One last question, the rear axel has a parking brake cable made in the brake backing plate. It appears to be an attachment point on frame for some kind if a brake handel. Is this stock or something someone made for it. My first trike was a stock 1954, about 25 years ago and I dont remember much about it, except it always started, and only would do 50 mph.
The rear right wheel parking brake set-up was standard equiptment for 1973 Servi's only
You must have a '73, or a '73 rearend, or at the very least a '73 backing plate..
The cable from the backing plate went to an auto-style parking/ emergency brake. See details on link below. Once open, Click image to increase size.. Hope this helps.. http://d.yimg.com/kq/groups/13289693/hr ... -Brake.jpg
For a bit more speed, up-size the motor sprocket, stock is 22T, nice up-grade is a 27T, or a 29T
Also for this, a 100 link primary chain must be used, they were made for 45 solos. & can be easily found by parts suppliers.
