The joy of my life and me

Lets see where to begin.  I started with a 1975 vw beetle that was used as a dailty driver until the old owner burnt a bearing in the crank do to running it low on oil.  Paid $1000 for everything he had.   Was on a salvage title.   Took body apart and started cutting pans out to replace.   has sat for a year since.  Bought in 2007.  Have been trying to deside what to do since if i restore its not really worth anything.  Was going to create a manx.   So now lets build a trike.   I am using two different designs to create the dream i see.
 

So here are my two influences

Slacker G Trike
