Is it possible to make a Streetfox steer by Tank Levers and if so how is it done,are there any tutorials for doing it?

By "Tank Levers" do you mean pushing the left lever forward to turn right, and vice versa? If so you are probably interested in under seat steering, which pivots the steering under the seat, with levers that often come up at the riders side, where they are steered just as you would anything else, but with longer handles to reach the hands. If that's not what you're talking about, then please elaborate. I'm sure the folks around here will be glad to help you figure something out :)

You mean something like this?



Push and pull bars with a steering link across the two wheels giving Ackerman angles. If so then yes such a system can be employed on any tadpole trike including the Streetfox. As to how you need to set up the steering link first as per the std Streetfox then make the top arms on the uprights. Note how much the top arm moves from lock to lock and then work out how much bar movement you'd like to have to operate that movement range bearing in mind the bar lengths above and below it's pivot. IMO it's much nicer than dropping bars into the uprights and moving them left and right and feels fairly similar to under seat steering which the Warrior uses.

That's exactly what I need.

My rods connect to arms at the top of the upright but if you have room you can place the arms at the bottom just as easily. You will have to ensure it doesn't interfere with the steering link though .
