My name is Firefly, and I have been riding Harley Davidson motorcycles for over 40 years.i have been trying to find a forum to help me solve my continuing issues with my custom build trike. The rear sprocket cover keeps rolling forward onto my, now chain drive. It was eating through belts, at $250 each! And, my Fender blocks keep snapping bolts and axle welds!!Help please!!

Welcome to the forum. On a custom build such as yours, photos are necessary. There's so many different ways yours could be put together.

Welcome ! As Breeze stated, pics. Also helps to know make, model and year of the base motorcycle.

Welcome.

Sounding like weld joint quality issues.
and/or
Improper hardware grade used.
and/or
Improper alignment of frame pieces parts.

Thinking posting up in the Custom, Chopper General Discussions may be a good next step.
