New Rat’s Hole Cheese Hauler: 3 Wheels. 2 Engines. 1 Trike

You are looking at the concept drawing of the new Twin Engine Rat’s Hole Trike scheduled to be unveiled this coming week during Daytona Bike Week. Ted Smith, owner/manager of the worldwide famous Rat’s Hole Custom Bike Show commissioned Mike Beland from A1 Cycles to build this new “Cheese Hauler”. Mike is the man who built the amazing Twin Engine Bike that I featured in this Blog after he won the tallest golden trophy during Biketoberfest. On this project Mike Beland collaborated with Canni Design. This is the fourth Cheese Hauler to be built since 1969 and the first to be built since 2001. The Hot Rod style trike contains two 121” TP engines with the left engine running in reverse and an electric shifter. The bike is scheduled to be unveiled during Daytona Bike Week ’07 in the Rat’s Hole booth located on Beach Street from March 3rd through the 9th. It will then be on display at The Lagoon during The Rat’s Hole Custom Bike Show on Saturday March 10th.

    i just wanted to add, that the canni design sketch is awesome..but you have to see the metalflake, kandies, pearls, gold leafs, and crazy pinstriping in person to believe it..the paint is krazy kooky kool…and it has two motors.thanks cyril and see you in a few days…i think its going to need wheelie bars or a throttle stop.

    Don’t like trikes, but this one may look nice.
