Just found your site. Looks interesting. I own a blue TM that I bought over three years ago and had to build a pole barn to have a place to store it. My wife thinks I'm nuts. but I have always thought that it was a neat vehicle. I have a few plans such as adapting a minivan rear hatch opener with a keyless entry, ventalation system, rear camera, etc. Mine is powered by a 82 Kaw 750. Main problem is the guy that built it was about 150 lbs. wet and I will have to make some serious modifications to the cockpit in order to be able to fit in there.

I like what I'm seeing. These look to be very rare trikes once complete and how the builder is able to customize to there wants and needs. I am lucky enough to own one that has been completed. I brought it home this week. I'm now in the process of doing research for a transplant. I would like to speak to others that have drove one about their handling characteristics. Mine has a goldwing power plant in it now. I have never been a fan of a carbed bike as cold starts, setting to long, and other issues that come with four carbs. I like pushing a button on a fuel injected bike in dead winter not having worries of " is it going to start" . Not that I plan to take this out in the winter. So I'm now on the look out of a modern day water cooled liter bike. I will check back to see what you guys have to say. Thanks

Hey Peter,
Not really much yet- other than the larger the bike, the better. Also, if you can design your bike with the liquid cooling I think you gain more control over more success in that area. Otherwise, I love the project! Just restarted it recently, as a matter of fact. Having a lot of fun with it! Thx! r-

Riley's plans have interested me for awhile, any major issues in your project?
