Not sure, looks kind off strange perched like that though

Is that an old Honda Pacific Coast?
No! It's a Canam reverse trike.

Yup, Can Am Spyder. If you need or want three wheels, they are surprisingly good. we see them around here pretty frequently.

The Pacific Coast was an interesting bike.  I've thought about owning one and there's one for sale nearby, but my stable is full right now.  

We were vacationing in Quebec back in 2019.  Lots of Can Am trikes there.
I have several restored bikes along with a 2006 Goldwing with a sidecar. My wife has a 2019 Suzuki DR 650 for on and off road.

Had a really productive couple of days, got the lift mounts completed, have used Jeep sway bar rubbers (the first thing I found with a 30mm sway bar) in the fronts so as not to damage the frame paint) - got the old girl airborne and undressed - been measuring up the box of front end goodies ready to go to a nice man in the morning that will hopefully make it all fit together

Thanks, that is the plan. I want to enjoy the experience, but also it's a big lump for a little old man like me to wrestle with so this just makes it easier

You have better access to the underside and back of the engine.  Are you taking the engine out of the bike?

I will be taking the engine out at some point, for now it needs to stay in as some of the other work I have planned needs to fit around it. Hopefully I have made the mounts in such a way that I can remove it and leave the frame bolted down (front lower engine mount bolt will be tight)

Looks great. Did the gold anodized brackets come with the lift?

The gold brackets did come with it, when you order you specify which adapters you want to use with the gold cross beam (fittings are in the price) because I wanted something specific and I bought direct from the manufacturer, I didn’t take the fittings and got a very good deal (20% off list price)
