Testimonials - Glen Austin
WARNING!!! Three wheelers are considered the world’s most dangerous vehicle. If for any reason you actually believe that crap then you should stick to four wheelers. After all, that is what they are made for: people who can't handle trikes. All ATVs, 3- or 4-wheeled, can be dangerous if used improperly or without proper instruction. All riders pictured on the website are expert or professional riders. Do not attempt anything beyond your own abilities. Please ride with all the appropriate safety riding gear. Respect the environment wherever you ride.
My name is Glen Austin, I am from Newcastle Australia.
I am currently the only TPC owner in Australia, which is a pity as they
are such a good package. I am trying to talk my Brother in Law into building a TPC. I have been riding trikes now on and off
since I was about 14 years old (some 36 Years ago). Back in 2009 I restored a 1984 ATC250R, but after hearing rumors of the TPC I
carried out some research and found they were close to manufacture. This was verified for me by a mutual friend of Bill’s and myself
by the name of Aussieduner (Tony Hobson of Australain ATV Action) on his visit to the USA. I then made the decision to sell
the restored trike and build a TPC.
After placing the order, the frame arrived in August of 2011. My TPC was finished with a
number of aftermarket parts from Lonestar, PRM –ATV, Elka, Maier and finished off with graphics from FTR. I have not had a chance
to ride it on trails as yet, but am enjoying riding the TPC at our local sand dunes.
With the never seen before suspension travel on
a trike, this trike gives the rider great confidence to try many things that I have never or would ever attempt on a vintage trike.
I have trouble keeping my youngest son off it as he likes the power of the Honda water cooled 450. I have looked at some other conversions
and in my opinion they appear somewhat agricultural looking. I am sure that this is how Honda themselves would have built a modern
trike and Bill has done a great job in making all of the parts from the TRX450 fit, including the electrical items where they can
not be damaged.
I am sure Bill is continuously striving to improve this great product and if you are considering building one, I assure
you go ahead, they are a great machine.
