    Hello Trike World, few of my builds (Another youtuber)

    Hi guys, new on the forums, have read and lurked around for a while. Creating this thread to say hello and show some of my builds.
    I fixed up a 200m originally, rescued it from being stored in a shed for 25 years! that was the first one.
    Then built a custom 200 frankenstein trike, called the Ripper. It has a 200m frame, rear blaster swing arm, 200SX engine with reverse!
    My most recent build is a 200E on 30's, geared, snorkeled, jetted, ready to rock!

    All my builds are just hobbies which keep me busy, I created a disc brake conversion a long time ago, based on some ideas i seen posted on this forum!

    Very cool builds - welcome to the forum. Got a link to the 200M framed, SX powered, Blastard Swingerd creation? I'd be interested in seeing how you did that.
    RIP - Yamahondaman!! You will never be forgotten!
    RIP - Sam Brehm!! Gone but NEVER forgotten!
    RIP - Sandpuppi101 - You will live on in my mind - I miss you friend!

    Hello, thanks for the comments! and hi Mr.C I remember you haha.

    The ripper was a budget build, shes not fast but shes very comfortable to drive and has reverse so its a good trail bike for sure. It weighs hardly anything also, i made the wire harness from scratch and not running a battery on it.
    Most recent little rip with my buddy who has a mutant ( death trike / motorcycle haha) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6rL-OtUS_OU

    However here is some of the builds for the Ripper.

    Theres several videos on it, I was gonna throw a dirt bike or two stroke engine in it ideally but bought a good 200sx engine for 40$ so thats what it got haha!

    I just watched this video. I am still amazed at how many people on You Tube get a trike with just the air filter screen left like yours has. Then the say how awful the air filter looks, clean up the screen, put it back, and then brag about how much better it now looks, all without putting an actual filter over the screen. The other one is when they get a trike running without an airbox on it then they talk about how they're going to have to tune the carb a little bit.

    haha, this one is missing the air filter cover just has the strainer / main cage for the filter housing. Air filters are good to have, my Big Thunder bike was difficult to tune up good, it has a snorkel, high flow exhaust, pod filter in the air box. I had to drill the jets slightly and now she runs perfect. Still a bit smokey as she does need a top end job though.
    Air filter helps with being a little restrictive which in turn affects the mass air flow in the engine.

    Hey, I like the youtube channel, helped me repair my ripcord starter on my '85 200S! I was wondering if you knew where to get those boot guards (almost like highway bars from a motorcycle?) around the pegs, what brand they are / who made them, or if they were custom made by a previous owner?

    Thanks!
