Trike-Plus

Post by vtflatlander1 » Fri Dec 01, 2017 7:23 pm



Does anyone know anything about the Trike-Plus add on kits you build yourself. It is sold by Buddy Products
of Florida. It is owned by Phil DeProtine. He sells the disc with all instructions and you build it yourself.
Any information would be helpful
Thanks
Fred

Never heard of them. Probably not on the open market outside of FL.

If you possess the necessary skills it may be a good way to go. Keeping the geometry correct is vital. Being off 1/8" could make for a miserable experience, and the proper set up is critical.

+1 , even a factory built kit installed wrong or not lined up correctly can be dangerous to the rider

Just as a follow up, I found this page while looking at various trike kits. I'm not affiliated in any way, and only post this because there are some other valid (IMHO) points to consider.
