    That is the gearbox that was mounted on the front of the diff on the early CSC trikes with independent suspension to allow the driveshaft to run inline.It was 1:1 but the shaft gave trouble.The fix is it remove the box and replace it with a yoke and purpose built shaft.The last pic is of the installed yoke and the rest is of the old stuff.
    Do not argue with an idiot.He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.

    When I did mine we weighed the pile of parts that were remove I think the weighed 28 pounds, Its a lot less rotating weight. I dont remember any gain in mpg. it's a big job to do , It was a lot smoother to ride .

    I have no idea. I honestly have made no effort to try to ID it.
