Default starting a trike truck project

Getting ready to begin on this simplex truck project...end result should be along the lines of this one pictured. So far the frames are here and forks and one tank....the back has to be tabbed up and put on just behind the seat.
Wish us luck!

Signing on to follow this, do you have a truck frame or are you planning on adding one to a cycle like Rick did.

We have three frames ....all bikes not trucks....are copying what he did ...making two eventually..... Maybe use the whizzer engine if I wanna fab up a kick start.
the frame back shouldnt be hard to make...hardest part is finding someone to bend 1" tubing 90degrees properly without crushing....I think the race car shop up the road will be able to help with that though. Theres only 6 bends to be made if you look careful at one.

It looks alot like a Servicycle trike to me.
This is an awesome project! I'll be glad to follow it along.
