Pete's 1970 Home Built Trike
Trike started life as a 1970 Beetle
and I think it had a "hard life"
with 9 previous owners. The body/floor
was totally rusted out, although it
was drivable - just! The vehicle was
rolled onto its side and the "gas
axe" deployed to separate the engine/gearbox/torsion
bar/rear suspension from the "dead"
bodywork. After several months of bending
new steel tubing to form a new chassis
to my design. Being disabled with oste
an all new "hand made" upholstery
done for me by "Glenn". The
front end was salvaged from a Honda
VF750, although the actual handlebars
are my own design and make. This Trike
is going to give me and my family loads
of fun this year, maybe even more now
we have just bought a VW "Wedgie"
Camper that will be towing the Trike
around when needed.
