Trike (BEAUTS)

Postby trikist » Thu May 03, 2012 4:15 am



Hi all trikist here just wanted to introduce myself. i recently bought a goldwing gl 1100 trike so im bit new to all this. itwas converted from a bike to a trike in 1998 but im not sure of the original age of the bike.
Im not able to ride two wheels because of my disability. (thats why i got 3)

So if there are anymore trikers out there in the cardiff (south wales area)get in touch.maybe arrange a meet???

Hello and welcome to the forum.
Cool looking trike, very different from the ones we have in the states.

Welcome to the forum, Check the steering head area( behind the headlight) of the frame for a metal plate, it should tell you the year and model of the bike as it came from the factory. 8-)

Also welcome to this great site.Now that is a bit different trike then most I have seen.But , I'm glad for you that you can still ride and enjoy life.I had to add extra wheels my self as you can see, so the wife would ride with me.
And I can tell you I love it.I got out for my first ride just yesterday,and it felt great once again.

Cheers for the welcome folks and yes my trike is different
because i want to exercise my own uniqueNess.
thanks for the advice Todd, i did check but there was nothing.
It was professional build but all i know is that it has been rebuilt.
I haven't had it long and its my first goldwing.

Welcome Bruno and I am very glad you were able to find a trike that you were able to adjust to with your disabilities. I am also disabled and am aboard a 1990 Gl 1500 Trike that I love dearly and in only one month put 1000 miles on the speedo. Enjoy it while you can, ride safe. Bud.

Hia all as I promised here is a recent pic of the back end of my trike.
Im stuck at this point because i don`t know what kind of design to put on it it looks to plain it needs something.

But now we got great weather over here i got to work, so i got no time. (**** happens).

You could try pin stripping on the false tank and back fenders. I'm sure as you get around others with cycles you will see different idea's.May even find a artist that is handy with a brush. Weather here has been great too for riding, cool evenings, but nice during the day to just go and ride.
