Story

The bike was given to Troy of "Maple Ridge Cycle" or it was off to the dump. The bike was then later givin to me under the pretext that it would be built full on custom. First to go was the back half! Keeping the front original, I grafted on a Norco Sekine so that all the cool stuff could be added. IE 3" rear tire, Three pce crank, fat fenders, you get the idea. Once the body mods were done, it was off to the poweder coater "Rainbow Powder Coating" behind KMS. the frame was done in black and the rims, bars, and chain guard were coated in the new two tone Chrysler colour "Good to go" orange tone. I still have a few other ideas to add onto the bike like a shifter but time will tell. The bike is a real big hit with the older folk who offer to buy it all the time. Its just too much fun to give it up and besides..... it holds alot of beer up front!

Yeah! I have never seen a cooler trike, you really are a master. It has both a modern and a late 19th century sense of style and It's drop dead gorgeous to me!

Too cool...

I know I've had this on the site for I don't know how long now, but EVERY time I look through the Reader's Rides section I see it again... You've got to figure a way to get this out for the Solstice ride or something!
