    I really like that wire mesh on the sprocket. Cool idea.

    Kingfish, good eye, as always. The "Hot" is a warning about this build,lol.
    The disc came off outdoor patio heaters, hence the "Hot" word stamped on them.

    Rounding corner to third base; should be home by the deadline.
    Decided to paint the rear wheels copper tone. Still need to finish the copper studding on the edge of seat, remount rear wheels and attach the "hot" wheel disc and final test spin. Then it is photo time.

    Okay, took her for spin. Heavy and steady. Perfect for this fatboy.

    Sunday morning is pics time.

    I love a trike and I think the one I put together is kinda cool,but for this one I think the wheel disks say it all.

    Falstaff, thanks for the encouraging comments. This is what makes it all the more enjoyable; to make cool stuff that fellow builders appreciate and vice versa.

    Absolutely impressive use of copper and chrome and black.
    Looks like it could have come from another era with practicaliy for today.
    Not just a looker but a rider as well, as all rat rod art is.
