    PA Street Legal XR650L Trike - by 211 Motorsports

    After more than a decade of dreaming, thinking, more dreaming, and it has finally come to fruition. I finally have a legit street legal ATC. I'm proud to introduce my 2008 ATC XR650L. Amazingly built by Derrick Adams (211 Motorsports) this trike is truly a one-of-a-kind. While I have several other quad to trike conversions, this is the first bike to trike conversion I have ever owned. Derrick has built several other bike to trike conversions over the years, and I have always been extremely impressed with his work and attention to detail. He knocked this one right out of the park! I approached Derrick a couple years back and we brain stormed briefly. After much thought and some discussion, the time came. I dropped my beloved XR off with Derrick. A little while later, and this is what he has presented me with.

    As for the build, it is basically all bolt on. The only non-motorcycle parts (and non custom parts) on the bike are as follows: From ATC - front fender, front hub, front axle, speedo drive unit. From TRX - seat, rear fenders, rear axle and carrier, and rear brakes. This trike could be very easily converted right back to a bike in not very much time at all. Starting up front, the 650 uses the motorcycle's front forks and front brakes. With a beautiful adapter hub mating the ATC front hub to the motorcycle's brake disc. The forks have been shortened. The top triple is two stock XR650L triples put together for more width. If I didn't type that, you'd never even know. the bottom triple is custom. All controls and gauges are stock XR. The gas tank and entire frame minus the sub-frame are all XR. The foot pegs are custom. The sub-frame and swingarm are custom. I'm sure I am missing tons of stuff here, but let the pictures speak for themselves. Also, Derrick took it upon himself to build a custom rear rack. He thought, what is the point if you can't go to the grocery store without being able to haul stuff home. He custom fabbed up a rear rack, that rotates rearward so that the rear fenders can still be taken off with ease. For the way it works, think Hondaline ATC250SX rear rack. I think it adds a certain refinement to this bike and finishes it off in the looks department as well. Kudos Derrick, kudos!

    I've only ridden it just a wee bit thus far. I still need to put DOT tires on the rear. I purchased non-DOT by accident. After that, I will take it to get mandatory Pennsylvania State Inspection, then I am totally legal. I have never let the insurance or registration lap while it was being built. I did however call my insurance company and ask if I needed to do anything special because it was getting a "trike kit" installed. They said nothing needed done. I also contacted a motorcycle inception station and went over everything with them, as well as reading the motorcycle inspection laws time and time again. All is good in that department as well.

    PA Street Legal XR650L Trike - by 211 Motorsports

    Thanks for making my XR look like a pile of monkey nuts! I was sitting at breakfast with the great Mik6 yesterday and he asked me if I was planning on taking my XR to Trikefest. I told him at that moment, probably not. He then turned his phone to me and showed me a picture of your XR on the Bookface and asked me if I was positive I wasn't going to bring it. This morning I awoke and immediately ordered a new stator and also renewed my expired registration. See you next month my friend!

    I've put lots of street miles on this when it was a bike. So.... MX conversion class? Saturday drags? What are your TF plans for this, little brother?

    Great job Derrick! CAN NOT WAIT to see (ride) it this weekend.

    That is awesome that there will be two of these monsters at TF! Kudos for getting yours ready for TF. We will have to take a little street ride while in Laurel. Some pictures of them together will be awesome too!

    No MX for it this year. I will drag race it for sure though. Other TF plans include but are not limited to, Shoe tree trips, street riding with the infamous Fabio, and Riverfest. It wheelies the same as the bike BTW - Frickin easily.

    Just realized.... this thing still has a twisty throttle on it?! Probably the 2-cable type too. How's that working out? Keeping it? I've never known you to have a twist on any of your 3 wheelers.

    Derrick does some great work!! I wonder how many times you'll get pulled over like Fabio was.

    But, this is the A-hole state so I bet it won't be nearly as many riding interruptions for you!!

    There are quite a few guys that want to build one of these puppies....
    WHO IS Q?? WWG1WGA!!

    I am thinking about keeping the twist throttle for one reason: long hauls. After an hour or so, your thumb tends to get tired. With a twisty, it will eliminate the thumb fatigue.

    I myself would love to have one...unfortunately, here in my small town they would pull me over and impound it just because they didn't like the idea, and the following legal battle would cost more than the bike, and then i would lose. I can see it now in court, "Your honor, ladies and gentlemen of the jury, this man took a normal motorcycle and made a 3 WHEELER out of it and now he's riding it on the street?!!!"

    And it would be totally worth it!
    That bike looks amazing! Enjoy it!
