Imagine riding a beauty like my Big Yella, anytime you want and anywhere you want. It looks great. It sounds great and it handles even better. I have ridden 2 wheelers for many years and still do, but riding a trike is something special. Riding a VW trike is a 'bucket list' must do.

Phil Parry is my name and I'm a Technical Illustrator. I designed and built this trike in my modest home garage.

Big Yella Story

After replacing the engine in my daughters '65 VW Beetle, I wondered what to do with the old VW 1200* engine now bleeding oil over my garage floor. I know, I'll build a VW trike I thought. And so the journey began.

All the design, fabrication, engine work, timber and wrought iron work, in fact everything you see, I did in that modest home garage. And you could too.

Build your own Big Yella VW trike that you can do at home. To help you through the process I have produced 'A Serious Guide to Building A VW Trike' which will show you step by step how to convert an old VW Beetle into a stunning trike. based on my own personal experience.

This is by far the BEST 'How to Build a VW Trike' (with actual plans) you can get on the web anywhere.

"The three great essentials to achieving anything worthwhile are, first, hard work; second, stick-to-itiveness; and the third, common sense" (Thomas Alva Edison)

*Footnote: The 1200cc engine that started the whole thing off... never got used.
I sold it and built the modified1600 engine as can be seen.
