I was wandering around a car show the other day and seen this trike the fellow built. I asked if he objected to my taking some pictures and posting them on the forum and he said he didn't object.
So here they are, maybe of interest to some that are building the same concept.

Where is the gas tank?

Is it still considered a motorcycle? (by the state)

Oh sure, ask me now the shows over, just kidding :lol: , I think the tank is located under his photo album in the 5th picture down.
I didn't really get to talk to him much as he was parked beside one of Jacks X Prize Competitors and there was a big crowd around.

At first I thought it was just registered as a bike, but looking at the licence plate he does not have a bike plate, but a car plate, so I would imagine it is not registered as a bike. An assumption on my part.

Appears to me that the fuel tank is in front of the seat on the floor so it would be under his legs.
A better location than a motorcycle has and it keeps it away from the hot engine.
Looks nicely done overall.
