I started this with a newer release mpc tiki trike and a Fuji amf Harley Davidson that I had that got broke and I couldn't repair it.  I took the gas tank and engine from the Harley and added it to the tiki trike. I had to add a single tube to replace the dual tube frame that the trike had to make the gas tank work. I scratch built the belt drive and tranny. the rear tire is a rubber tire I had sitting in my tire box for years. I only had one and finally had an idea for it . the rims are from and old model a. I put them on each side of the tire to look more like a chopper rear rim and added the chain and rear gear from the tiki trike. the rear fender is from the tiki trike, just with a lot of modifying. the exhaust is from the Fuji amf Harley and the carb 1 of the tiki trike carbs with a velocity stack added to it. I scratch built the v part of the handle bars with some flat stock and added the grips from the tiki trike. the seat is also built from flat stock.

Really looks like a nice bike. Kind of hard to tell.
