We are a mom and pop team and have been in the manufacturing, fabrication and art fields for most of our lives. As a couple, we have been married for 35 years and we love hitting the open roads on our bikes and seeing where the wind will lead us. We also have family members that work with us here at Trip Trike that makes it a family affair. I am a member of Hopewell Missionary Baptist Church and enjoy our family time.
Royce and I have been riding together now for several years. As a short woman, I found it boring having to ride behind my husband. I couldn't see over his head so all I could look at was what we had just passed. I tried to ride a motorcycle by myself but between being short and having arthritis, I had problems with that also.
One day I was at a yard sale and found a motorcycle for sale. Royce had been telling me for a long time that he would like to rig me up a pull behind trunk/trailer, trike kit that would also stabilize my motorcycle for me. I went and got him and brought him to see if he thought he could fix this bike up for me like he had been talking about. That was how, through his artistic vision, the Trip Trike was born. A low profile trike kit that has the advantage of stabilizing your motorcycle while, at the same time, not taking away from the beauty of your bike. Royce does all of the building of the Trip Trike from scratch. I am disabled from arthritis, just handle the phone for him.
A lot of people have expressed to me their worries about the cost being so low. They ask, "How can you sell it for that?" The answer is simple. We wanted to ride together but we couldn't afford what was out there. We knew that there were others just like us, especially with the mess our economy has been in. So we keep our overhead down and strive to keep the cost as low as possible. We are very thankful for all that we have and are happy to be putting food on the table. The smiles on peoples faces as they leave on their Trip Trikes is worth more than money can buy!
Another reason for keeping our price below the competition, even though our product is superior, is so that you will have the extra money to ship your bike to us, or bring your bike to us, for the free installation. That way you know that the people who built your kit is installing it with adjustments for the best ride and you don't have to do the labor. Take a mini vacation while we do all the work!
I know that today, 8 years later, you can find trike kits out there for less. I must point out, BUYER BEWARE! I get phone calls where customers have purchased these and it didn't come with wheels and tires, fenders, a mounting kit to actually attach it to their bike. PLEASE, read all the fine print before you buy. Here at Trip Trike, our prices include everything you need to ride!!!
So, do you find that you are having more and more difficulty holding your bike up? Or do you have a bike you haven't even gotten to ride yet because of health issues holding you back? Are you a retired single woman who has always dreamed of hitting the open roads on a motorcycle but are leery of the two wheels? We just may have the answer you all have been looking for. An affordable trike kit that still allows your two wheeler to remain in tact, no modifications are made to it. Easily put on or taken off to be able to ride with or without it. Why not give me a call today and find out more about what we have to offer. We do hope to make your dealing with Trip Trike an enjoyable experience to last a lifetime. We hope you share with your friends where you got your trike kit and if you find the need for another in the future, that you will come back to see us.
I am available by phone most of the time, day or night. It will be rare that you get an answering machine on both numbers and you definitely won't be getting any answering services. Call and talk to ME today!
