I went over to Keystone Lake Park this morning to meet up with some very old friends. I'm talking 1st grade and up here! Before I get into the history there, anyone heard of the BTW? That is the 'Brotherhood of the Third Wheel', trike owners to those not in the know.
Anyway, my oldest friend time wise, got in contact with me some time back. He & I met in the 1st grade and were inseparable until life forced my family to move. So he & I go back to 1954! He gave me a shout that he would be at Keystone Lake this weekend for the BTW gathering. He and his son have been into the trike scene for a while and are now marketing their creation. Got some pics below!
Along with Wayne and his wife Sarah came another old friend I haven't seen for 30 years. Dale (Pete) and Kathy were folks we 'partied' with way back when. These folks are friends for life!
Here's some pics.
This is Kathy's trike that Wayne built. Volkswagen powered!
This is Dales Citation powered trike. Also built by Wayne.
This is the first one Wayne built using his own design. 4.3 S-10 drive train.
And here is his newest creation with a LS-1 installed!
This is Wayne and his wife Sarah.
For those of you into bikes, check out his front suspension. No oil filled tubes up there. An air bag takes care of that duty.
Here's some pics of other 'trikes I saw there.
This is Dale & Kathy
