That's my new incarnation of my trike. I modified a suspension by removing springs from between a-arms and I relocate them in middle up part of the frame. So instead black is now silver.

Frame is made from 32mm steel pipe, the same as an a-arms. All pipe interconnections are notched with my old myford lathe and TIG welded. Original Bandit frame is untouched  and front trike frame is connected to bike original frame by brackets (2 brackets below an engine, another behind bike radiator and below forks neck- as arrow shows).

Trike frame back ends (as above) were open wider by using simple made from wood blocks and M16 rod tool. It is not easy to clip on frame's ends onto bike frame, hence scratches when I was doing it before without a widening tool. Never mind scratches, it going to be repainted anyway.
