So after 5 months (mainly due to lockdown, suppliers closing and so on) I was able to take delivery of my 3 Wheeler from Krazy Horse!
Over the moon with it, and very happy with all the extra work I had done to it, spec wise it is an early car (build 28) registered in 2012 with the full launch spec, Matt Army Green, the Shark face, the RAF roundels and so on.

It has had all the 2014 mods, chassis, centra, bevel, exhausts, heatshields, cooling kit, suspension, chassis, engine spacing and probably others I have missed..

I also had KH fit the rear wheel guard, relocate the regulator, redo a couple of odds and ends and finally supply a Brooklands wheel with a custom spacer (as I am 6ft 5"). I am very happy with how this came out as its the first 3 Wheeler I've ever been able to drive comfortably, interestingly for me an early car is much preferable due to the gear level position (it would be to far away with the spacer I have otherwise) and due to the better quality splines on the steering wheel release (I have to remove it to get it and out).

So a few pictures..

That looks like a very nice example - welcome to the 2012 club!
Just a couple of things jumped out at me.
[Linked Image]
If it is the original Banner battery then I'm afraid it will be on borrowed time!
Missing thumb-screw from fuse/relay cover? You may get rattles without it. And don't forget to fit neoprene along the bottom of the cover if none is present.
Have you seen the M3W Buyer's Guide on the MTWC website? This LINK should take you directly to the 5 Speeder page and the Buyers Guide. Scroll down to the Articles and Links section.
In particular, I would draw your attention to:
Page 4 - Chassis
Page 15 - Things to look out for on a 2012 car
Page 15 - Desirable reliability & safety enhancements
Having said all that, I do wish you many miles and smiles!

I love the 3 wheelers. That looks particularly nice. But, I'm actually suffering from Man-Cave envy right now. My single garage is woefully tight and causes me heart palpitations when I reverse mine in.[img]http://ibb.co/jknvhqj[/img]
