At year's end, I have updated my Tribaker website.
This is the construction of a 37' Stude 3-wheeled boat-tailed speedster which runs on LP.

It’s crude but mostly strong, and will all be coming apart for grinding, welding and gusseting after I get it “roughed together”.  Still not sure about the LP tank configuration, and thus the back of the frame rails are just hanging out waiting for some kind of decision to be made.  Need to finish up a rough axle so it is a roller, then to cold storage while we work on the salt-racer in this space.  Tribaker is likely to sit now till the end of August after Speed Week.

What an exciting project! You've presented so many well-considered details. If you can match that rendering with the wooden boat inserts, it will be stunning!

Great vision![8D]

I'm using a cut down 53' coupe swaybar. It will be stiffer than stock since it is shorter. The body will weigh maybe 400# and the track is 63". The shocks are from a Bronco. Most of the 3 wheel guys don't use swaybars at all, but I think it will be a good idea....

This is going to be fun to watch. You certainly have done your homework.

What a neat project Greg. This is going to be exciting to watch.

If it wasn't for the last minute i'd never get anything done.

Thanks guys. Now I need to knock together a prototype axle to carry the rear, modify the rear spring hangers a bit and pack it all away till next september while we work on the salt-racer!

Very cool, and right up my alley....I was thinking about doing this very thing!
I have now added a few more chapters to the build.

Adding Edmunds & Jones headlights would be so appropriate for a period construct.

That thing is really cool. The sides of the bed area look a bit crude, but I bet you'll work that out.

GREAT, I think it will be a good meet, been a while since we've had a Zone Meet up there & Wisconsin folks are great... as are the cheese curds!
They are even usually nice to us Vikings fans!
