Ending Soon – “GARMR .003” 2009 Harley-Davidson Reverse-Leaning Trike Custom

In 3 Wheels, America, Custom by Tim HuberLeave a Comment

I’ve never been a big fan of custom trikes, but this one-off Harley isn’t your average three-wheeler. Built by Barghest Motive, this tricked out trike is built around an unspecified 1,200cc V-Twin from a 2009 Harley-Davidson. Dubbed the “GARMR .003”, the trike reportedly gets its name from a “devil dog” who guards the gates of hell in Norse mythology.

Though utterance of the Indian Motorcycle name typically conjures up images of big-bore American-style V-Twin baggers and cruisers, the now Polaris-owned outfit for a time produced a decent number of small and micro-displacement dual-sports, mini and dirt bikes.
