‘Big wheels, keep on rollin.’ Look at the 24-inch front hoop on the SS Trike, a new three-wheeler that Olmax Fabrication is looking to put into production.
Olmax Fabrication LLC., the manufacturer of the SS Trike, introduces the production version of their trike at the 2009 AMD Official World Championship of Custom Bike Building located at Champions Park in Sturgis, SD. The SS Trike resembles the classic “Big Wheel” Chopper-style design that we all rode as a kid, which is sure to put a smile on your face no matter how old of a kid you are.
Builder Jason Nieman is entered in the Production Class at the World Championships and will be competing for the gold with other storied manufacturers like Brass Balls Bobbers and Choppers, OCC Motorcycles, Big Bear Choppers and Big Dog Motorcycles just to name a few.
The SS Trike comes with a long list of race-inspired features including composite body, a 24-inch Olmax Fabrication polished front rim wrapped in a Metzeler rubber, American Racing 14-inch rear wheels and a Wire-plus digital speedometer. In addition, the trike sports an American Suspension front end, a six speed or automatic transmission, and a choice of power from Ultima, S&S or TP.
The popular automatic transmission option features a bullet-proof design lifted from automotive racing applications, which met Olmax Fabrication LLC’s reduced weight and packaging requirements. The design is sourced from a General Motors Powerglide system that is a current racing standard, which delivers smooth and consistent shifts.
Extending in the race-inspired theme is a custom 2-into-1 performance pipe that connects into a chambered muffler. The dual exhaust pipe at the rear of the trike delivers a healthy rumble that is a cross between a muscle car and a sweet-stroking Harley.
The SS Trike is designed to comfortably accommodate a variety of enthusiasts from 5′ to 6’2″ tall in fewer than five minutes. Selecting two different seat heights and three different foot control locations is a snap and easy to do.
The SS Trike is available in all primary colors. Additional options include graphics, Wire-Plus digital speedo, air-ride suspension, a solo seat with enclosed trunk, multiple trim treatments and a black or polished engine.
