Default Re: hello from south-eastern wisconsin

building these surprised myself! I expected these builds to be more involed then they were. I ordered the lifan 125cc engine for the Schwinn spoiler mounted it to the frame, bolted the rear sprocket where there was a rear disc brake, and it lined up perfect. needed a longer axle for the trike for the wider occ wheels. found an old axle I thought I could modify on ebay, and it arrived turned out to be exact length, diameter, with keyways right where I needed them. was a perfect fit with no mods! all three of my builds were like that. everything I bought or found just seemed meant to be. even the trunk for the trike had four mounting holes in it that lined up perfect with four holes in the rear trike axle housing! after the first build I thought that was way too easy, the next build will be a pain, but it was like all three builds were a kit that just needed assembly. I myself have a hard time believing how easy they were and how nice they turned out.
