Mac Trike
Introducing our new “Hot Rod V8 Trike”!

I’ve been a long time rider and, with my knee problems, decided to look into purchasing a trike for our riding pleasure. After riding several of the trikes offered, I decided to take the time to design and build my own.

First, I wanted it to be comfortable. This means, a good ride, the least amount of heat as possible, have a good range as far as fuel economy and enough power to pull the hills with a trailer, and IT must have the “LOOK” of a True Hot Rod!!

So the Process began, in July of 2012, starting with some drawings, the concept of a true Hot Rod V8 Trike took off from there. This is what our vision has produced, the “MAC TRIKE” from Macs Hot Rod Shop.

The basic plan was to stretch the chassis, move the engine forward, allowing the heat to dissipate from the engine area before it burns the hair off your inner legs. The front of the body acts as an air scoop, mixing the fresh air with the hot air of the engine, deflecting it under the body as the trike is in motion.

As for the radiator, I decided the heat waves from other models that run a forward radiator was something we had to change. So, we designed our body to house the radiator and act as a shroud to deliver the hot used air out the rear of the trike.

These two major changes allow my trike to be a much cooler ride than my Ultra Classic is.

As far as drivability, our thoughts were that we wanted the Trike to be very drivable. Not something so wild that you were scared to crank on the throttle. To make it drivable and as efficient as possible, we like to run between a 2:73 and a 3:00 gear. Making trike very drivable, allowing the rear four bars to hook up while keeping the front end firmly planted.

If you have any questions or would like to discuss purchasing one of our kits. Or want to have us custom build your Mac Trike, shoot me an email or give me a call at 402 305 2863

Thanks !!
