Wayne Fjerstad of Rochester, Minnesota likes motorcycles, his girlfriend likes her vehicles a little more stable, so Wayne figures why not modify his Honda CBR1000RR? Wayne fired up SolidWorks and designed this 3 wheeler he calls, Veloce3. With the automotive seats, seatbelts and rollbar, his girlfriend is happy which, of course, means Wayne is pretty pleased himself.
He built his own hydraulic tubing bender and dies and put together the frame. He built a reverse gearbox using CBR transmission parts, otherwise, Wayne says, “my passenger would have to be the reverse.” It started off as a belt drive with a final ratio close to a stock bike, but he wanted more low end torque and switched to chain drive with a higher ratio. He likes this one so much he might build another one and use a Hayabusa engine or something similar.
