    This is very cool.. I was looking threw some old mags last week, and seen some Phase Five ads. I was thinking it would be sweet to come across some of the 200X low pro fenders, a short trac tank, and some stickers.. Man for that matter any of the old school parts would be cool to find just to hang on the wall with the other vintage parts..



    Who made the short trac tanks and the fenders for you? If you have any of your old sticker could you keep me in mind? Id be willing to spend the dime to have them reproduced to get them back out in circulation and on trikes..

    Welcome too the forum ,glad to see yet another person from back in the day ,that has a brain we can pick and ask question's too.And thank's for the offer ,on feeding us info and scanning old stuff.I'm sure the mod's will have no problem's with you showing us that stuff at all.

    As far as those old trike's getting all crushed up,I highly doubt that any were destroyed at all.Some were probably sold to help fund the next racing season and some went into private collection's.I'm sure you'll find out alot of info in you're search ,but I have no doubt you'll find something.

    I also had a '85 200X ,back in 1985 that had one of your pipe's on it,I'll have to dig that pic up.You'll find lot's of info on here,and goodluck with your search.

I love talking about it. I started Phase Five when I was 18, and a laid off welder....

It reminds me of how the prisoners on death row have fun waiting for their turn on the electric chair. Fair enough, the trike isn't an electric chair, but it is about as safe and comfortable as one."

    Wow, awesome to see another guy from inside the industry back in the day here. We've already got Mike Coe, Brett Driscoll, and Dean Kirsten from 3wheeling magazine. Great to have you on board. I'm a webmaster/admin for the main site and the forum, and your definitely more then welcome to share whatever pictures and stuff you'd like. Would be awesome to see some of that stuff, especially the way your shop was setup back then, I think that'd be really cool.

Not because you lived it and helped to create legendary parts, but now you're a member. I don't want to burn you out on questions, but i also have some of your old adds and loved the fabricated aluminum swingarms. So thanks for shedding some light on that. I can't help but wonder, how many of the were sold for Tecates and Tri-z's. And where did they all end up? I realize there was fierce competition at that time, with many upstart companys. But some of the parts are seemingly non existant. Did you manufacturer exhaust systems in house, or have them made to spec. Heck, you even had stage 1,3,5 and 9 "Werks Flo Porting" I also notice in one of you ads that the Tecate and 250R pictured have Westcoast swingarms. Were you a dealer for them as well? Anyhow i love vintage stuff and this is very interesting to me. Thank you, and welcome.
    I don't remember selling too many for the Tecate or the Tri-z. The 250R was the big seller, but I remember none of them sold that well, I remember the pricing on those cal-fab arms was around 300. or so. You could get the Westcoast arms a bit cheaper, and they were great arms as well. I took a tour of both mfg. places that made them. What a day that was. All of our exhaust systems were made out of house. We did porting as well, I remember gettting around 5-10 jugs a week. That would wear you down I remember dealing with the porting. It was time consuming, and everyone was in a hurry....

    IMS made the tanks, (international Motorsports), Honda used them as well for the team. The fenders we had made at Maier Mfg. I'll have to check on the old stickers...

    Phase Five Parts

    Here's a shot of the ATC200X short track tank, cut back in the front for more turning radius. Also pics of three really popular screen number plates, left to right: 82 ATC250R, 85 ATC250R, KXT250 Tecate...

    I have an old tiger racer that has some PF stickers on it, and has JP Porting, not sure what products it may have had of yours on it, I was thinking maybe a number plate? anyhow, I would be interested in either some old stock stickers or maybe you would consider some reproductions through your company? or would those be considered original PF? lol I've actually got a handful of decals from your company in the past. the fox shock I have is lookin good with its new rezzy decal. any help you can offer would be immensely appreciated! Thanks. HH

    Scott, What did you make for the Tri-Z's? There maybe a market for those number plates just on this forum alone. Do you still have any of your jigs for pipes? Mold's for plastic's you created? It sure is a pleasure having you here. I REALLY HOPE THEY STICKY THIS THREAD

    Welcome to the boards Scott! It's always good when veterans join. I just sold my full Selvys kit 200R to another member on here so he could restore it. I know, not a true factory ride, but as close as I've come so far. Can't wait to hear some stories from you.

    Yes...... We all look forward to taking history classes in Trikeology from someone directly involved with the "movement" back in the day.
