    How does the radiator get air to it? Looks like the seatback would get hot....
     
  2. I built a trike back in the early 70's, I used a servi-car rear, use a custom made frame and a 1964 HD panhead engine and transmission/ no reverse.

    I'll dig around and fund a couple of photo's. HRP

    there is an elec fan and the rad is kinda in line with the grill area in the back. I honestly have not riden it much farther than 15 miles from home. The fuel tank is fairly close to the radiator and I didn't want to find out what would happen if it got hot. It is all a compromise that I knew about when I was building it. I really did not want to put a motorcycle fuel tank on it. The look was more important than function to me and I am happy to just putt around town on it

    Well, it's cool as hell! Has a 60's-70's vibe for sure.

    The old saying goes: "He who dies with the most toys wins"! You sir, are definitely a contender! Lots of guys have bigger car collections, but you have an incredible variety of finished cars and that makes it awesome. Here is a picture of the trike I owned when I stationed in San Diego in the early '80s. Servicar rear welded to a Triumph Trophy frame from the seat post forward. 20190917_154024.jpg
