Does his python trike tilt?  The rear end looks rigid.  The titlitng python
trike I built handled fine.  No handling or cornering difference from the
two wheeled python.  Your trike design is very cool and from personal
experience, you really have to mess up a bike design BAD to make it
unrideable.  I think you should forge ahead with your original plan and if
it doesn't work, THEN you can salvage the front end for a two wheel version.
That's just me though :)

| After Mark Schaaf voiced the concerns he had about the using the python
| drive train on a tilting trike, Jetrike has been somewhat redesigned.
| This has left me with the remnants of the Python drive train I had
| already started constructing, so rather than let it go to waste, I have
| designed a python frame to use it (Attached Photo).
| The plans on my web site http://jetrike.com/plans.html are only a
| preview, I haven't finished drafting them up. It has a 20" front and a
| 20" back, elastomer rear shock, M12 rod ends for the pivot and weighs in
| at 6kg minus the seat. The specs are 1100 wheelbase, 60° pivot, 270mm
| negative tail, 240mm seat height, 380mm BB height, 410mm BB-FWA.
| The thing I haven't had a response about is what the best sear angle
| should be, I set it at 40° for now... any ideas?
