Slim's Trike


Slim's infamous trike has been a regular at bike events all over the southwest for some years now. Part three-wheeler, part dirt bike and part Kawasaki two-stroke triple, Slim's trike is a rusty reflection of its creator, and never fails to draw a crowd. This rattle trap is obviously not built for much more than sketchy wheelies and slack-jawed ogling, and that's just fine with Slim. Like the man who built it, Slim's trike is funky, original and fun to be around.

My girlfriend LOVES this trike. (We have not seen it in person) I have all the pictures I could find saved. She wants one like this for her. Thinking of trying to build one with smaller tires and possibly a 2 cylinder or go with a blast motor and see how it works out :D

Everything Slim does is done right.

Death throttle = new screen saver

That thing is knarley

Commented on 1-28-2011 At 08:56 am

NICE! I have not been able to check it in person YET. So I have been kinda waitin' to catch somemore views. EXCELLENT!

Commented on 1-28-2011 At 09:21 am

It's pretty wild all right. Looks like something one would find in an old barn after sitting for years. The machine is so eclectic and I can just see a new magazine now called "Mad Iron" and the men who create them. There are plenty of people who build crazy motorcycle powered machines like this but they have not their own place...maybe I should trade mark the idea eh.

Commented on 1-28-2011 At 09:53 am

They made a movie about it... it's called Mad Max.

Commented on 1-28-2011 At 10:03 am

Slim is a humble and righteous dude, and how many times did you see that combo in a human being? His motorized vehicles are all top shelf, like where momma hides the cookies, and Slim is one of the reasons why the "scene" is just fucking awesome right now.

Commented on 1-28-2011 At 10:50 am

Slim is cool, love his style!

Commented on 1-28-2011 At 10:58 am

The Arm Pit Burner rules!

If there ever was a "WhackyKawasaki" this's it.
In the oldschool sense of the word, not as in "wack"

Commented on 1-29-2011 At 12:00 am

love this guy, love his work. Use him

Commented on 1-29-2011 At 07:05 am

Not Only is he a great artist, He is a really solid nice guy to talk to with huge amounts of good energy.
Great WorK Slim

Commented on 1-29-2011 At 08:14 am

I've never met the man, but have absolute respect for his vision, work, and work ethic. All his work I've seen is truly inspirational.

Commented on 1-29-2011 At 11:17 am

I have met this "Slim" fellow quite a few times and found him to be an abrasive asshole. This shitty trike only supports that assessment. The complete lack of chrome and gloss paint is unsettling, not to mention tires with no tread. That is just downright unsafe. This posting has convinced me to quite this crappy website and join American Iron.

Yours in sarcasm,

Commented on 1-29-2011 At 12:04 pm

Too much chrome.......

Commented on 1-29-2011 At 01:10 pm

And it looks like something that would belong at Slab City all
year round... very Mad Max.

Commented on 1-29-2011 At 03:38 pm

I always see Slim at the LBC swap meet and no matter how many times I see this guy in a magazine, he still always has a moment to say whats up to a nobody like me. Not only does he build the most off the wall machines, he's one of the coolest guys you'll meet in the business... Slim is the Man.

Commented on 1-29-2011 At 06:19 pm

very very awesome

Commented on 1-29-2011 At 08:34 pm

Hardest working motherfucker in "chop" business.

Commented on 1-29-2011 At 10:43 pm

What's not to like about Slim!? True genius.

Commented on 1-30-2011 At 03:25 am

Haha,last time I sat on this little beast,fucking tires tried to eat my ass. Only person who I think could ride it is Slim. Proud to call the crazy fucker my friend,even more proud of his blue collar work ethic and nose to the grindstone attitude. Can't wait until we unveil the "Lucky Fucker Special"

Commented on 1-30-2011 At 09:07 am

Good to see all this well deserved support.

Hi Slim

Commented on 1-30-2011 At 12:06 pm

Too cool. This is one of those put up or shut up builds, I love it

Commented on 1-31-2011 At 02:55 pm

Death Metal.

Commented on 1-31-2011 At 07:42 pm

pretty fun looking ride.

Commented on 2-3-2011 At 02:35 pm

psycho american made insanity. dig it!

Commented on 3-3-2011 At 08:09 am


The people that are trying to giving you gruff are jealous because they did not think of it first. They do not know you very well do they..... I do and you are a true chop artist in the things you create and you are on the cutting edge.... SHAME ON THEM!!!!!!!! If we all were the same in this world it would be awful place to be...... All I can say is CHOP-ON DUDE!!!!!


Commented on 3-3-2011 At 11:43 am

In-Fucking-Sane! I would love to see into his brain sometime... This is a sucide sickle... be safe Slim... we want to see more projects.
