Wheelchair-bound motorcycle enthusiast Rick Lenglet and his employer – the folks at Echo Cycle in Edmonton, Alberta, one of Canada’s largest Triumph dealers – custom built this trike to accommodate him and his chair.  After a snowmobile crash twenty-seven years ago broke his back causing him to lose use of his legs, Lenglet hasn’t ridden a motorcycle since. But his love for motorcycles has never wavered.

After a long hiatus, Lenglet got back on motorcycle again, but this time on a three-wheeler.  The trike is built around a monstrous Triumph Rocket III 2300 c.c. ‘triple’, drivetrain and front end, and has numerous special  controls so that brakes, clutch and gearshift are hand operated.

Since ‘launching’ the trike in June, Lenglet has racked up 9,000 kilometres including a trip to the B.C. Kootenays.  This is one spectacular machine built for a special guy who’s spent his career in the powersports industry.
