Found this trike site.

Found this factory producing trikes in UK when searching for something else. Posting it since there has been some threads about trikes here in the past.

Here is another one: TryKit

I would love to see some more high performance trike conversions. I remember racing back in the mid to late 70's. We had a couple of elderly gentlemen that ran club level time trials, one on a Jack Taylor trike and his younger brother rode a track frame. They used to run faster times than I did as a Junior class rider. IIRC they were both in their early 70's. they hailed from Aberdeen, Scotland.
