volvo 340 trike

Post by cleggy » 03 Oct 2017 03:36 pm

Hello people, joined today as I am building a Volvo 340 trike with a Honda motorcycle front end. I have two complete B14 engines and one 4 speed gearbox and differential . These are going into a ladder framed chassis . I am new to these engines and gearboxes and am hoping to tap your knowledge to help me complete. Looking forward to chatting with you and I should have plenty of parts left at the end of build to dispose of through this forum. thank you.

My father had a Bond minicar and I remember him kickstarting it with his leg in the engine bay - awesome it was but it gives you a bit of an issue cos the other little Johnnies were collected in Granada's *wilt* ;-0

Hi cleggy.
Can't wait to see the end result. As we say here in Norn Iron, It should be a CRACKER lol.
Cheers Mark
