The V-Max Roadstercycle


What would the girlfriend have to say about this...?

What you see here is Fleming Engineering’s '34 Roadstercycle trike, fitted with a Yamaha V-Max engine and five-speed gearbox. All controls on this single-seater trike are handlebar mounted. The '34 runs 120/60-ZR17 Avon tyres at the front, while the rear is a monstrous 300/35-18 Avon Venom. Styling, in our opinion, is quite basic – one big engine sitting right up front and… very little else.


The engine looks impressive, but they could've worked harder on the styling

Fleming also make a Harley-engined trike – the '32 Roadstercycle. Both are street legal in the US and can be registered as motorcycles. More details and pics on the official website here.
