Here is a picture of my trike my Dad built by hand years ago. It was the first vehicle I drove to high school when I was 16. That is my tear drop trailer my Dad bought for me, but he thought the tonuge weight was too much for me and he sold it. Dam it. I actually slept in that trailer at BOR 4 or 5 here is Sac Ca, not sure which one. Its was a long time ago. I would say the first picture is dated around 1977 or 1978, the others are within this last year. This could also be put in the project section because it is a non running project.

My Dads Corvair powered trike. It was better detailed and also had more power than my trike. Thats also my old black Honda 50 in the back ground. Man I tore up a lot of dirt with that bike.

Come to Olivehurst/Linda..... trikes are everywhere with big fat long-bearded fellers in leather jackets pimpin' em. I guess they're the crowd who got too old for the Harleys, can't keep em balanced anymore--- need some tri-pod action.

Here is another trike my Dad built. It is powered by a Renault 4 cylinder. When my Dad first started this trike, it was a disaster. Some of the current trike builders stopped by and laughed at it. Well my Dad was pissed, even if they were right. It was a disaster. They helped my Dad build it into a nice and safe ride. It was sold to my Uncle Rick in LA and its where abouts are unknown.

Thats my Dad standing behind the half Bug trike that belonged to local country singer Billy Stack. It was completely covered with blue and white vinyl seat material. Not very cool today, but back in the day, it was the ****.

This is my Dads purple trike. My Dad always wanted his ride to be better looking than the next guy, so he added every little chrome piece he could find.
