This is a Reverse Trike(RT) that I designed and built a couple of years back. It took around a year to design and build.

I wanted to have a RT with the back leaning like a bike, and the front square on the ground, like a car. So I devised a hinge system that would connect the front and the back together. That part worked well.

But the bike was nearly impossible to control around the turns. It would get flung to the outside of the turn and no matter what I did would not lean into the turn.

I have dismantled the RT since then. Gave the motorcycle to a Philippino friend who helped me out with parts when I was building it, and have kept the Quad Bike parts of the front for the future projects.

I post this so that if you're thinking about building a RT, you'll know what doesn't work and go a different route, or at least don't do exactly as I did.

Good luck with your projects.
