Paul it does not give any sensation of tippyness at all, having said that I,m fully aware of the dynamics of delta trikes. As such, no fast corners, it gets treated as a cruising trike. My other with the 20" wheels satisfies faster handling urges. At 68 the ride and the scenery is of more interest anyway

This will be the last of the pictures. The windscreen was added and the trike got a shorter but good test with it in place. Notice the black section under the seat with a rectangular hole. It provides a good base for the seat and also some storage. The piece of blue coro sitting on the seat just slides into the brackets on the edges, that offers some water proofing and hides the storage to a casual eye. It is a great spot for some tools, a phone, my wallet, etc. Also a couple short pieces of wood that in case of a flat can be used as a shim when standing the trike on end allowing an easier method of wheel removal. The pictures were taken on a local nearby trail. Its very dry here, without rain we may be heading into a drought.

I think that looks a lot better than it's previous incarnation. If you put a backwards facing seat at the rear you'd have a tuktuk esque trike. :unsure: Have you thought about a pair of rolled up polythene sides, perhaps stored rolled on the roof but able to drop down if it rains? You could make them completely detatchable for those times you're certain it won't rain. They'd not necessarily need to be all enclosing but perhaps just enough to stave off the worst.
