I’m going to try using the reliant engine but have to alter the bike frame a little to accommodate it. If the reliant goes ok I have got two Honda 400/4’s, I bought one as a doner for the other but I dont need the engine frame or front end so I’m thinking of having a go at making a trike out of that. My only problem there is how to go about driving the reliant axle with the chain !
