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.

White Bear Lake, MN ( June 13, 2011)- Finally! After months of anticipation and speculation about what form it would take, the new 2012 Gold Wings arrived in dealerships around the country. Enthusiasts were relieved to finally get their hands on the new Honda flagship and it wasn’t long before they were looking for a trike conversion that would nicely complement their new ride. Roadsmith Trikes, having been in the trike business for 35 years, was ready and waiting when the new “Wings” arrived in the U.S. and immediately went to work creating their vision of the new trike.
Working until the last possible minute in order to effectively address each and every detail of the new model’s systems and design, Roadsmith introduced their new 2012 Gold Wing Trike at this year’s Americade Rally in Lake George, NY on June 6th.

White Bear Lake, MN ( May 25, 2011)- The unmistakable look of the Indian Motorcycle has been turning heads for over a 110 years and the Indian Chief has always been the most iconic of the tribe. It was with this in mind that legendary trike company, Roadsmith Trikes, took on this model as their newest design and initial foray into this brand of motorcycle trike conversion.
Following Indian’s recent sale to Polaris Industries, it’s a sure bet that this brand will receive a much needed boost from its new owners and, quite possibly, a return to its former popularity and status. Knowing this, Roadsmith’s design team went to great lengths to capture every nuance of the design and personality of this easily recognizable motorcycling legend.
With its swooping rear fenders and graceful lines, this new trike design continues the look and feel of the original while, at the same time, creating a comfortable and utilitarian three-wheeled version. Complete with a spacious trunk (requiring only one hand to open) and fully independent suspension, this new model offers all of the comfort and convenience one would expect from a Roadsmith. Options include the company’s proprietary AccuRideTM Automatic Leveling Suspension System, as well as a host of other convenient and stylish options and accessories.
