    Default Trike fabrication in Lahore

    I am considering converting one of my Kawasaki KE175s into a 3 wheeler/ trike. Want to have 2 full sized ie 18" wheels at the rear.
    The purpose of this project is,
    1. Make it something between a bike and a jeep.
    2. To be used on the mountains mostly.
    3. Make it a bit more comfortable.
    4. Have more space to carry camping equipment.

    I feel two stroke 175 cc has sufficent power and should be able to perform.

    I am looking for the professionals who can do it properly. I have been told of one man in Saddar and another in Bilalgunj by interviewing people on trikes, mostly handicapped.

    Any help/ guidance from friends with experience of bikes and travelling will be appreciated?

    Regards
    Omar

    Since you want to use it on mountains, two wheels is the best option. Though three wheels will give you better and easier control yet you will lose much of the thrill and also the ease to move on difficult terrain like uneven track where you have to balance three wheels instead of two.

    But if you are resolved to do the project, keep you pocket heavily filled. You will need it.

    I have a an identical KE175 two wheeler and would like to checkout the utility of a three wheeler. Have seen many in US but mostly were for highway driving.
    Over here I have seen such three wheelers converted only for physically handicapped; lets see how it turns out.

    Chingchi manufacturers dont have the different design options I am looking for. My trike should be smaller, with standard wheels and only experts of such conversion should be able to do it.
    BTW I have downloaded a few design blue prints of trikes from the net.

    In the seventies and early eighties trikes were the choicest ATVs. All major manufacturers were coming out with models with wide tires and powerfull engines. Ultimately they were replaced by Quads due to the inherent instability of 3 wheelers; though they did enjoy certain benefits too. Now I am not aware of any decent new trilke available.

    As of today; the oldest trike converter Qari sahib of Saddar passed away a few years ago, Ustad Sarwar also passed away. Now they have advised me to approach Ustaad Sharif of Daroghawalla or Younas of Bilalgunj. Lets see how it develops.

    For those interested in trikes I would recommend to type "offroad trike" in youtube and checkout the results.

    Dear PBC members, where r u? I am counting on your help.
