Trike of the Month June 2013

Post by Dr Death »

Humungous aplogies to everyone especially all who took the time and trouble to send piccies in when I sent out my last plea via the dreaded e mail thingie doodar.

I have had many and various problems trying to upload everything. I have found a way to beat the machine and we have eventually arrived.....a little out of breath but nevertheless we are here.....

This month our three Trikes have only one thing in common....they are black.

Trike No 1
This belongs to B9Triker
This is my Desperate Dan "Deviant" trike from the Chris Ireland stables built in 1994. She has been fitted with a VW 1600 recon engine and gearbox from a 1973 VW - 1 owner. She's on a Preying Mantis chassis, replaced original Honda forks 5 years ago, not sure what these forks are from, p'raps someone can tell me. Lovely ride, goes well, oh and her name's Queenie cos she gets a bit imperious if she doesn't want to go.

This nation wasn't given to our forefathers, it was wrought over a 1000 years of bloody war and the efforts of those who came before.
Let it not be us who bears the sin, of giving it away to the enemy within.

No 3 for me

Post by Greylag »

I voted No 3. I liked the lines of it, the back wheels and the storage space, I don't particularly like tassles but I liked the rest.

Regards
Dave

You only live once. But if you do it right, once is enough. Do it big, or not at all.

I seem to be the only one that likes the wonder and simplicity of No. 2
