Welcome aboard kliff.

I'm a new user my self. Found this MB about a month ago. Lots of good information and helpful people here.

I'm intersted in the trike application my self.:) Lost left leg on a Scooter VS Olds 98 some years ago. Would love to get the wind in my hair again. (That will be mustache as I keep what is left on my head shaved.):grin:
Cheers, Stumpy:banana:

Welcome to the board,

I think there is some info/threads on trikes in the transplant section of the message board.

I look at the Subaru motor as the new replacement for the old VW motor.

Good Luck,

Hey Stumpy This is Jerry, my neighbor is building a subaru trike. He got a gold wing front end with the frame and stub it on the rear of a EA81. He has a EA81 engine with the 4x4 auto and has it in 4 wheel drive. The drive line is the front yoke and rear flange with one u joint. My neighbor is missing his left leg thats why he has the auto tranny. If you want pictures i can mail them to you let me know. Thanks Jerry

Also,there is a guy who still sometimes pops in on the board who had a Subaru engined trike built here in CT.I believe the guy who built it also comes by this board once in a great while,or has at least once.Kind of like Jerry's friend where they used an EA81 but I think this one used a 2WD Automatic,if I recall correctly.


Here's his avatar- Posted Image

"dritchie" is his board name.He'd have some advice for you too.

Hey kliff, what do you think about that subie set up? I wasn't thinking that you could use the complete subie drivetrain. Should hold out better than the VW transaxle as they were designed for considerably less HP.

I have a EA82T FWD Auto that just my be my ticket when the time comes. Pushing about 115HP stock. :D

Wouldn't mind checking out any pic's you have for comparison. Stumpy

Jerry, could you post those pic's so we all can take a look at them? Kliff may be interested as well for ideas on his projects.
Got my EA82T running (Needed timing belt) and thinking it will make a great trike. It's FWD so I can have the motor a litter further back than your neighbors set up. Thanks, Stumpy
