Preplanning my next build, parts that should work and I like the look...I broke up the 2 seat model for a look at 1 seat, scale is 1/4, model is 36" long and 6" wide. What I have in mind here will be a 700+cc, air cooled, bucket seat from car shortened, IFS mustang2 type with rack and pinion steering and help from local dealer (tci). I am also thinking of windshield roll bar combo in the seating area, here in Ca. we have a DMV law for 3 wheelers, "enclosed" no helmet, what does enclosed mean? Body? I want this frame to be seen, so in the "windows" I will install baby blue, see threw plastic mounted towards the inside. ANY MORE IDEAS PLEASE FEEL FREE...

Tomy, here in fla a 3 wheel trike is different than a 3 wheel motorcycle trike. To be a (car type) trike it must have a steering wheel, a roof over the seating and side by side seating. It doesn't have to have opening doors, side windows, engine covers, etc. That is what they call a enclosed trike. Anything else is considered a motorcycle trike and is exempt from the regulation's for cars.
