Congratulations on becoming a kit maker. A few questions if I may. How heavy is it (say with a 250cc engine)? How far are your feet from the front and how high above your head is the roll hoop? Otherwise, it looks like fun. Can I have a go?

Have to say I was tempted to that project myself, but have far too many other things on the go - would have lead to divorce!
I wonder what Stuart (Stig) will build next!
Don't forget I can supply you with lights for this beasty!

Good luck with the project - marketed properly you have to be on to a winner!






Furore Formula Car - the only two seater modern Formula Car lookalike. I no longer run Furore Products or Furore Cars Ltd, but would still highly recommend them for Acewell dashes, projector headlights, dominator headlights, indicators, mirrors etc, best prices in the UK! Take a look at http://www.furoreproducts.co.uk/ or find more parts on Ebay, user names furoreltd & furoreproducts, discounts available for LCB users.
Don't forget Stainless Steel Braided brake hoses, made to your exact requirements in any of around 16 colours. http://shop.ebay.co.uk/furoreproducts/m.html?_dmd=1&_ipg=50&_sop=12&_rdc=1

Thanks all,
Comments noted, Website still early stages but like you say the flash is not that great,,

The Trike is not tested yet this is the first job to do,

size wise, as it is currently set up your feet are reasonably close to the front, and depending on height just above rool bar i believe, but we think most interest will be with single seat and steering rack option which will change most of that,,

I will post updates shortly

A couple of questions if I may.

Does it require reverse.

Does it need a IVA test and if so how is it tested. IE bike car etc.

how is it taxed.

3 wheelers are subject to MSVA, which is like the old SVA test but slightly less, I believe. They do not need a reverse and are taxed like bikes. They need to go to a class 3 MOT station too.

I understand they need a handbrake... does it have to be mechanical, or can it be hydraulic?

Mechanical is required, and the Burgman Scooter has this already built it to the brake system, simple lever on a cable,,,
