Default Favourite trikes

I've always loved trikes but only ridden one.
A Hayabusa trike

How about sharing your favourites? Photos, videos, whatever.

Tim Cotterells trike is cool. It's been around for a while but still not lost any cool.

For me the Ultimate trike has and always will be Megalomania by Chris Ireland, or Depserate Dan as he was known by when he was building chops and Trikes....

I believe it was used for the intro of the Gladiators TV game show at the time but Ihaven't been able to find a clip.

I always liked that from seeing it in the mags (AWOL, BSH???) to seeing it in the flesh at the Bully.

Thanks HOS it went better than it looked (not hard) it did over one hundred thousand miles in 14 years then I sold it for a grand. It was more fun than anything I've ever ridden or driven. Mainly cos it didn't matter if I broke it.

I got through three engines (they were cheaper than a gasket set) two gearboxes and shattered a clutch through over revving it. Amazingly instead of losing drive it locked up totally and I rode it home changing gear without a clutch.

Harry, it's great fun being resourceful for bits and building stuff. To sell it for a grand after having that much fun out if it takes the mick!
Can I see a Honda Comstar front wheel on it?

Err yes not the best wheel in the world. Having carefully read the bit where it says not to dismantle the wheel, I drilled out the rivets,holding the spokes to the rim one at a time and replaced them with bolts and nylock nuts. After that it held together through the worst abuse I could throw at it.

That's certainly a well thought out and engineered solution for the Honda wheel.
Bolting it together is probably why it held together?

I have very briefly ridden a Hayabusa trike.
The owner I haven't seen online in a few years. He was on the NABD forum but he wasn't on there either until it closed last year.
So I hope Paul is ok wherever he is?

I went down on my S/C Busa to meet Paul in north London and for a few of us to ride down to the Trike Day at the Ace cafe. It was a great day

I will find some photos of his trike and it is stunning !!!!

This is obviously not his trike, but gives you an idea....

The first one: The use of the fisheye lens doesn't do it justice. The other two I think just makes it look like some souped up industrial rat fork lift! not my cup of tea I'm afraid....

That narrow back end works ok. I bet the chain doesn't take much to stretch though....

Friar that's what I love about the whole modified bike scene, that everyone has different and similar ideas about what looks or feels right.

That is what got me into customs all those years ago, magazines like Superbike and custombike even before BSH and 100% Biker ever came on the scene, as it were...

Yeah and the only custom bike mags were from the US and all about American choppers. They were very glossy magazines and rammed full of what looked like fantastical creations of great beauty and quality. Eyes on stalks

I remember choppers getting to the state where the creations were completely unrideable, with gold plated engraving everywhere, and twisted girder forks, but bloody lovey to look at....
