Default Frankenglide

The latest project going on in Fab Frank's garage is the Frankenglide. As some of you already know, we inherited his dads trike. His dad bought this 09 Motor Trike conversion new in 09 at Bike Week in Daytona. The bike originally started out as an EGUC.
His dad added reverse to it and a few add-ons here and there but never really rode it much as he began to fall ill. As it stands right now, it has a whopping 7000 miles on it and I would guess that we probably put 2000 of those on it ourselves.

So the plan is to turn it back into a 2 wheel bike. We'll keep the trike kit and store it away in case one of us needs it in the future. Frankies no spring chicken, ya know....lol! But the reverse is staying on...haha This is lazy mans dream.

We've been gathering parts here and there in order to do so. We picked up a rear wheel & a rear fender from the forum, a new swing arm from ebay, will use the stock bags from Frankies RK Ruby (Ruby is like an organ donor....lol Her parts are everywhere!), RufusBarkely donated a set of frame (strut) covers, and theres probably a few more things Im forgetting.

Im sure there will be motor work done as this is a 96 and if y'all know Frankie, he likes his go fast bikes. Paint will probably be a down he road thing. Right now we are just looking at getting it back on the road. And yes, since this is a batwinger, the goal is to hopefully pick up inner/outer fairings cheap and have a REAL bike....lol

So, this truly is a 'Frankenglide'

Tracy I think you should take that shell from the trike, attach to some wheels and trick it out as a new trailer for you know who.....

I guess it's too late to say, "Leave it a 3 wheeler!"

Have fun with it (goes without saying, right?)

Funny you should mention that....the other day Myrtle went out to the garage with me and a friend of ours, and the trunk of the trike was open. She tried to squeeze her fatass in it because she knew we were getting ready to go ride! We've created a monster!!!
