Brian Klock set a land speed record on a Triumph Rocket III with a Motor Trike conversion at Bonneville last year. Motor Trike is celebrating its 20th anniversary in October and will be holding a big party at its plant in Troup, Texas.
“In August of 1994, the journey began. We started in an 1800-square-foot building in downtown Troup with two employees and started off on our adventure. We moved into an old meatpacking plant in May of 1995 that was 12,000 square feet on three acres. Today, nine expansions later, we have over 100,000 square feet on over 70 acres with 70 employees,” says Motor Trike President, Jeff Vey. ” We would like to invite you to a celebration on our 20th anniversary and let you see where we make our trikes and meet the people who make all this possible in one place. We promise that you will not be disappointed with what you find when you get here. Please join us for this chapter in our history.”
Motor Trike has many fun and exciting things planned for the 20th Anniversary Celebration. The manufacturing facility will be open for guided tours throughout the day so guests can understand what goes into designing and manufacturing the trike kits and accessories. The World’s Fastest Trike, which is a Triumph Rocket III Touring bike fitted with a Motor Trike conversion body and equipped with a Carpenter Racing motor kit, will be on display. There will also be “best of show” contests with $500 cash prizes to one Motor Trike and a Stallion owner. Owners, Jeff and Diane Vey, will be holding a meet and greet. Live music will be provided by “The Magills.”
Finally, all attendees will be automatically entered into the grand prize drawing to win a one-tone painted Motor Trike kit of their choice. The kit will be installed at the Motor Trike factory in Troup, TX. Accessories can be added for an extra cost.
