Hi welcome to the forum..

Male, Female or poof?

Look we know you are not stupid and not everyone can build their own trike, we have some of the best bike and trike builders in the world on these pages so why not put in some key words and search the site, you might find someone has already built exactly what you want and may be prepared to sell..Work out how many seats you want, what type of engine, are you looking for something that someone else will maintain or do you want something that is easy to do yourself, how will you get spare parts..make a list of what you really want before you go much further..Trikes range in price from about 2k up so you have enough money to get almost anything you want...Good luck..

John.

hi thankyou john
first off im a male, all my tattoos are properly spelt, ive worked hard all my life ( builder landlord, ) i know a lot of so called poofs, lesbians, ect ect and most are very good friends of mine. i could easily go and buy a rewaco, boom, ect but im looking for a one off trike, that will make me smile like a demented zulu on magic mushrooms every time i look at it,or ride it. i was looking at maybe diffrent ideas, from this site, that i joined quite a while ago, but have been happily sitting on the side lines reading ect ect the posts.
ive a good supply of jd williams, snap on, blue point, gas welding gear,mig,tig ect, bike lifts, and i can turn a good spanner to a bike, it im looking for a good builder, who i can trust to treat me like i will trust him, as trust is earned and not given. been stung quite a few times over the years, by good ideas, and smiles.
i will put my ideas on hear in a post, and hope to get a good reply from a nice sort of chap, kindest regards

Hello fella, like your attitude , and you have enough money however to buy most guys dreams . But beware , all that glitters and all that crap ect ect. What may look good may not drive good. I've had the missfortune to drive a very expensive bug based trike and it was shit. back heavy , kept lifting front wheel under pull off and had a turning circle of half a mile, but shit did it look good and at the same time some of the cheapest rat bikes i've seen handle the nuts. Don,t commision anything until you've tryed somthing similar and decide exactly what you want. Spend the time and research what your looking for cos in most instances you don't know want you want . Good luck fella and remember more respect is paid to somone who has designed it themselfs rather than somthing shiney from somones showroom.

If you want summat gobsmackingly good in the way of big trikes, then I recommend you see this bloke:

http://phwfabrications.com/

He runs a V12 Jag with twin superchargers and has built more big car ones than anyone I know of. His standard of work is very, very high too.

His new one is going to be mental too - can't tell you what it is cos I'm sworn to secrecy, but it is going to be stunning.

I agree with Nik. Awsome fabricators.
As you are a builder landlord you will know what you like and what you will be happy with.
Remember stretch your imagination and let the builder create it for you.
Start sketching and digging around in your brain for the things that have turned you on all your life....and get it all included in the trike build.
And enjoy every minute.

I cant understand it, him being from the north east and all.

I was born and bred, god help me, in the north east and never met anyone as polite as that, that doesn't include me naturally

Welcome to the forum, Waggerlad.

Folk from the North east are allowed to be polite, ignore these poorly bred ruffians....

Default hi all

hi
yes im from the northeast, and brought up on a very hard estate, also drank in a pub nicknamed the bloodtub, if you did not get in there by 8 oclock, you did not get a fight. seen it all and more, have had a very colourful life, can live in any place in the area, but i love the council estate i was born and bred on.
cannot count the tats on my body, or the scars inflicted in my youth, but ive never lost my roots, and help the people around me, yes ive done well, have tennants, mothers+fathers and there children and i hope there children.
my wife says ive a face to frighten a police dog, and a heart as big as a dustbin lid, its my wife who is buying, the trike for me, or giving me the cash to build it ive many ideas what i want, i can turn a spanner as good as anybody, looked at the showroom trikes nice, but i want something special and reading the posts the only way im going to get it, is to get somebody to build it!!! or build it myself, with the help with things i cannot do from a specialist frame, trike builder.
but i can assure you it will be done, so if you are ever in the northeast in the future, need a cuppa, bacon butty, or a stop over, the fridge is always full of ice cold lager+beer my newly built garage is always open.
thankyou for the welcome to this site, kindest regards

Default New builders

I was at the MAG show in Aberystwyth last weekend and there was a new firm building trikes, they had two hayabusa's and a bandit, what excellent trikes. The company was called West Wales Trike Shack and he said the trikes were for sale in his shop on ebay. Hope this helps
