In the summer of 2012 I began a project to design and build from scratch a reverse trike motorcycle. A reverse trike (or RT) is a three wheel motorcycle with two front wheels and one rear wheel. My project is based on a few popular RT designs such as the T-Rex, Venom and G2. However, I am making numerous changes in order to use as many off-the-shelf components as possible as well as some aesthetic changes.

You can follow my RT build by selecting one of the Chapter Summaries from the menu below. These summaries are listed by chapters and you can easily see how the RT is constructed. Each chapter has a description of the building steps and a number of pictures to help visualize how it was done.
