Powered by a 5.7L 350 Chevrolet Edelbrock motor, these trikes are the ultimate in power and excitement and taking a ride on one is a definite bucket list experience! Due to the fact that the trikes are registered as convertible cars and come with seat belts, there is no requirement to wear a helmet, so you can enjoy the wind in your face and experience pure adrenaline.
