I’ve had my Vmax converted by Nutty Norman and I must say I am very pleased with it. Everything possible has been powder coated (Aerocoat, Great Yarmouth) and it took about 4 months to complete. I bought the original Max from Bike Direct in Bristol . It had no tax or Mot, but the engine was sound, although it sounded a bit different compared to now as the exhaust was being held on with duck tape! The rear end of the Trike is Nutty’s own design using an Mk1 Ford Escort RS 1600 axle, the front headlamp & seat (as well as a few other accessories) is from Exactrep, while the handle bars and grips are from Highway hawk.

The Artwork on the tank was done by Darren Horton, which I think really brings the piece together.

The photos are the original bike and the finished project to date.

At the moment the Trike is stripped down, the engine covers are being powered coated, and the exhaust has been extended so it comes all the way out of the back.  I’ve fitted some LED lights to the mud guards which are now having some more art work by Darren Horton. Also many other little things that should keep me busy through the winter, like R1 Callipers and forward controls, colour coded coolant pipes, Z-Boost, Tim’s pressure gauge and colour coded brake/clutch lines and the list goes on.

Darren's Trike

After having a bike accident and ending up having to use a wheel chair, I decided to build a trike. I bought a 1997 VMax and over a period of 12 months turned it into a trike.
It has an electronic gear selector and dual brakes on the handlebars.
I have designed it to put my wheelchair on the back.
I used a Robin Reliant axle and put a rear disc on it, using Nova front discs and Golf GTi rear calipers.
It has straight through exhausts to carbon rear race cans,etc.
 
I would like to change the front end to u.s.d. forks and front wheel.

‘The Bad Mistress”

I acquired her 3 years ago from a former lover who had seriously neglected her. It has taken a lot of tender loving care and quite a bit of cash and beer tokens to get her where she is now.  My bad mistress can still be difficult but when she’s good, she’s very good indeed.
