Im currently using a Yamaha L2 card which by the way works great with Yamaha Chappy. I also have two 3 wheeled original chappy in my collection.
Those trikes are badass! I can't even find a parts bike, and you seem to have an abundance!
Still waiting on parts to arrive to carry on. Trying to use OEM as much as possible, and the parts are still out there but it is a scavenger hunt. Sent headlight bucket off to try and get a paint match, waiting on that too!
Here is with both tires on, chain loose, still just doing mock up before tear down.

you sir, are an artist!! that is a work of art
I can't even get the paint shop to match my paint, even after I provide them the exact recipe and the headlight bucket !! The computer scanner they have couldn't match my color from the headlight bucket. The guy kept trying to get me to pick from a paint chip chart, but they wanted to do it in a 1 stage process. The recipe I provided calls for a 3 step process, which I am willing to do, I guess the 2 colors I provided do not exist, so I may have to try and see best effort when I get to the painting. I am nervous to destroy original paint on the frame if I can not get it exact. Here is the formula I provided, direct from an official Yamaha paint chart from that era:
1) PNT 65000-01-46 White Pearl Basecoat
2) PNT 76000-00-K9 CGE CHAPPY GREEN
3) PNT 65000-04-00 Clear
But the first 2 don't seem to exist anywhere I look. Doesn't help it only seems like they used Chappy Green in 1976 and 1978 from as best I can tell. I could be wrong tho, it is exhausting finding out this much

Guys, please check out my collection on my YouTube Channel so you get to see my version of Yamaha Chappy with trailer and my Lockdown projects. I have also joined an Endurance Challenge before the lockdown taking my Chappy to 650 Kms endurance test! Lol! I have also shared some troubleshooting videos on my channel.

I'm going to say that does not look qt.
