    Looking good.

    Those forks seem bent back, like someone smacked into something head on.

    Would be a good excuse to put the later 185S/200S suspension forks on it.

    Suspension forks won't make it turn any quicker. As far as lights, you can add anything you want, as long as it's below the stator output.

    I'm not certain if the wire colors are the same, but the wiring basically is. This is on the the 3wheelerworld home page, under 'Honda Wiring Diagrams.'


    If you don't have an OE headlight housing, the old style tractor work lights actually work really good.

    I used to run two of those on my 185, one spot and one flood. They were about 30 watts each, so I had the flood for low beam and the spot for high. They were very durable and long lasting, and the light output was better than an old OE headlight with a faded reflector.

    They used to be easy to find and cheap, now, not so much of either.

    If you're wanting something a little more modern, I made a thread about the LED conversion on my 185.http://www.3wheelerworld.com/showthr...ersion-for-LED

    No shortening the wheelbase should make it turn quicker with the electrics where do I hook the multimeter to test the generator
