Racie,
What are you planning to use for the rear axle?

Thanks for the picture...
Racie, if I were a better mechanic I might understand more of what you're up to, but I'm not so will wait to see it come together.

Is this photo of Racie's build? So often motorized trike conversions seem on the wimpy side... meant for pedaling and a motor as a kind of after thought. Nice to see you are doing something different and out of the box, designing a true motor trike. Judging from your other work this will be something special!

that makes it all clear to me now...i figured one wheel would be more power than the other and the dead wheel would just eventually catch up...
