Thanks Bill...

Unpractical comes to mind.

Just have to find a sprocket with enough offset so the chain clears the rim.

That looks like a Wanda 1939 from Wanda Cycles in Sydney, good rides but a little high geared with the original sprockets, I like the springer front, might try that with mine

Got my offset sprocket out of Germany..

Lots of offset indeed. Hopefully the chain line won't be too bad

Not a fan of those.

Not quite as streamlined.

Looks great, I wonder if you could put a curved lower bar on one forward of the seat tube to increase flow and raise the pedals a little?

It's looking awsome mate. Love the fat rims with tyres stretched over them. My trike will have 100mm x 26" rims on the rear. Those bent springer forks take some getting used to with steering too as the whel tends to lean over somewhat, and you will find that the tyre rubs a bit as you turn. This is mine with the bent springer.

Cheers mate. It rode real nice and was surprisingly comfortable. Did many 20+ Km rides on it with just the single speed coaster on the rear. Have now on sold it to another member of our group.
