3 wheeler front end?

hey folks,

buddy of mine is building a 3 wheeler . home made frame, 350 chevey w/ 3 speed tranny and a modified chevy rear end. trying to figure out what to use for the front fork. looked up some boss hog trike specs and they are talking about a " 63mm inverted forks, adj. preload 2.5" travel" front end . i'm a builder and know squat about bikes but i do use the computer and i've been to quite a few sites through google and still find no concrete info on what to use and where to get it.

my buddy bought a front fork with a rim and tire but they seemed alfully light weight so we took a set of scales and found that bike and rider equaled a front end load of about 650 lbs. and the forty psi tire looked alfully "fatigued" by the weight.

anybody out there know what to do here and maybe a "source" for parts. i believe he told me that boss hog wanted like $ 7 k for the front end/fork assembly.

thanks in advance for any help,

make a set of forks using hydraulic cylinders?

personally, I can't imagine trying to turn a 600+ 3-wheeler. you'll have send some pictures of it.
