1980 VW Powered Trike For Sale   Price: 8,000.00
This trike was built by the president of the NWI chapter of BTW around 2002. It features a very reliable and peppy 1500cc SP engine, almost new Mickey Thompson rear tires, almost new brakes and clutch. It comes w/lotsa nice hand fabbed aluminum diamond plate, and features BMW side bags, a Harley Davidson rear luggage box, and fully adjustable front and rear seats. Also comes w/a poly fuel tank that'll never rust, rot or corrode. I serviced this trike for an elderly gentleman who seldom rode it b/c it had a problem w/it's clutch that he never wanted to spend the money to fix, and then hadn't driven it and stored it for the last several years b/c of his bad knees. We got it out of storage, properly repaired it's clutch issues, and several other little ones that occur when anything's stored for years, and now here it is, a turnkey, race ready driver w/still some riding season left!
This thing is rock solid w/1/4" side plate gusseting professionally welded at every weld joint for reinforcement. This trike originally had a 40hp engine when it was built and sold to the elderly gentleman, who is the original and only owner. The origina 40hp engine that it was sold to him with began having problems, so we upgraded it to a very reliable 1500cc SP engine for him, and he only rode it for 1 season after that. This trike is built so solidly that it will handle a much larger engine w/no problem, and has obviously never been "beat on" nearly as hard as it was ridden by my boys in our video of it which can be seen at...
