I am beefing up and having of course to redo rear end/axle etc. I last had it titled in Illinois for the street. I don't remember them having like a vin plate. I believe mine had the numbers stamped into a part of the framing pipe over the rear and I cut it off and misplaced it after all these years. But, I thought that if they ever did make a plate it would be cool to make a similar one to put on this.
    What's your thoughts please?
    Did you check the neck tube for the vin stamped in it?

    The first of the three pics in your post looks just like mine that I bought in 78. I ordered it out of a catalog here in Florida. Could you tell me what model that is?
    Thanks

    Actually, my xwife back in 1982 wrecked it and I had to replace the front end. That is when I changed it and disposed of the tube! Thanks. That clears up a lot. My title has a vin# so I am just creating a plate that I am going to rivit to the front end where it originally was.

    My model exactly is still in the air for me, but I am making quite a modification. I am basically making a almost completely new trike but for now, I will just leave it registered as an 74 Alsport. I hope to post photos of build soon.

    Nice to talk to you. I was born in Chicago and ran small engine shops, lawn mower shops, so always been into mechanics, speeding down the strips! I like Old chevy trucks too. Had a 59 that I loved.

    But I always loved this trike and even more when I made it able to go the speed of sound, LOL.


    Thanks!
