Motor Trike, Inc.

Hit the logo to visit the Motor Trikes Website or scroll past the introduction to view archived editorial content for this sponsor.
Motor Trike, Inc. manufactures conversions that transform two-wheeled motorcycles into three-wheeled trikes. Motor Trike is one of the nation's leading trike conversion manufacturers. In the Powersports industry, a trike is a motorcycle that promises the thrill of the wind in your face, while also offering the stability and comfort of riding on three wheels.

Motor Trike, Inc. began in 1994 with two employees in a quaint 1,800 square foot facility in downtown Troup, Texas. We moved to our present location in May, 1995. Our current location was once an old meat packing plant, made up of a 12,000 square foot facility on three acres of land. Over the 15 years in this location we have undergone 9 expansions and now function in 108,000 square feet of operating space on 75 acres. Our manufacturing plant has two sub-assembly lines, three robotic welders and fifteen downdraft paint and prep booths. 

Our products are developed in-house by an exceptional team of engineers with vast knowledge and experience in suspension and chassis design. That experience comes from work on one NASCAR Sprint Cup Championship, three Road & Track Formula SAE Shootout victories, and the creation, design, and manufacturing of the Thoroughbred Motorsports Stallion. We believe that this gives us a level of expertise unmatched by anyone else in our industry. We are proud of their accomplishments and confident that you will be pleased with the results of their efforts throughout our product line.

As a family owned and operated company, we take pride in the work we do and the products that we make. Motor Trike is a true manufacturing facility, not just a trike parts assembly plant. We are open Monday-Friday, from 8 am - 5 pm. We encourage you to visit our plant at any time to witness firsthand how our exceptional team of people create, design, and manufacture the trike conversions that you will be proud to ride.

TRIKE REVIEW: Motor Trike Adventure

GL1800 Gold Wing conversion

Last year, I planned an adventure for my inbound trip to Daytona Bike Week. I didn’t want to start in the frigid temps of New England, and I didn’t have enough time in my schedule for a complete cross-country journey from one of the motorcycle manufacturer’s home bases on the West Coast. A start point halfway across the country would do just fine.
