    The trike looks nice, engine installation too. check once more if your gearbox is 2.5 ratio. I think it is 2.5 but... If less (2.34) I don't recommend 69" KOOLprop, only 67.3

    Yes it's 2.5 and looking forward to the 69" Koolprop!

    Looks like a Modified Tukan or Sabre trike? Like the back shocks Have any further details on them?

    Yes Michael, it's a early 90's Sabre Trike. The Tukan fiberglass mains had a few failures on hard landings. So Sabre added aluminum sleeves over the rods to stiffen them up. ( Third hand info to me...) but I was sure they couldn't handle the extra 60+lbs the Geo engine added over the original 2 stroke. I made the back stunts from Mountain Bike springs and aluminum tube. They have less than 2 inches of travel so as to not stress the mains (and keep a good ground clearance for my big prop) in a hard landing. I'm no engineer, but they work....
