This Roadsmith Joker Trike is Wild!

White Bear Lake, MN (November 9, 2011) – Each month Roadsmith selects a special “Trike of the Month” to celebrate the amazing modifications that their customers perform on their trikes… and November’s trike is a real show stopper.

This month’s winner was submitted by Brian Roland at Central Motor Sports Honda in Mt. Pleasant, MI. This trike is an extraordinary example with more bling and custom accessories than you could ever imagine.  The owner’s name is Jack (Joker) Burt (Joker is his road name) and this incredible trike was a labor of love for him along with all of the people that helped to make his dream a reality.  The paint, based on the character from Batman, was done by Hogger @ Hogger’s Custom Paint and the unique rear spoiler was hand pounded out of solid aluminum by Bill’s Custom Fab.

Some of the amazing custom items on this trike are the Green LED lights all over and under the trike body and floor boards as well as additional white LED’s shining down on the chrome front wheel. There are so many electrical components on it that the dealer had to install a second fuse box just to accommodate everything.

One of the most distinctive features of this trike are the eyes on the trunk door (the “Heath Ledger Joker”). The eyes are working running and brake light while the lights in the spoiler are run brake and turn.  All of the dash, rear speakers, lower cowl, and all of the removable frame pieces were “wing blinged” at a company that custom dips the pieces so that they look like carbon fiber.   The rear rims are Boyd Coddington chrome wheels and the exhaust was fully custom built with carbon fiber cans.

All in all, an incredibly striking, custom trike that turns heads everywhere it goes… proving there are no limits when it comes to imagination.

Roadsmith is based in White Bear Lake, MN where it manufactures and distributes twelve different trike conversion kits for Honda and Harley-Davidson motorcycles.  They are also represented by over a hundred dealers in the U.S. and Canada as well as their own retail locations, The Trike Shop at Destination Daytona and on Beach Street in Daytona Beach, FL.

 

Do You Mind if We Share This Taxi Ma’am?

 

Entrepreneurs in foreign countries have already been using motorcycles as taxi cabs for years especially in the heavily congested parts of Asia.  It’s a trend that never caught on in the US.  But now Moto Limos believes American’s are ready and they’ve chosen the two cities with the densest populations,  New York and Los Angeles.

Moto Limo hopes to lure the busy business traveler to it’s services by pitching that when others are stuck in traffic, you’ll get to your destination on time.  blue Tooth helmets will be provided for productivity and they’ll provide rainsuits during inclimate weather and a blanket for those New York winters.

Moto-Limo says they can also carry some luggage for you.  Click here for luggage carrying ability

You can  also request a trailer with the taxi and will come with at least 15 year professional experienced rider. This is a club service so you can expect to pay a membership fee of  $125 to $150 depending on your choice of bikes and services.  It could cost you around $90 for the Gold Wing, that also depends on your membership status.
