    the guy that made the frame, is he still in bussiness
    Dave Watt, Cyclestyle in New Zealand. He is no longer in business. Mine is a Cyclestyle Digger frame - I cut the neck and raked it to 55 degrees. Nova Trikes used a knock-off of the Cyclestyle frame, but they are no longer in business either, sadly.

    Dave Watt built 'the Alchemist' - the most awesome VW trike on the planet - that I saw a photo of years ago on the web and absolutely loved. No references of any kind, just a photo. Couple years later I saw it up for sale, called Dave, agreed on a price, and then investigated the process of shipping to the US, importing, registering, etc. and discovered it was next to impossible. So I built my own. Here's mine and Dave's side by side (top and left are Dave's, bottom and right are my version).

    I like the Rewaco. They make one with a Harley TC88bB engine too - the FX6
    - used to be the HS6. I had considered buying one of their adapters that mounts the Harley engine to a VW transaxle for my last sandrail, but the combined cost of the adapter and a new TC88b engine was just too much.

    What a good place to try one of those new S & S "X" wedge motors.

    Really sad to see Nova go out of business. I dealt with them a LOT when I was building my last VW trike. I actually purchased my Cyclestyle Digger frame from them - the only one they had left. They originally purchased all their frames from Cyclestyle, but started experiencing delivery problems, so began manufacturing their own. They built a nice trike and were great people. Always had answers to questions, and parts were delivered promptly and accurately. The frame came with the paperwork to register, and insurance companies knew what Nova was, so greatly simplified titling and insuring. At the time I bought the frame they also had polished stainless Cyclestyle a-arms which I really preferred over Nova's chromed steel ones. They also had a Cyclestyle polished stainless lower 'luggage rack' - which worked great after I bent the back up 90 deg to make room for my battery.
