Never Again buy from MotorTrike or 234 Motorsports
Motor Trike, Inc.
I have determined I need to share my experiences with others so perhaps they may reconsider buying any products from Motor Trike Inc. and 2-3-4 Motorsports. 907 S. Eagle Valley Rd , Wingate, PA 16823, owner Doug Miles, which is the dealer I paid and dealt with here in PA.
The short version is, I converted my 2008 HD SE Ultra Classic to a trike, 234 Motorsports picked up my bike end of March 2015 delivered it back on July 6, 2015. Within 1 mile on my initial ride the bike broke down and was eventually towed to Erie Harley-Davidson to figure out what had happen. Like I said short version as most of the information you won't believe , but it's true, and I have pictures to prove it.
The first issue we found was the clutch was put back together by 234 Motorsport with, hold on, flat washers and super glue. The reason being was that Motor Trike Inc. supplied the dealer the wrong clutch rod in the kit. Basically it was a 1/2 inch short, and the dealer used flat washers like you would find at a hardware store to shim the slave cylinder , in the Master cylinder a washer had been also super glued to the plunger which eliminated the free play.
Then I take the bike out for a test drive, only to find out I only have a right turn signal working and a brake light on the hand side not on the foot brake. It appears that 234 Motorsports had attached the wiring in the rear fenders on the wall with "Duck Tape" thus the wires fell down, rubbed against the tire and were cut thus no rear lights.
I paid over $20,000 to 234 Motorsports to build my bike, but I then had to pay the Erie Harley- Davidson Dealer and others approximately $3,000 to find and fix problems that were not there fault, during their busy summer season. As of Oct 3, 2015 the bike is finally safe to ride and I will be heading to Daytona Beach. My bike and pictures of all I have described will be in front of the Motor Trike Inc. display in October and again in March at Bike Week 2016 for all to see.
Based on Motor Trike Inc. customer service dept representative, Richard, I was to take the bike to the Harley Dealer, they have not offer a penny in covering my costs and nether has 234 Motorsports , because somehow it's my fault they used super glue, flat washers and duck tape to assemble my bike.
So the 2015 Motorcycle ridding season was a lost one for me here in Erie, PA
