look at the Honda Gyro more closely - also the Carver - the motor and diff can stay fixed - with the front end tilting. Potentially having all weight over the fixed section, including batteries. The tilting section can be made quite light.

It can be achieved quite simply... bit of lateral thinking required.

Yes, I can see the tilting trike tilting you right (or left) into the pavement when you hit the throttle, unless the motor doesn't tilt...

...say at 100MPH, would you want to attempt to take a corner with a rigid trike??
Body won't be doing it's own thing, it would not want to drop you on the pavement or do crazy unexpected things. When you give it power it would want to bring you upright again - same as a two wheeled motorbike.

...in the sketch - the pivot line is just above the footboards - hinged at two points. The footboards are part of the rear section, and remain level at all times. The front section could be spring loaded to help it return upright (gently) or hold it upright in a parked position.

You know maybe that's not such a bad idea... since I am pretty much stuck with a bike front end (mostly tyre) I could get better millage out of the front tyre if it leaned.


The rake on the forks takes care of the wear on the side of the tire, my front tire of my trike wears pretty much like a standard two wheel bike. Many ICE trikes are not built leaning, they corner well tilting is nice but i wouldn't be too focused on it, its complicated to setup...

Best of luck anywayz...

p.s for a diff you might want too look up Fiora machinery on the net, they are local to me and build fantastic trikes, they are available in kits for also i believe...

you don't really need IRS on a trike.

I probably still have an S13 rear suspension setup if you wanted to try one, but I think a normal solid diff would be the way to go.
