Our electric reverse
Our electric revers can be fitted during or after a build with prior knowledge on our conversions.
Superior to starter style motors, we use a strong reliable winch motor that will not trip out under load. While in neutral, lift the lever to engage and press the momentary button to reverse. Simples.
It is perfect for jap, euro and British conversions that have Chain or belt drive.
I travelled many miles to see all the different models and the different ways the axles and seat arrangements could be done.
I realised that the most important aspect of a trike was the build quality.
After seeing lots of trikes I finally decided on a company called Trike Design (just off the A470) near Cardiff. They are real perfectionists.
I decided on the style of trike I wanted and it took about four fittings to make it just right for me. Fortunately thay had an NABD rep doing some work there and he was a great help.
They put the throttle on the left-hand side, the front and rear brakes were linked together on the left foot pedal, the clutch remained where it was.
I also had footplates fitted and a Klicktronic gear-changer kit.
The trike handles great, it took a bit of getting used to go around islands as the steering gets a bit heavy but I like the very positive feel to the steering. I will be looking to upgrade to one of their easy steer options in the future.
The brakes are as good as any bike or car I have driven, they fitted a boyas to balance the brakes and are very easy to adjust to suit your style of riding.
