      A trike offroad is really dangerous... It's doable on flat surface but I wouldn't recommend on uneven ones.
      Say your right wheel hits a divot while your turning left, you are flipping no doubt.
      Just use a quad.

    Eye hello Colin! Great bit of building skills you show there mate! But oh I ave one question, what would that devils trike run like with out those slippery sleeves over the tires? If they were to actually get traction down to the ground? Not for uneven surfaces, especially with no suspension, but just as is, but with just those sticky slicks ! Man I bet that would be very hard to catch! Especially if you were to find a real Honda engine with a 4speed and actual clutch!

    Collin, i have a question. Hopefully you see this. Or maybe someone else can answer. Im doing this build the exact way you have done it. However, i am using 2x2 box section that is 1/4 inch thick. Its all i could find for free lol Anyway, how did you go about mounting the box section to the bike perfectly even? I cut as accurate as i could on both sides with a whole saw, but if your even a few millimeters off, it will throw of the centering completely. I cant seem to get a 100% snug fit the the box section going against the bike. Did you have to finesse it a little? also I highly recommend not using quarter inch thick steel box section for anyone else who's looking to do this lol. too thick

    Hey great project but..... Maybe bending the whole tube up to match the bike and then double U bolt clamping would be better? Bent steel with none removed = lots more strength. I might have to have a go at this. Thanks Furze!
