IndyCycle, SportCycle, Trike | Mon, 09 Feb 2009 Posted by : Shannon Larratt
As promised, here is Jeff’s other reverse trike, an IndyCycle, now sold as the SportCycle, originally designed by Jim Musser, and built from plans by enthusiasts like Jeff (although Jeff has deviated a little by installing a Porsche 911 steering rack). He’s got two Wilwood brake master cylinders with a balance bar to adjust front-to-back pressure and one clutch master cylinder, custom Sportcycle wheel spindles, Wilwood aluminum wheel hubs with drilled and slotted rotors with four-piston calipers up front, 16×7 front rims with 205/40 ZR16 tires at the front and a 5.5×17 bike rim with a 205/50 ZR17 car tire at the rear. He’s got a Wilwood quick-release steering wheel, a Kerkie racing seat, Simpson five point seatbeat, and a bike speedo that goes up to 185 mph. The bike powering it is a 1992 Suzuki GSXR 1100 with about 150 HP. Jeff says it handles great and has tons of power.
