My Dad is 73 years old, but is still very active. He built this trike last year but didnt have time to get it painted till this winter. It has a Corvette rear suspension and modified frame with a 305 V8. He fabricated everything on it himself. The trunk was made from the hood of an early 60s Chevy truck, and the Stainless steel cowl was made from materials we had laying around the shop that came of various restaraunts we have built over the years. He actually has this trike up for sale right now.

Curt, I am guessing the trottle is on the floor?
Is it a auto or manual trans?
Nope, the throttle is on the handlebars. It is an automatic. It moves out pretty darn good. It will do a wheelie.
