    Back when I first built my VW trike I almost flipped it with the Ol'Lady on back. (she was not happy)

    I added wheellie bars But they are solid and have a hard stop instead of a spring loaded stop.

    Not the greatest setup but it works.

    Don't need them much anymore though. Doing Wheelies was hard on my front end so don't do wheelies anymore.

    If you can add weight to the front end it would probably be beneficial.

    I know this is an older thread, but I'm new here, so couldn't respond back then, so I'll do it now. Lol

    The best soft bars I ever dreamt up were basically 1/2 trailer leaf springs curling down with wheels on either side and a thru-bar from eye to eye to wold the wheels as well as conjoin the spring ends. There is a stopper bar above the leafs that limits their travel, but they should gave a soft, progressive stop to the wheelie before the bump stops are hit. I never got to experience them myself, but they seemed like a pretty good design to me. I'm going to try out the idea on my home built VW trike. I'll report how they work, good bad or ugly, once I test them.
    Do you want to exist forever or do you want to live until you die?

    My tombstone will have this line on it: "For the first time ever, he had no Plan B" because I've learned to ALWAYS have a plan B in mind, as plan A was great but rarely goes down without a hickup.
