...something must be right

Imagine riding a VW trike like this, anytime, anywhere. It looks great! It sounds great and it handles great.

Phil Parry is my name and I'm no mechanic. I'm a Technical Illustrator. I don't have a large fabrication shop, only a modest home garage
, but that didn't stop me from designing and building from the ground up, this beauty, I call Big Yella . shouldn't stop you.

The Big Yella Story

 After replacing the engine in my daughters '65 VW Beetle, I pondered what to do with the old
VW 1200* engine now redundant and dripping oil over my garage floor. "A VW trike I'll build" thought I. And so the journey began.

All design, fabrication, engine construction, wiring, painting, panels and fenders, timberwork and wrought iron work, in fact everything you see, I did in that modest garage.

If you can use a drill, a welder, a wrench, some commonsense and dedication, you're on the way. Simply by using the sub-section from a donor Volkswagon Beetle. That's how I built Big Yella.

A Serious Guide to Building a VW Trike

For a rewarding project you can do yourself at home, this one's for you. And to help you through the process I created 'A Serious Guide to Building A VW Trike' which will show you all the steps how to transform a Volkswagon Beetle into a stunning VW trike like Big Yella.
 And when finished, your home built VW trike will have cost a fraction of a shop built machine.
