The Custom SS Trike: a Big Wheel for Grownups

By July 28, 2009

Follow me on:

Custom SS Trike If you think Victory and Harley's trike offerings are just a tad too restrained (!!), take a look at this bad boy. Manufactured by Olmax Fabrication LLC, the SS Trike is reminiscent of the Big Wheels we rode as kids-- except this one can be adjusted to accommodate riders between 5' and 6' 2" tall in less than five minutes. Oh, and it's got a 24-inch front wheel, two 14-inch rear wheels, and a choice of powerplants from Ultima, S&S or TP alongside an optional race-ready General Motors Powerglide-sourced automatic transmission.

Also available is an air-ride suspension, a solo seat with enclosed trunk, and multiple trim treatments. If your personal style is more... ahem, quiet and understated, the flames can be ditched for solid primary colors.

The SS Trike is entered in the production class of the 2009 AMD Official World Championship of Custom Bike Building, and will be on display at next week's Sturgis Rally. For more info, go to SS Trike's official website.

Dude, that is really sweet. A bit over the top on the flames but incredible work.

Does it have the “spin out” handle?

Howdy! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering which blog
platform are you using for this site? I’m getting fed up
of WordPress because I’ve had issues with hackers and I’m looking at alternatives for another platform.

I would be fantastic if you could point me in the direction of a good
