Boss Hoss Cycles, Inc. was established in 1990 when Monte Warne, the founder of Boss Hoss Cycles, Inc., created his first Chevy V8 powered motorcycle in his 5,000 square foot shop in Dyersburg, Tennessee. Monte, a commercial aircraft pilot and degreed Aviation Airframe and Power plant technician, was the first to design a V8 powered motorcycle that has a traditional cruiser motorcycle style, look and feel. This was accomplished by his unique approach to the motorcycles single speed (one gear) transmission design. The right-angle drive transmission allows the length of the bike to be kept to a minimum and the engine-mounting inline with the frame made for a well-balanced design that is unequaled by any other V-8 powered motorcycles. Over the past 28 years Boss Hoss Cycles, Inc. has grown from its humble beginnings in Monte's shop to a 22,000 square foot manufacturing facility. The product line has also grown from the conventional two-wheeled motorcycle to include three wheeled vehicles commonly referred to as trikes.
For consignment the definition of excess, a Boss Hoss V8 trike. With 502 HP between your legs you not only have some excitement between them, but your legs have to be spread really far apart! This trike sports custom paint, a stereo system and sticky Viper rear tires. Of course, many other features, but like the TV teaser you get showing upcoming highlights to your favorite programs, read on!
Hot, Mean n Nasty says the front cowl, and based on its looks and specs I'd tend to believe this. Candy Apple Red has gorgeously hot yellow to orange to deep red airbrushed flames licking in every direction on the surfaces of this trike. These include the front cowling, front fender, rear car body like covering complete with big attached fenders, and a round off rear trunk. On the rear, it takes on the look of a mini '31 Ford hot rod. Twin chromed exhaust sneek a peek from under the trunk area and are flanked by massive 335/35R17 tires which wrap polished Billet Specialties wheels. A two-tier seat offers the rear passenger full view of the ride experience, and these beautifully crafted black stitched leather seats are fronted by a double wide fuel tank. This tank has a gauge cluster fanning out on its top, and above float the chromed handlebars. A Pioneer stereo which has AM/FM/MP3/CD capabilities is inset above the handlebars. Chromed diamond plate protectors are seen to guard against bruins at various locations around the V8, and to direct airflow into the V8 from the front mounted radiator.
A custom 502ci V8 sits in all its chromed glory amongst the diamond plates and frame of this trike. This engine puts out 502 HP and has a single 4 barrel carburetor to feed its appetite for power. A 4 speed automatic OD transmission throws power rearward to a 10 bolt rear. Pipes mufflers provide an escape for the burnt fossils and air and headers are noted attached to both sides of the V8.
Telescoping fork suspension for the front and coil overs on the rear of this trike keep it glued to the road. A disc brake for the front, and drums are on the rear from low on the bike, we note bullet style turn signals hanging from the bottom of the lower radiator shield.
This was a thrill ride with its massive sound and power. Instant acceleration and smoother than imagined. Cruises nicely at lower speeds as well. Very balanced and the sound of the motor is just what you would expect.
Overall a custom wild creation in the minds of those from Tennessee. An interesting custom build, with plenty of HP, gobs of V8 engine, and a beautifully sculpted body on back. Very reminiscent of a small hot rod, only much more power to weight ratio advantage for this Boss Hoss.
