What is the Roadstercycle?
The short answer: A three-wheeled reverse trike that looks and rides like nothing else on the market.
The long answer: It is the creation of Jack Fleming, who built the first Roadstercycle in a one-car garage in Redondo Beach, California. This was around 1996. The first bike was powered by a GPZ-1100 engine from a retired police bike and wore a full fiberglass body. Later iterations carried the same body but had a little beefier powerplants - a Chevy 4.3L V6 and a Chevy 350 V8. Both with automatic transmissions. In the early 2000's a new design was born and paved the way for the latest version. The bike to the left was the first "naked" Roadstercycle and is motivated by a 88 CI Harley V-Twin. Soon after, two more Roadstercycles were built using Yamaha V-Max bikes as donors.
These bikes were all built as a hobby to feed a desire to build a motorcycle that is fun and unique. People began to take notice at bike nights and shows. An overwhelmingly positive response was the verification needed to believe a business based around the Roadstercycle could be a success. Jack, who is always busy with some type of motorcycle or car-related project, offered the opportunity to his son Jay and took it from there. Manufacture of The Roadstercycle was moved to Central Oklahoma where space was plenty and the centralized location allows for easy access to either coast, or border to border.
While always evolving, the current concept of the Roadstercycle will be sure to last. Think of it as a three-wheeled hot rod, reminiscent of the early hot rods with exposed engines - only the necessities and tons of character.
