    OK, I am going to give this a try, another trike! WHY! Because I have many parts left over from other builds and the ever so famous "I change my mind" or "It did not work" When I moved, it was to a retirement community with a 9 hole golf course and I do not play golf and never have BUT my wife is trying to get me out of the garage and exercise more, I try to tell her it is exercise walking around the trike all day?



    My trike will look more like a low seat bike with a hack for clubs, her, food shopping??? I hope to make it tilting or one piece frame...
    Something like this with a side car, WHAT DO YOU THINK???

    30 degrees is a lot. Consider the frame of all the touring bikes is rake a 26 degree. For the trike HD adds a tree with 6 degrees rake added . If you were to add 30 degrees to the frame 26 you really out there. And you will need longer tubes.

    To give you an example: Stock frame 2017 RGU rake is 26 degrees added 6 degrees. When you add rake the front end drops. Stresses the neck and tubes. Adding The trike tubes that are 1 3/4 inches longer brought the bike back to proper front end height. Over all the rake and tubes increased wheel base 4 inches.
