According to Finish builder Sami "cause rake is 45 degrees, it´s chopper then." Well I'm still gonna call it a trike but a trike that looks like a blast to ride
The whole project took 10 months, but actual "hard work" was done in the last 6 months. "I modified frame from original in our club´s frame jig,. I´m nc-machinist by profession, so it´s easy to to do all lathe work and milling (rocker splitting for example) by myself.
The oil tank is made from two fire extinguishers, and gas tank is modified from some old Russian-made tank.
Front fork is the bike´s original. Seat pan is by me, and actually only job that I have to give to someone else, was the seat leatherwork, which was done by my very own mother. I also painted the bike (still waiting some inspiration to put some pinstriping on it).
It´s fun to ride!" - Sami
