What type are you looking for , Bike derived or car , Have you ever riden a bike , and what you using it for . Do you want passenger bench seat or single seater , hard tail or suspension, full frame or swing arm conversion. Prices vary from all these different types but as a whole start from 2000 quid for a good road worthy simple trike, any thing cheaper and expect a doer upper and even then you have to remember these are home made and don't come with manuals , a good custom job then look from 6000 upwards to skys the limit but has a whole the more they cost reflects the effort put in. Good luck but do your homework first so you know what you want before buying the first thing that comes along, i'm partial to VW bug trikes where my mate Spider preferes bike based trikes and owns an xj 900 reliant hard tail. everyones different have a good look around.

Welcome..

Take the question over to the trike section..

And maybe search the forum for 'buying a trike'

John.
