hey all...

nice forums!

im generally an HD rider ( ive owned 28 harleys over the years from 45s to twin cams) but sometime back, i picked up a custom built trike. it has a corvair 6 cylinder for a power plant and a chevy 2 speed powerglide auto trans. its been siting in the shop, and i finally pulled it out to give it a makeover.

biggest thing i guess i am having issues with is identifying the front end they used on this thing.

67552

it is an air suspension dual disk front fork setup with a crossover between the tubes on the top. the tubes are 34mm.

im hoping someone can help me ID the thing so i can work on starting to find parts for it. the tubes dont hold air. if i cant ID it, ill probably just end up changing the whole front end out to something else.

it will eventually be painted house of kolor kandy brandywine with gold metal flake

heres the trike, same one in my pik.

67553

any help would be greatly appreciated!

Whole thing looks like some sort of Ness monstrosity. I'd send him a pic and ask.

Looks like Yamaha Raiden from the '80s. Maybe.
If they hold fluid who cares if they hold air. I doubt even new seals will keep air in them with all that weight behind them. Put heavier weight oil and/or taller preload spacers if you need some extra cush.
