Yes and Yes. I have added a quick change back seat since this pic, and in process of
building a qc utility box for chasin parts and such.
I have even had a wild ass idea of making it a dually rear end and
building mini fifth wheel to haul behind it....... Cool

Looks like a lot of fun. A trike is one of the things I've always thought would be a fun project but never got anywhere near doing.
Glad you got the photo thing sorted.

How funny you should say that. I'm just beginning a "cargo" trailer for my motorcycle, a VStrom 1000, to haul camping gear and a cooler. I'm going to make it look like a Canned Ham vintage camping trailer, only about 1/8th scale. Should be a lot of fun, both to build and to use.

The only thing ruining the scale appearance is the wheels - I believe many of the full-size camp trailers used 13~14" wheels, and a 12" wheel on the scale model looks all wrong.

I could get 8" wheels, but the speed rating is only 65mph, although, I would only be loading it a tiny fraction of their load rating.
