The Big Wheel SS Trike made its North American debut on Saturday February, 20, 2010 at A Bikers Garage in Roanoke Texas. A number of enthusiast took test rides and this video records their impression of this innovative machine.
The Speed Chair was designed by George Emmons Najar to get realistic shots and the feel of speed in a relative safe environment. The videographer has a clear 180 degree range to shoot. The chair was field tested at Bonneville with a Dodge HEMI at 120MPH.
The chair fits for and aft via a trailer hitch arrangement. It is built with tubular aluminum backbone and was welded together by the pros at D&D Performance Enterprises out of Ft. Worth, TX. The shooter is attached by a 5 point Simpson harness. Getting in and out of the chair, with gear at the ready, requires approximately 5 minutes.
We are currently in the planning stage for Bonneville and expect the Speed Chair to be part of the gear to be taken to the great white dyno on the ground.
