    Curt, What are your plans to power your Awesome Worksman trike ? I'm starting work on mine today using my 79 cc harbor freight 4 stroke and the jack shaft I got for the other trike. I never thought I would have a one inch axle to work with and so far I'm seeing a lot of options available !

    Not sure, but staton does have a 1" axle differential also. My plans are to build a Orient type trike first, [​IMG]

    But if i were to put a motor on the worksman use the existing axle sprocket, jack shaft. and put the motor between the legs up front, ( save the basket ), it has 3/4" bearings already. Other wise i would use a differential ( already have ) and make it wider.......Curt

    The Orient looks it's going to be one fun project to capture the look and feel !!! The fuel tank and lighting system are fantastic !!!! I always like the wider stance idea !!

    That's cool Steve, would be nice to get the right length axles, but you know me and my stash. My son bought a differential for his wagon form Northerntool, but was a long time coming, called. They sent him another, then the one finally come. So have one 38" wide, that would be abut 10" wider then stock trike, will build it to fit the axle........Curt

    Thanks Rick! Yes it is, but not something to ride on street like a bike, looking for a front picture. We made our own A arms out of Hiem joints and small tubing, used the small 4" coil over shocks, like on 12" full suspension bikes. Cop come by while running it on the street , just smiled and gave a wave. LOL.............Curt

    Curt how does a cop write up a motorized red wagon playing in the street? Seems kinda' un-American!

    You might think of adding a trailer hitch to haul your John Deer toy tractors to the park sand box.
