Did you get the electric reverse? I'm assuming your going to do the install? The easy steer kit is a fancy way of saying "Raked Trees".
I built my wifes from scratch,rather then a kit but if you have any questions that I can help you with P.M. me.

That's awesome! Maybe you should be in the trike building business.

First off thank you to all that complimented me.I have given thought to building another just to see how it would sell. I built her trike from scratch as the kits out there are so expensive that you end up with 1 1/2 times what most paid for their bikes. Makes it real hard to sell and get what you invested. I tried to build something that was a little different. Like the fact that it's a solo trike and the tour pak acts as a back rest for the rider. The body mounts to the differential which allowed me to keep the body very close to the wheels. I also made the body so that in about 2 minutes you can have the body off and work on the differential, change a tire or what ever. And her trike handles so well she is hard to keep up with sometimes.

That's a really nice trike. What I love most about it is that it doesn't look like a rolling luggage trunk or a ice cream peddler on 3 wheels. It looks like a 3 Wheeler made out of a bike. One of the nicest I've seen. Good job!

Have it on a stand, so it is easy to work on.
Will take it apart so when kit arrives ready to install.

Can easy move with my forklift.

Hopefully it won't be too big of a pain in the a** project. Remember, we're pic junkies!
