I like that. Looks very promising in that last pic &, personally, I like the bright green. Would look good with the white detailed motor.

the more i think about it manky  the more i think i may powder the engine bits white,. the green on the bike i did is a really bright metallic, doesn't show so good in photo but looks good with the polished bits.

found if i mounted the tank a little higher on the t shape theres room for the coil under the tank, used the curve bit of coil mount welded a bit of flat plate then drilled it and threaded two holes in tube of the frame. fits tight but out of way.
turbo, am based in horbury not far from jct 40 of m1.you local?    don't know where donor car came from, know previous guy had it for years and a few former owners on logbook.

Not sure if I'd call it harsh -bumpy maybe. When you're riding, you've got other things to think about, so don't notice the bumps so much. Your passenger is just sitting there thinking God this ride's harsh.
Most of my trikes have been single seaters, so not been an issue, but my last had a pillion seat directly over the diff. Never had any complaints & I rode pillion on it myself several times with no problems.
