The Black Museum

Post by Dr Death » Tue Jan 22, 2013 8:18 pm

Well here it is folks......The Black Museum of Trike building

What we hope you will do is post piccies of the horrors you have found on your or a mates trike after you/they have bought it.

Or..........if you are brave enough gentleman's sausage ups of your own.

Or....disasters you have seen and had to tell some unsuspecting poor so and so about before they kill emselves....

We are coming up to the season and as we all know it really is a case of buyer beware....so to that end....if this section stops one person from buying a bag full of sh*te and or saves their life then we'll have been good little boys and girls....

Only rules.....no names no bl**dy pack drill. Thou shalt not name names of builders or previous owners....break this rule and your post will be deleted....break it twice and you will be deleted.

There will be no personal vendettas or the doctors scythe comes out.

Post and Piccies you lot....this may save some poor b***ers life
There are things out there that scare even me

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.

How on earth would those silly bits hold the engine on/in apart from Anything else??!

Also, if thats the stuff you can see??! Lol

Blue Tac would have done a better job on some of those bits?!! :dummy:

THE MOST DANGEROUS BIT OF MY TRIKE IS THE BIT THAT JOINS THE SADDLE TO THE BARS!!:loco::triker:

I know its not a competition, but think you might have to go some to get worse LOL

this was bought as a trike all looking good, according to someone.

but with reliant van V5 I understand

heavy is good, heavy is reliable, and if it does fail, then hit them with it :caveman:

The only thing wrong with this is the colour, surely blue tac is blue ??

i basically did everything you shouldnt do when buying a trike, i didnt know what i was doing was panicking about my job plus i,d been on the cider when i went on ebay(never a good idea)and yes when it didnt sell i dealt outside ebay (yes i know i got what i deserved) so for any newbies reading this the best advice i could ever give is always always take someone with you who knows what the score is, this is what i saw on ebay
