My 2c though I think you have a V as against my Wee and You gonna put your chair on the wrong side.
I made mine 1650mm wide overall, and I reckon that to be a bit narrow for stability when turning towards the chair while its empty. Had a few scarey moments already and thats on well known local roads.
Even cars move over when they see you pick up the chair and head towards them.
1850mm or six feet wide would be nearer to my next build width I think.
Oh and a steering mod to reduce trail will take a heap of work out of the equation.
I have yet to do that but its on the gunna list.
