well i think seven days are up so hopefully below this you should see a picture of my trike.
shes not quite finished yet. a second seat is planned and she needs painting but i have been enjoying riding it to much whilst the weather has been dry.
hope you like

Very Mad Maxish - trikes ain't usually my cup of tea, but this one appeals.  If that was mine, I'd leave it just the way it is & find a way to clip a removable pillion seat on only when I needed it.

cheers katsd. seems great minds think alike. the pillion seat will be removable and only on when i am gonna cray someone. colour has to/is going to change as thats the colour it was mainly when i got it so i dont want it to stay that way.

cheers guys  Twistedspirits VX800 Trike 433968 frame i plan to do in a dark gray. tank and bits etc was going to do black cherry candy but think i may have changed my mind. might do a cracked paint effect with white underneath cracked gray over the top. still thinking. 
few minor tweaks mechanically so she doesnt give me any trouble over the coming colder months and i will then get on with painting the frame.

That looks bloody great! I know trikes aren't to everyone's taste, but I'm definitely a closet trike rider and could see myself adding a third wheel at some point.... I think it also opens up all kind of opportunities for carrying a pillion in more comfort and more gear in some cases.


Diff approach on colours.... Gloss black for frame, Lambo orange for fenders and tank.

cheers guys. shes getting there. hope to move onto paint soon, as soon as i suss the oil problem and get the new seat on.
hawktheslayer the exhaust aren't to bad  Twistedspirits VX800 Trike 852880 they aren't 60mm straight trough, they drop down to about 20mm. has a nice bark though and you know im coming. straight through when she was first fired up sounded like a harrier jump jet taking off affraid   the neighbours would not have been happy.
