I just returned home from a 2 week trip in New Mexico, have a few good pix, can't wait to share my off-highway traveling. Got to put 1400 miles on the scoot.

I started a project build there " File and Fit." I paln to continue that when I go back home in Dec. 2011. I first joined the board when Gary W had it in the year 2005. That was the time I really gained an interest in building chops. I have a long way to go, compared to some here.

Thanks for the replies.
I have looked over the threads.
I am good on the geometry that I want and I have the ability to build most anything I want to.
Just looking for some first hand experience with trike forks.
I am gonna build short and stocky and in stainless steel.
I also treat mine pretty rough, it is my toy. So it needs to be fairly robust.
I am thinking about the size of the primary pivot pin.
How much oversize for a trike that gets hot rodded?

I would , if building it myself anyway , consider a girder or a hossack for a trike instead of a tele or a springer ! Much stronger and easier to build in the geometry you need for a trike !
