    awesome build man. trike should turn out great. i was just at ice races today here in wisconsin. sadly no trikes and only one 250r quad. if my trikes were together i mightve hopped in there but here they only allow trikes in the rubber class n i dont have the right setup for that with the trike im puttin back together right now.

    good luck with the build n keep the pics comin

    ya really .. how many years did we take a ass whoopin from chris D ....LMFAO!
    Hey Mr. Raffa....leave me out of it. LOL. By the way it was only 1 year and I didn't ask to win, I just did.

    Thank you to whoever cleaned up this thread. It went way off topic as it looks by the quotes left in.

    As far as this complaining about true bore sizes or representations of such goes, it is a moot point. I do believe it's the open class and that means anything goes by my definition. 310, 330, 500, jet engine, whatever. I say good for Anthony. I hope he wins as he looks to be putting in the effort and a powervalve on whatever size motor it is, should be helpful. Anyone can build their bike to whatever it could be and bring it out.....any 420 stroker banshee motor Tri-Z guys out there. Enough about that.

    I can't wait to see the progress. It looks like it's going to be sweet. I also can't wait to race against him on it....maybe next year.

    There will almost always be someone slower than you, and someone faster than you somewhere, so it's all about the fun, and boy we have a lot of it there.

    Well I am just about convinced there wasn't one good part on my original trike. $900 wasn't well spent, $6k later still needing new parts. The front caliper is shot I believe I can't rebuild it, and the rear didn't even have the block off plate on it, I have no idea how it was working all this time. Good thing I never plan on stopping. Going to the local race shop tomorrow to get some brake lines made, and off to flea bay to look for a caliper.

    I fixed my seat pan (broke off bolts) by getting some 1/4 20 carraige bolts and grinding the sides of the head to make flat spots, then melting them into the seat pan. I started covering the seat, but I think my electric staple gun isn't cutting it. also picked up my short track tank from the post office, and is in better shape than I expected, some light polishing and it will look great.

    If anyone has a good front caliper and can ship right away, let me know.

    Yes Mosh did the seat, and I am sure would have done a better job of covering it, however I am not done.

    Yea Bryan, it was fun to try and grind and take that picture at the same time

    No powder coating, looks like ceramic though.
