We all know trikes are fun and the fun probably doesn’t get much better than with this 2010 Harley-Davidson FLHXXX Street Glide Trike.
The FLHXXX Street Glide Trike looks much like a two-wheeled Harley touring bike from the front, save for a few changes to the rake angle, front stabilization strut and the braking set-up.
The Street Glide Trike was based on a new chassis that had been specifically designed for a three-wheel application.
Street Glide Trike – “probably not for anoraks”
This is not really a machine for the anoraks, but they may want to know the rake was increased to 32 degrees, while the forks were stretched by 1.775 in., enhancing steering control by reducing effort by up to 25 per cent.
Additionally, a steering damper minimizes wobble and lessens bump steer when negotiating turns.
Power comes from a twin-cam 103 V-Twin with electronic fuel injection. It delivers 101 foot-pounds of torque at 3,500 rpm and is mated to the same six-speed Cruise Drive transmission used on Harley’s other touring machines.
It’s fast. Very fast. So, importantly, bringing the Street Glide Trike to a halt are dual front discs and a dual-disc rear brake system.
Street Glide Trike was owned by rocker Johnny Hallyday
This fully customized FLHXXX Street Glide Trike was originally owned by French rock and roll legend Johnny Hallyday and was kept at his home in Los Angeles.
The unique Buckwild paint job features traditional flames, very much fitting Hallyday’s rock persona.
Other custom features include a Bluetooth stereo system, Battistinis shifters, brake pedal, derby cover, footboards and Thunderheaders to ensure this custom trike announces its arrival.
Hallyday was seen many times riding this bespoke Harley around Southern California before he sold it to the current owner in 2016.
Included with the sale is the original California registration and insurance card noting Hallyday’s ownership as well as a copy of the California title.
Street Glide Trike is valued at £60,000
The Street Glide Trike is being offered for auction by RM Sotheby’s in Paris on Wednesday, February 7.
Whether you have a Honda or Harley trike like Johnny Hallyday’s old one, bought off the shelf from a specialist, or if you’ve built your trike yourself onto a Reliant or VW chassis, the beauty of a trike is that it is as individual as you.
However, finding a reasonable trike insurance quote can be something of an ordeal.
