Oh dear.  A bit of a problem  The front wheel spindle will not come out. It has seized solid.

A six foot bar - a three quarter drive 32mm socket - a 28lb sledgehammer - a gas burning torch - 36" Stillsons - and all to no avail.

 The two front fork link arms have been taken out, the end ground off the spindle and a two legged puller attached, and still the thing is seized.

The next step is to find an engineering shop with a hydraulic press or similar.

This may prove interesting, because with no front end fitted, it means I have no way of transporting the bits in order to get 'em fixed.

Looks like I'll have to try and do something to make the VW trike rideable.
