    my wheels center line is 12.5 inchs of the ground and the seat is 1.5 to 2 inch's above that, so me the rider should be sitting at 13.5 to 14 inch's off the ground and a inch or two above wheel center line. Ed Roth designed trike. Interesting

    Am I reading this right? You have a Roth trike? Wow so lucky, I met the man 3 times and what a wonderful person, he made me think auto styling...

    I bought the trike from my neighbor, believe this the trike was her mothers, guess she had boyfriends that built it for her, so the story went.

    Never met ED, but his design looks good, man that would be awesome to spend time chatting.

    He was given the patent in 1973, and my trike was registered in NV in 1976, and this makes me wonder about things and have questions, so a sit down with the past would be a blast for me.

    Hope all the best, ride safe.

    I am not happy with the upper frame rails being 19" wide and the seat less? floor boards? But the engine is 16.5" wide? SOOOOO!!! I think it's time to set the engine and do a work around after the front control arm upper rails are finished, I should take a upper photo of seat and rails. Mocked up the gas tank brace and tie end for the rear engine mount and seat...

    HPIM3352.jpgHPIM3354.jpg Wife likes this seat better (wider) Lowered the ride height .5 to see the change in toe in-out and brackets for the front coil overs, I need them to be adjustable, the shocks are not, so maybe inboard?

    I too like the one long seat compared to the two piece seat. I hope all works out for it.
