Reverse Trike Revolution, Inc Release A New “ Dvd Rtr1000h Roadster Build."
HARRIMAN, T.N. Mar. 23 // -- Reverse Trike Revolution, Inc. announced today the Release of a NEW DVD “ RTR1000H ROADSTER BUILD.”
The RTR1000H REVERSE TRIKE ROADSTER was built using a 1976 Honda Gold Wing, the latter model Goldwings with the electric reverse, are an even better choice. The Gold Wing's 6-cylinder opposed engine is smooth-running, and develops maximum torque at a comparatively low rpm which is better for an automotive application, but still results in a very fuel-efficient vehicle. The reverse trike consists of a stripped motorcycle, minus the front fork assembly, using a simple tubular steel framework, which is then attached to a VW Beetle front axle beam.
The RTR1000H REVERSE TRIKE ROADSTER’s design is both functional and aggressive. The donor motorcycle can be (either air-cooled or water-cooled)
Operating the RTR1000H REVERSE TRIKE ROADSTER a very UNIQUE experience. Shifting is done with an aircraft style control stick that is positioned between the bucket seats. The handlebar controls from the motorcycle are mounted on the shifter, where they are within easy reach. The motorcycle clutch lever is also mounted on the shifter. To shift gears, squeeze the clutch lever, then move the stick either forward or reverse, depending on whether you are up shifting or down shifting. The shifter is connected via a short cable to the foot-lever that is normally used to shift gears on the motorcycle, so the shift pattern is identical. Accelerator and brake pedals are mounted on the floor, just like those of a conventional vehicle.
Due to its center of gravity, RTR1000H ROADSTER under steers, just like most conventional vehicles. When pushed hard into a turn, the reverse trike will float to the outside, rather than spin out. Because of its low center of gravity, the margin of safety against rollover is equivalent, or better than a standard automobile.
NO TUBING BENDER REQUIRED! All YOU NEED is a WELDER, and a few common hand tools. a pipe cutter is needed to lower front axle, if so desired.
With OUR PROCESS, it only took 1 weekend to build a running driving REVERSE TRIKE. To be street legal, it will take you another weekend to complete. Time to construct is based on one of our employee's builds. YES, it was their first time.
Length: 140 inch
Height: 47 inch
Front Brakes: Drum
Rear Brakes: Disc
Curb Weight: Approx. 1100 lbs
Ground Clearance: 4-1/2 inch
Turning Circle: 28 feet
Fuel Capacity: 5 U.S. gallons
Seating: Two person, side by side bucket seats.
Power Train: 1976 Honda Gold Wing, latter model with electric reverse would be preferable. Could be built using a bike as small as, a 500cc, with reduced performance, but greater fuel economy.
Power: 82hp @ 7500rpm according to the motorcycles manufacturer.
Front Suspension: VW Beetle axle beam.
Construction Cost: Approximately $3,000.00, plus a donor motorcycle. Using mostly salvaged parts, instead of mostly new, we believe our Reverse Trike can be built for very little, Possible as little as $1,000.00, plus a donor motorcycle, or even less if you already have a motorcycle.
