    been almost a month, had a few low offers, 1 guy said the ad was kind of confusing and pics weren't that great. had a leaky front tire on trike #3, installed a new front tire. Decided to order the throttle cable for trike #4 it's got a 200s front fork, going to swap a solid 185s fork with a 110 hub so it'll only have the rear brake. I'll get a group pic of the 4 trikes, and rewrite the ad.
    Crazy thing is, like most of us into old trikes realize how much the small parts can add up when putting a trike together. So I was thinking my price wasn't out of line, just not too many three wheeler fans out there. jim

    That makes me think that even if I wanted to, I probably couldn't. I don't do the F-book thing, stopped bothering trying to sell on C-list, and recently swore off selling on E-bay. The E-bay thing wasn't a big deal, because I don't sell much, but recently I had something sell that I completely forgot I even had listed. It was a small inexpensive thing, but still something I had to take the time to package and ship and I was low on time that day so had to put a rush on it. Buyer received the item and decided they didn't want it. I refunded their money and just let them keep it as I didn't want to bother with it again for basically no gain. Not a big deal at all, just a type of situation I really don't have time to bother with right now and don't care to again in the future. That, and E-bay now wants personal banking information and a SSN for managed payments; NOPE.

    went out and worked on trike #4, im calling it my roadkill (motortrend TV show) Trike. found a 200x? thumb throttle, got a new cable installed. got a air cleaner installed, going to swap the air box back on as soon as I find the screws. got the rubber insulators on the tank and found a new petcock for it. Need to order a gas cap tonight, brake cables came in, not sure which forks and hub I'm planning installing. I don't have a seat pan, but do have a rear fender.

    And I still want it to sell the collection, but I can't stand something not running so I keep buying a few parts here and there. Wife says it's crazy to spend money on them but not fixing them is a waste too. jim

    one down, 3 to go. project roadkill went to a new owner this morning. guy showed up, saw it run, paid for it and actually rode it home. Called later to get info so he can order new rings and gaskets.
    might put up the next trike up for sale, this one doesn't have a title either, has a 85 200s motor in it. runs great, just needs seat foam and cover. jim

    im always back and fourth about selling out. i was up to 25 running nice trikes i sold a few but still have around 12 or so, most of mine just sit and collect dust anymore, room was a issue until i bought another semi trailer they work great for storing trikes, just remember every one u sell u might never see again lol the biggest thing i hate about have multiple bike is moving them around and maintance

    the trike hobby comes and goes for me, i always have 1 or 2. I'll get into my other hobbies and a year or two later, I'll find a beater trike and fix it up for a quick flip. This time there was a ton of cheap trikes for sale in a short time. Now that the kids go out with thier quads, it's fun to be able to ride with them. Now that I stepped up to a 350x. I feel I really dont need all these 185s.
    I went to stare at the 200s frame I was going to scrap, and got to thinking about what it would take to make another roadkill trike.
    3 tires, carb, chain,seat. jim

    I bought another parts machine for $350 and started parting it. I noticed prices really falling in my area so if its under $500 and mostly there I take a truck ride.
