Might be a real Ed Roth trike body, but, how would you ever prove it

  2. I was watching some show recently and a dude had this exact dilemma. He scored one of these and figured if he could prove it was a Roth kit trike it would be worth so much more. So he called Darryl Roth and he came out to authenticate it and supply a Roth certificate.

    He looked at the underside and although it had repairs and some alterations, he deemed it to be the real thing. Darryl claimed Ed was a real advocate for child labour and had his kids work the moulds, which is why they can recognise the real thing. And something about the thickness in certain areas and some marks of some kind made the difference.

  3. One of the Velocity shows had a trike like this a while back...
