Thanks for the interest fella's ....Still trying to figure out the process of posting.....Have to think in reverse
Great stuff! the company i work for http://www.brightonmotorsports.com
has just become a dealer for the morgan 3 wheeler ,they are great fun to drive and handle exceptionaly well .I had a freind back in new zealand that built one using a honda cx650 engine ,it worked well as it was a sideways v like a moto guzzi and shaft drive ,it went very well for its size .Good luck with the build and i will keep an eye on this one.
So you've gotten the opportunity to drive one....excellent. I initially bought a 1979 G5 1000cc to use as a donor but upon further inspection I found out it truly was a Rennsport, not just mufflers ( a hot rodded Guzzi.....Titanium parts,etc. ) I started chop'n bobbing and finding parts and a neighbor's friend found out I had it and offered me twice what I paid for it, so..... I relinquished it to someone who was a rider..... sweet bike.
Welcome. My interests are in trikes as well. How are you planning on doing the rear drive/suspension?
The VTX is a shaft drive/Left side and I'm using the rear end of a wrecked bike $20......The idea was to expedite the chassis build with out having to source the threaded inserts for the swing arm and the shock tower pickups..... its also the least congruous part of the chassis....but it'll be covered by the body.
It will be right side drive......Like the real deal.
Not only that, those old hi-res pictures went into my "wallpaper" directory...
I've got the first image on my computer as wallpaper.......Almost too big for most computers.....but I've got a MAC..... just right.
I've got the top rails bent and tacked into place.....Very harrowing to roll $60 bucks worth of steel and hope that it doesn't come out twisted....... but all went well.
