TerraCraft Motors TC-2 Leaning Reverse Trike Build

a lot of you members know that I have been involved in TerraCraft Motors for the past 4 years with R&D side of the business. With the original Prototype World Only Reverse Leaning Trike with our Patented ILCS-Co-Pilot (Interactive Lean Control System) completion and R&D being limited by speed on the TerraCraft TC-1, we have started a new build that will be the most incredible, fastest, with a corner lean of 40 deg. This will be the first Hyper Reverse Leaning Trike in History. The Original TC-1 was built off a 1500cc Gull-wing, and was built as a 2 seat touring model. Link to our Website http://www.terracraftmotors.com/

The TC-2RR is being built of a AMA Graves Built Yamaha R1 with just under 200hp. Ill save specs for later, but for now here are some photos of the build and will update thread as progress ensues.

These are the technology development vehicles. The current build incorporated design improvements for our interactive lean control system (ILCS) and we are currently setting up for production and are taking orders now!
