Making a new rear axle!

Since I am still recovering from the plague, I decided to make a rear axle for my Honda PS50 project!

The old axle is a self-made nightmare and I'm sure I can do much better than that. So time to get some material, a lathe and a thread cutter.

Marking the axle where i have to make it a smidge thinner. A smidge.

Oops. The smidge was a bit too smidge-y. Now I have to start over again. But not today, as energy levels are very very low. What I will do today is testfit the new handle bar and grips!

No support.

Hello everyone, I've caught the virus and I can't provide support at the moment.
I might have a look every so often in the coming time, but I feel like I've been hit by a bus. Multiple times.

I'm okay again. Support resumes from today.

Honda ATC185 ad (1980)

FFA National Future Farmer 28 4 Apr May 1980 p47 sm

It'd outperform anything in its class.
If there were anything in its class.

This is the most powerful ATC Honda has built since inventing the animal ten years ago. The most powerful production three-wheeler in the world. The Honda ATC185. The big four stroke engine gives you plenty of punch for haulin' or fetchin' or just barreling through the boondocks now and then. New design balloon tires float you over places you's neevr take an ordinary vehicle - like sand or shallow mud or even packed snow. And legendary Honda reliability gets you there and back again. All that in a little workhorse that's a lot more economical to but and to run than a pick-up. Add on the optional basket and carrying rack and the ATC185 might even help you get through the work a little faster. And on to the fun riding just a little sooner. And that, you'll have to agree, is class. HONDA Follow the leader.
