Trike kits- has anyone seen this

Post by WingForChrist » Sun Aug 01, 2010 9:03 am



I found something interesting on flea bay over the last month.
Has anyone seen this and would someone trust this setup? I actually was thinking about this type of makeshift trike before coming across this.

Yes, I've seen these on E-Bay too. Looks more like a utility trailer than a bike (trike). I guess it could be useful though, for golf course maintainance, hauling groceries, etc., but not just for "pleasure" riding. (I don't think)

That is the first time I have seen that, but I have seen (they sell them in my area) a trike conversion for about $4000.00 that you bolt on to your ride in about 5 minutes and away you go. They are what I call training wheels for motorcycles. This one looks like a homemade version of the ones they sell. I like the looks of trikes and have two buddies that have them but these add ons look tacky. I have also seen guys make their version of a sidecar in the same manner as this trike kit and it comes out looking the same way. To each there own, thats what makes the world go round.
