I am going to Merry Olde in September and intend to attend the Bealieu Autojumble. I need some parts for my 35 Morgan SS MX4 trike. I have noticed that some of the trikes raced in the US have hydraulic brakes.
Can anyone tell me what components are used?
I have also seen "bullet" type taillights, what are they off of? The same with front tube shocks. Thanks for any help. Hope to see some of you there.

Hydraulic front brakes are off a Morris 8. BUT you will need to brace the front cross head if you fit them or you will bend the chassis
Tail lights are I think Triumph Mayflower I think!!!!!!!!!!!!
Front telescopic shocks? Well, I do remember someone using the dampers from inside a washing machine as being the smallest damper they could find
