    Trike axles

    Here you have two types; the straight axle which is the oldest and original trike axle and the easiest to produce.
    Then there is the independent suspension conversion with each end connected to the drive housing,

    Then there is the drive shaft, some have a centered drive shaft and others use an offset drive shaft. The offset drive shaft is inline with the output shaft of the Wing's engine. This means there is no stress on the drive shaft with odd angles.

    Nice written. If there have some most straightforward steps to produce, then why I choose an old?

    The straight axle is less expensive and some buyers will go for what costs less, but more riders are going to the independent suspension for the ride quality.
