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 every square inch of this beauty I call Big Yella from the ground up.

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 all 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.

So, if you can use a drill, an angle grinder, a welder, a wrench and a ruler, and have the determination, you're on the way. Simply by using the sub-section from a donor Volkswagon Beetle. That's how I built Big Yella.

Classic VW 1600 engine

*The irony original 1200cc engine was sold to a sheep shearer in the great Aussie outback (Thargominda, Qld) and was never used in my VW trike.
