The trike was created by father/son team Willis and Joseph Wilcken, who specialize in handcrafted, custom-built trikes.

Joe. Lane and the rest of the family lost their father and husband to cancer due to asbestos exposure while working in the USAF. This tragic loss put the company in a tail spin due to a couple of customers who refused to work with the company and Joe Wilckens, who is the company President. The company had to go into bankruptcy to protect their mother's home from predatory lawsuits due to later than scheduled delivery times.
This group of guys are artistic and build the most intriguing TRIKE on the road. They are currently building mine with the Corvette ZO6 engine. It's a beautiful concept and is already in frame and engine is mounted. NOS and front forks, plus the required frame length to handle the Corvette power put the Trike at almost 23 feet long, yet will turn around in a normal street. You won't go wrong with Joe's talent and knowledge. Loosing their dad was hard, and I too lost a good friend. Greg Baucom

Really love your low profile design. Can I get parts for it? Especially the body parts. Fiberglass? I have a 74 Karman Gia rear end and a rebuilt 1600 VW engine. Want to build a trike similar to your design.
