Shadd Spencer's TPC450R Custom Trike

"My name is Shadd Spencer and this is my custom TPC450r three wheeler built with the intentions of running motocross on it.  I'd like to give special thanks to Bill and Kimmie and everyone else at Tpctrikes for making the frame and front hub for me and helping out with all my assembly questions, also Ernie at FTR Powersports for making the sweet graphics kit for the trike, my friend Derrick Adams and the Ohio Trike Crew for getting me into racing these wild contraptions, and my wife Ashley for being there throughout my long racing career.  

I've been racing quad motocross since I was twelve (15 years now) and just wanted to try something different with the trike, so I built this since I had most the parts needed to fabricate it laying around having 3 race quads. I started pulling my favorite parts from the list below, kept motor stock just to get used to the power on 3 wheels. Maybe next year I'll open it up a little with crank, piston and cam... but for now thanks to everyone that helped with the project over winter and to all that voted for it! Thanks Again!"
