Peel Trident
« on: May 10, 2016, 12:01:31 PM »
Oh dear another one of my build threads, hopefully it won't go on as long as the p50 , I will be getting a piaggio ape 50 on the road at the same time as the engine is being rebuilt by Paul smith , any way the trident is using a 49cc moped rear end chopped in half, looks to be an easier build as the engine and wheel are already lined up , dismantled the bike and chopped it up last night

No purpose , it will just look funny at car shows with the rear wheel up on a stand , I've ordered the hubs and stub axles , struggling with the steering on this one

For some reason I have heard that a Trojan type steering box works out well for this application, but I don't know why.
I also heard that someone in the U.S. was working on replicating the original type chain drive steering box.
But it has been almost 5 years since I first heard this, yet never heard that it was ready for its debut.
Can anyone else help fill inthe blanks here?

I will research Trojan steering , the chain driven steering won't be allowed for msva as it seen to be a weak link

Are they 6" rims?
Do you plan on using shocks and springs, or rubber compression pads on this one?
