I want a high three wheel on my 64. Standing and moving. I was thinking of installing 4 pumps 10 batts extending the drive shaft and putting 14 inch super strokers in the rear. Should i get 8's or 10's in the front. I want a really nice high three wheel! Would it help to get a chain bridge yes or no? I want a three wheel like the 64 convertible in the Jan. 2004 issue of lowrider on page 169. It is the one at the top hittin that high ass standing three! I want one just like that what do i have to do to get three like that?????????

Thanks
Jay

get at least some 14 inch rear cylinders, the more the better, (STREET SWEEPAZ has 20 inch rear cylinders), 8 inch cylinders in the front, and place the batts either on the fenders, or along the back, and have a coil over set-up with powerballs ;)

in a 64, the chain bridge is not necessary, the coilover should so just fine, but to each his own :cool:

to get a high 3 like that you need to build a custom rear end like a wishbone/slingshot setup or a 4-link. and extending your driveshaft is a no-no. you need to get a slipshaft with a real long splince travel to make that work cuz when you lock up a car like that the driveshaft needs to become shorter not longer...
and you wont ever need more than 8"s in the front cuz there aint enough suspension travel there to need a 10" even with extended a-arms.

my 3 with 20" bigdaddy cylinders:

it has a wishbone/slingshot rear end.

One thing that I notice is that people often neglect to mention that a strong, well reinforced frame is a very important part of the equation. Three wheeling twists the frame and the car doesn't last long if you don't reinforce it.... frame wraps are not just for hoppers. ;) ;) ;)

It is very simple to get a high three-wheel like the one shown in Lowrider Magazine. I wouldn't get anything larger than a 16 inch cyclinder in the rear because you'll never get 16 the full travel of the cyclinder unless you build longer trailing arms due to the up and down motion of the rear part of the car. You must also have a coil-over setup in the back as opposed to the traditional coil-under setup. Use powerballs instead of hime joints to avoid excessive replacement. Hime joints are known to break often.

i run 20"s strokes in the back of my 64 with stock lenght trailingarms, fully extended with 3.1/2 wraps of coil (coilover)
