THE QUAD IS DONE!!!

 

The Quad Trike is an Original 4 Cylinder Custom Harley Trike.


 It started with the Revell 12th scale Torch Chopper Kit. I added an Extra Engine & Scratchbuilt Custom Body, Stretched the frame and Converted it into a 3 Wheeler...

The Gastank was Sectioned and the Cyclops Headlight is from Ed Roth's Mysterion.

The Handle bars were extended a little more than an inch and the Rear Wheel & Tire are used on the front.

The Quad Body is made from Sheet Plastic and two rear Fenders. The Exhaust Pipes are made from aluminum tubing and the Taillight is a Rhinestone.

MORE QUAD PHOTOS!!!

 

I used Black Felt to cover the Seat and the Flame Decals are from the Torch Kit. The Air Cleaners are from Replicas & Minatures.

The Rear Wheel & Tires are from the Parts Box and the Rear Axle is from an 1/16th scale 1957 Chevy.

I used Testors Lime Ice Paint for the Quad.

I almost gave up then, I finally found  "Quad" Decals, they were in an Olds Aerotech Kit!

QUAD TRIKE!!!

 

I used two 1/25th scale wheels and part of a Star Wars X-Wing Fighter to make the Converter and Transmission for the Two BiG Harley Engines!

The Headers were made from the Cord from a Computer Mouse.

Beautifully designed & built ! I thoroughly enjoyed watching this come together. The only thing l would do is add a circle of BMF to the cam(?) covers to brighten up the lower part of the engine & tie it in with the heads & push rods. The lime ice looks great on this.
