Hi!

Today the rims came back from the polisher. He has done a great job - the gloss is awesome! Take a look:

Hi!

Today the trike stands on his own wheels for the first time. It's a great feeling when everything comes together - most of you will know that. It's still some work to do, but this sight is a small milestone:

Very Cool. I like the wheels.

That would look right at home down at Little Sandy. They have some bikes like that down there.

Hi!

Thanks for your comments, guys. I'm very happy to hear people (who had seen a lot more sand dragsters in their lives than me) saying, that my three wheeler is a decent one. Here are the latest news:

To prevent the water- & oil cooler from impacts of little stones, I've installed two protection grids.

This is the new cover for the bench. The original one was made of two pieces (sorry - I've forgot to made some pics for comparison). Now it has a more cleaner one-piece design and the big cut out for the rear light is also closed. Like the front fairing, this one will be also rebuild of fiberglass.

Hi!

This is a short video I've made from the first test firing last night. After a long time of silence it came back to life! And the best thing is, that it made much less problems than I've expected. Everything is leakproof and the wiring works too:

Best rergards, Sebastian.

Hi!

For better maintenance I've build a mounting stand.
