Don't forget the fuel tank. I'd hate to see you paint yourself into a corner.

I am going to take the easy way out and use the Rebel tank between the seat and the steering column and maybe wrap the frame around it on the sides?

Would love to have a tank like this custom one.

Over all design getting closer, rear shock needs a more lower mounting point, and the front shock? I just might take the easy way out and go vertical. My plan so far is to sell this before it is finished with or without the 250cc engine/ parts bike. The new reverse trike "Shenanigan's" will be sorta a kit, drawings to the engine compartment.

I'm pretty sure the shocks will go this way?

The welders in my area will not give me flatness so I will make the frame rails one piece which means the front end will be wider, OK I can live with this so now I bought the steel and am cutting new control arm mounts.

To minimize bumpsteer, consider bell crank steering, where one leg attaches to the tie rod fwd of the steering shaft and the other attaches behind it. If the toe links need to be shorter than this type of steering would allow, to match the arc of the toe attachment on the spindle, look for a center tapped center pinion rack. The ends bolt down to the chassis and the middle slides back and forth.
