Post Sale Update: Death Trap $6,300 after 3 bids on eBay in Alpharetta, Georgia.


Called the Death Trap III, the back half of this oddball custom trike is a Cadillac 350 V-8 that was originally used in a FWD platform.

This example (VIN: JH2RC0703CM000504) is titled as a 1982 Honda VF750S Sabre as that’s what the frame neck is from.

Per the seller, “I purchased this trike from the guy that built it 10 years ago. I rode it quite a bit for the first 5 years I had it, but now it mostly just sits in my collection.”

The back end body is for a 50s model truck equipped with red school bus lights in the headlight buckets as tail lights.

He goes on to say that it “cruises smooth at highway speeds” and that it got new tires a few years ago. “It’s a crazy ride, one of a kind. Ride it as is or make it your own.
