I have missed out on seeing this pic :(

do you still have it on file somewhere PC? I have my XS1100 plus enough bits to build another 2 and I have just been offered another complete bike and enough bits to build another 2 again lol

I would love to build a trike out of at least one of them, maybe a nice outfit on 1 of the others and I will still have enough for a couple of chops

Thanks heaps for that PC.

It is definately very not too bad indeed. I think I have just seen what I need to do to at least 1 if not more of my XS'

I know they have plenty of grunt as a stand alone bike, I spoke to a bloke with an outfit on 1 on the way back from Wanbi and he was extremely happy performance wise too so I can't see why they wouldn't have plenty of go as a Trike too :D

It's what the customer wanted!!
His wife was going to be riding on the back and she's over 6' tall so i guess it was to get her in comfortably!

Cheers all :D

Thanks PC, for some reason the first pic now shows up. Extra pics a bonus. Did the ally checker plate reflect the sun?? 8)

I remeber seeing a few xs11 in BSH smalls and the like, as ridgid chops, certainly i think a grunty four like a 1.1 would be toatlly cool for a chop.

I like shorter trikes meself, but my son thought the bench seat was great, cause the whole family could tag along.

Now that would be fun..
The other good reason to make it long is better stability: the main challenge facing a forward engined trike.
Time to start playing with the Vmax.
Oh and maybe I should finish the trike too!

Man ..... that trike would be ideal to take on the Mega Run next year , you could "bin" the back seat and replace it with all our swag's (eh eh) or a large eski or both :wink:
