WHile searching for Guzzi Trikes I came across this Cali Vintage..........





Looks sweet. Turns out that it ain't a Trike at all, but a Fourk! 

It has a bolt on pair of wheels and running boards courtesy of a mob called Richland Roadster. You keep your rear wheel, (subtly hidden by the rear crossmember.) and bolt on one of these....


.......... comes with running lights and stop lights. You don't need to modify your frame or anything, just bolt on the kit and remove it if you wanna go back to two wheels. 

Here's a shot of the rear view. You can glimpse the bikes driving wheel still in place. 



anyways, I was wondering if anyone out there has done a Richland Roadster Four wheel (Fourk) Trike conversion. Please share your experience. 

The Cali Vintage above was, I think, done by the company itself. The "Owner" who gushes about it in their Testimonials, (I found upon researching a bit) actually works for the company, so I'm not sure how truthful the testimonial is.

There are a few other American companies who also do bolt-on trike (Fourk) conversions, Voyager and a few others I can't remember right now.

Anyone Downunder done anything like this?

I think you might find the 0 to 60 figure a bit dissapointing.

Better 5 minutes late in this world than years early in the next.

It is, it's the "mulo meccanico".

Not much online info on it, unfortunately.
