Tricycle

Who all makes the tricycle?

If you know a custom show let me know, or if it is already being manufactured.

What all have you heard about tri's, are they even worth the buy?

Looking for my dad in the future once he retires.

I saw a dude ridin on one of those before, it looked goofy as can be, worse than a trike because it sits the bike in the middle which looks like it has training wheels. it looked sad indeed.

I know why it was made, and yes, the guy riding the one I saw looked like he was old enough as he didnt wanna worry with falling over.
To me though, I would have to say no to 4 wheels on my motorcycle
I guess to him, he still has his freedom and can enjoy the ride still and I totally understand that mentality indeed.

I don't know of a shop, but my uncle used to have a sick trike when I was a kid. I loved that thing. I'd have one today for sure.

Looked a LOT like this one
