Spawn From The Great White North
Canada-based Rat Shop has taken inspiration for several of its builds over the years from characters featured in graphic novels and its latest build – Spawn – is no exception.
What is different is that it is the shop’s first trike build.
Rather than go down the traditional trike route and use a sold axle, derived from car designs, Rat Shop owner Rat has fabricated a swingarm arrangement that mounts each of the rear wheels on the outside and drive is through a Baker transmission that features dual outputs; one chain for each wheel. A move needed because of the power output of the Magna super charger equipped 145ci S&S Evo style motor.
