Dane wanted me to install a Penninger jackshaft and cure severe chain misalignment. The steering linkage mounts had to be modified and relocated before good chain line could even be possible. Then 5 pieces of the Penninger jackshaft had to be shortened on a lathe and the mounting hardware replaced or relocated.
With a total of 14 lights and 7 or 8 horns, not all shown here, it's rather difficult to work on. Also, this was one badly built trike, like a Huffy on a bad day. However, Charles Penninger has since bought the rights to this design and is building it much better from all accounts.
The trike was seriously mis-assembled and none of the threads or the ball joints had ever been lubed, Due to poor design, and wear in the ball joints, there is quite a bit slop in the push-pull joystick steering with rods on each side. This would be a big deal on a 2 wheeler, but merely annoying on a trike. Note separation flanges (arrow).
