Holy shit!! That is fucking SWEET! I love everything about that.

Now it needs some crazy molded fishscale/scallop/fade paint job and chrome everywhere and it would be perfect.

Here is where the shit gets deep... The rear end came out of a (i hate to say it) large lawn tractor. We had to run a jackshaft (located in the seat tube) to get the gear ratios back in the ball park, it looks clean though. Some of the benefits to the rear end is that it has an open differential and a reverse. The axles bearings ride like a chevy 10 bolt so it should handle some r's?

servicar rear section and pre-'52 rear axle mated to a '69 Triumph front .. have a fresh matching-number engine for her inside the shop ..

looking forward to seeing more of yours ..

Yeah ! Ride it like it is ! Looks bitchin', Nice to see a servi car rear box reused again and now with those Moon devil '39 tallights ! The Indy wheels & slick tires fits an unpainted trike as a glove... And of course I like that Denver's springer..

Good parts on that trike of yours Dragon. I would have loved to put a servicar rear end in, but impatience got the better of me and we went with what was laying in the yard (kinda like spring cleaning). I will keep you updated as to how well the rear end holds up.
