I tend to start these things and get to a certain point and then something else pulls me away, but I will try to take this a bit further..............

I'll get some other pieces primed and then start fitting things up..........

Set the transaxle into the frame and it seems to sit just fine............

Great looking work so far. At first I thought the transaxle and the bike frame were for two separate builds.

Coil-over pieces.......

post-4885-0-68880600-1361752976_thumb.jp

These parts have no real prep, other than a light coat of primer, so they'll get a little attention prior to paint.........the springs are really more of a place-holder.........the shock-body pieces fit together with a keyway feature.....insert and turn 90 degrees, and then they are captive..........put a real spring in there and the part functions........I won't do that here, for the half-shafts I have are fixed........

Austin, I hope I don't disappoint, but I was kidding about the "obscure" part...............it will be a Porsche motor................maybe a little obscure in a trike................

Now, perhaps I should look into an NSU Wankle..........that could be cool.................

And here are the half-shafts..........

post-4885-0-41300200-1362172253_thumb.jp

And with them in place, most all of these fit-checks seem good........little issue with what appears to be half-shaft length, but is really rod-end related........easily adjusted, or so I think..........

post-4885-0-15742500-1362172290_thumb.jp

Now I can get into some color on these pieces...........and of course, start sorting through the engine parts................
