Tri-Magnum, Trike | Thu, 01 Jan 2009 Posted by : Shannon Larratt
Richard’s been working on this Tri-Magnum — one of the best looking trike designs out there — for a while now, built around a Kawasaki LTD 1000J rear and a VW Beetle front end. Reverse is handled by a 2000 lb winch with 4″ rubber tires mounted on the drum — the winch is lowered to the tire using a linear actuator with 200 pounds of force. He’s hoping to have it on the road by summer 2009 — an impressive feat given that the work’s been done in a tent! “After a good amount of bondo and sanding it will make a good daily driver,” he says.
For more information on the Tri-Magnum (or to get your own plans and build one), visit R.Q. Riley — they have lots of great designs available in addition to this one.
