No need, I asked down the pub.
100% of respondents said don't be daft nobody would buy it.

Honda been there, done that, got the t-shirt in the 80s with the Gyro.
Learned the lesson, moved on.

My wife would still like the triked version of the PCX more. :-)
There was also a triked Burgman 650 Executive on YouTube that I saw when I was viewing the Gyro.
Considering that my wife is only 5 ft. tall I was surprised that she could handle our Burgman 400 so well, but what she really wants is a triked 650 so that she can get out on the road and feel safer than she does with the PCX (though she loves riding it.)

I still love this one the most, and wish we could afford to do this with ours, or at least my wife's.

Mel, that's a sweet PCX trike, I can SEE why your wife and you like it. Can I ask, What keeps you from doing this or getting one? If it's money, I get it. How about Go Fun(d) Me? My nephew did that when his drums (and other equipment) were stolen from his bands van. Woohoo...they raised mucho dinero! All New was bought, band Rocked again!

It does remind me of a Raleigh Chopper.

And therefore cool.

WN, there are two reasons that i haven't triked my wife's PCX, the first being money. The second reason is the killer. As you know, I have Leukemia. As I get older, i find that I tire much easier now. I love riding, but I fear that my riding days are almost over.

Oooooo....right. Sorry Mel, I did forget :oops:
What a DAMN Shame! This getting older n getting sick sucks! It does. Sorry folks but truth be told, it ain't all chocolate and strawberries. Such an Illness is like a Long Stop Light. I'm hoping that your's Mel still turns Green. What is it now? A constant yellow? I bet.
It's about you though. I have faith. You can be a fighter Mel and I'm betting you are in Life Overall.
So, go on - Kickass young man, Kickass!

We Are Family. You talk to us whenever! OK? ;)
When or If you do, let's chat in our Off Topic board. ("I Must mention" that. Sorry)

About that PCX trike, My Opinion? Do It if You Can figure out a Way. No Regret's Cayote! ;) Live!

OK, so what are the real life advantages of these trikes and three wheelers. Seems to me that the weight provides a little more stability and you don't need to put your leg down on the ground at a complete stop .What else am I missing..
This may be good for the elderly or physically impaired I get that ..
