    My trike has been modified and or upgraded. It is now the way it should have been in the first place. Nice Trike.

    I have my eye on another, so, mine is for sale. Bugs removed and many modifications made. Can be seen at John Berkey’s Home Page or Columbia River Rats Home Page

    W E LL I guess they aint gona see about 3,029 trikers buying that Apex trike after they read this post. . Looked real good in the pictures and the web sight . One guy has a nice one for sale , said he pumped about $20,000 into it. What a shame. It really looks like a nice trike too bad they can't build them right

    I had one of the first few they put out. After numerous problems I traded in on a car and took a hugh loss. I was glad to get rid of it. I definitely would not buy another one...if anybody has one, I wish them a lot of luck....

    I see on their ebay site that one bidder runs the price up and drops off right before the selling price. Just don't look right to me.

    seems like we aint never gona get that black cloud away from up......californis custom is just pure guano; of the worst kind too!

    my last trike was build by a friend of mine, named 'Goat" and his company is called IBEX, based out of arizona. there are not many 'Trike" builders here.....IBEX and Phoenix Trike Works are the best for the money.

    walk softly around california custom.......they got a very bad credit rating and their BBB rating fell off the chart years ago.

    I walked into their shop with enough money in my hand to buy their trike. I looked at their trike and walked out with my money. 92 eyes

    Default Stay away from California custom trikes

    I know this post comes late but I bought one of these trikes in 2011. It has been an expensive, unreliable nightmare. At this time it has @ 4900 miles on it and I've spent close to $3000 in repairs, some of which could have been life threatening such as the rear axel nut being loose, the fuel filter dropping onto a hot pipe and melting or the throttle sticking. I can't even enjoy riding it because it can't be trusted. This company has no business manufacturing these trikes. I have receipts and 2 mechanic shops to back up my claims.

    Even though this thread is quite old, I am glad to see you post your experience with them Eileen!

    This seems to be a common issue with California Trikes.
