Hi all. Found this forum whilst looking for info online.

I'm 32, been riding bikes for 12 years, currently own a 2009 Suzuki intruder but due to ongoing issues with my back I am moving to a trike (always wanted one).

I was literally a couple of days away from buying my first trike when my dad tells me I can have his for free, which is great. But it has been off the road for 22 years so there may be work ahead of me.

Anyway, here I am.

Welcome to the forum Mate! You'll find us a firendly bunch, and a very small forum membership from what it once was, but you'll get some straight answers, some silly answers (usually from me!) and abovee all honest answers. If you can take a joke then all the better. There's some good chaps on here that know their stuff if you get stuck and need help in your trike.

So welcome aboard Matey!

I remember a trike not dissimilar to that made from a mini front end, The Stimson Scorcher

A mate of mine built that years ago. It still turns a wheel occassionally. Tis a hoot! Fekking ugly, but a hoot all the same.

Hello Also, welcome to the forum
I know nothing about trikes and even less about Veedubs, so I may be of only very limited help.

I always try and help if I can.
But if I don't know then I'll say I don't know.
That's the fair way of doing it. We all know how expensive bad decisions on bikes can be.
