the people I got angry at and then start to deal with where all that anger came from.
I have learnt that no matter what you do to fix things you can never change anyones opinion so you do what you can and move on to a better you.
As I said I will do Everything to stop my head going bad again.
Cheers for the kind comments.
You stay safe and as long as you have the heart the grim reaper will not get to you until your ready.
Ride safe
Barbie 68.
