    Thanks everyone for the likes , comments , and following along.

    Today I took my wheels and got new tires on them.

    I really wanted a more aggressive pattern but to get that in the size I need I would have had to go to a winter tire. The compound would have been a lot softer and I think the summer heated roads would have torn them up. These are all- season ones.

    I'll probably start to put the front end together next. That will put some weight up front so I can begin to hang stuff on the back like the transmission and shocks. I really need to get a front tire so it's all stable.

    I put the front end together as far as I can without a tire.

    I brushed the chrome on the shocks with a Scotch Brite to take the shine off.

    I mounted the shocks, transmission, and axles in the rear.

    I can now start to put the plumbing for the clutch and brakes on. You have to think a couple steps ahead so the stuff you need is painted and dry when you need it.

    I keep peeking in on your progress. It's really, really nice. I especially love the front forks. I'm currently trying to get my and my wife's Yamaha's converted to trikes and in fact removed the second fender from the mold today. Once they are done I'm pulling my friends VW trike out of the corner and start on it. Your build is giving me ideas I can do for little to nothing using what we have lying around. Of course, I need to first see if the engine case can be saved. Thanks for the inspiration.

    Thank you. I've been following your builds too. Very impressive work. On mine I've found that you can do complicated stuff if you break it down to the basics and do one thing at a time. The main thing is get out there and do something.

    Keep up the good work.
