KMX Trike Frame kits for cheap!!!

Post by ElectricGod » Jan 05, 2018 2:10 am

Due to lack luster response to this great opportunity and the fact that just one person actually committed to this by sending me their money...I'm closing this deal. Calling it. Don't send me your money. I'll get a frame for myself and that's that.


Does anyone in the USA want a KMX frame kit? It is exactly the same kit that Utah Trikes sells for $700 plus $60 shipping.
http://www.utahtrikes.com/PROD-11615984.html

I am buying direct from KMX and the more I get of them the better the price gets. $600 is a worst case price.

This is for a KMX frame kit only...NOT A complete trike. See below for the list of components included in the kit and what you need to buy to complete a trike. The point of this group buy is to get a frame kit as a foundation for a really stout EV build capable of 4kw or much higher. Add components as you see fit.

I want to place an order by the end of February 2018 or maybe at the latest end of March.

I can get single frame kits for $600 + shipping to you.
More frame kits per order means my cost goes down.
5 frame kits in an order drives my cost down to $550 each + shipping to you.
I make zero profits from this group buy. What I pay is what you pay! We are all helping each other get a frame kit for less expense...that's all.

If you are in the USA and want one, paypal me $600 and then you are committed to buy a frame. I'll wait a while and see how many orders I get. Hopefully at least 5 orders! I will then be asking for shipping money to you. If I get 5 frames and shipping to you is $30, then you will get $20 back from me. If they cost me $550 each and shipping to you is $80, then I will be asking you for an additional $30. I won't know the specifics until I actually get committed orders. All I care about is covering my costs.

All frame kits will be delivered to me and then shipped to you individually. I won't be opening the individual boxes or checking the contents in any way other than the one that I am buying. I will then post pictures of my frame kit.

These are NOT complete trikes that you will assemble. They are the major components of a KMX trike that allows you to customize as you see fit.

Once you pay me your money, there will be no refunds or backing out.

Post here or PM me.

This is the best picture of the frame kit that I could find...sorry for the crappy resolution.

And a UtahTrikes video on the kit. What you see in this video is the kit.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vUlcOKm5ssM

This is what is listed in the kit:
KMX Steel Frame
Complete seat with all hardware
All steering parts
XL Boom w/Derailleur post
Idler and chain tube assembly
20-inch front wheels with double-wall rims
All frame hardware

This is the minimum you need to buy to complete the trike:
Rear wheel (20-26 inch)
Tires
Chain
Gearing (crank and rear)
Cables
Brake calipers, and rotors
Shifters
Pedals

Update...If I can get 4 other people to send me $$ for a frame kit, they will cost us $550 each. I don't know about more than that, but I bet the price drops even further.

cool! PM me and then you can payapl me the money. I won't be ordering immediately as I want to get a few people buying into this before I do. More frame kits in the order makes it cheaper for everyone.

What would the cost be after you/anyone takes that frame and makes it full suspension.

1) Cost to Cut the Main Beam at the rear and put in linkages and shock for rear suspension ?
( Note : you are going to want a longer wheel base anyway )

2) Cost to have suspension on both wheels /axles , on the front of the trike ?

= Total cost ?

I'm still looking for people to get one or more of these frame kits. Right now I have money for me and one other person and promises from 2 others that they will send me money once they get paid.

I don't know. That depends on what you put on the bike. Cheap components cost way less than expensive components. Go look up KMX suspension. I don't control those parts or what they cost. Same for bike modding or components that are not part of the kit. None of that is part of the KMX frame kit. What you do with it after buying one is 100% up to you!

Good point...didn't give a cut-off date.
I want to place an order by the end of February 2018 or maybe at the latest end of March.

I'm in Colorado. If you go to Utah trikes, you will pay $700 + shipping. I'm at least getting them for $600 or less and then adding shipping. It will be cheaper than Utah Trikes. What I pay is what you will pay.

ElectricGod,

By the time you add the cost and mark up of those suspension parts, to the kind of trike you are trying to sell it is just not worth it.
You and Anyone who wants a high speed trike is better off to just buy a frame kit has has been designed in the first place for the higher speeds and higher torque from motor, higher weight of batteries , etc.

You are not finding such a trike frame kit that exists now ? Then you are going to have to get someone here in the States or other country to design and make it.

For higher speeds like you want to do, and I as well , a longer wheelbase, and full suspension is a Must , better to get this done now than to go down the path you are on now .

There is good reason I am not riding a electric trike now, one that is good enough and affordable enough is just not being sold at the present time.

You have put in allot of time in designing the drive system you want to do, the frames that are available now are just not good enough .

When you get a longer wheelbase , full suspended , affordable reverse trike available, then you will have the number of buyers that you want , coming to you .

1) Full Suspension

2) Longer Wheelbase

3) Wider stance (distance between the front wheels)

4) Fenders and Belly Pan under the frame / between your legs, feet, butt.

5) Attachment points to put on a front pod and windscreen . ( Wind Chill Factor is putting the brakes on higher speeds this time of year )



Etc.

I don't know what you are talking about. The frame kit is the frame kit. I'm doing a group buy on frame kits only. Other parts NOT listed are 100% up to you. What you see in my first post is exactly what you are buying...nothing more or less than that.

If you were to buy a complete KMX trike that is built around this kit, you will pay way more for it than you will if you get the missing components yourself. A lot more. Fill in the missing components as you see fit. If you want the most expensive parts or the cheapest parts or whatever...I don't care and that does not effect this amazingly good deal in any way at all for a KMX frame kit.

You WILL be able to put together a trike for less money than a complete trike from KMX. Get on amazon and find the parts that KMX sells on their trikes. Add them up and see for yourself.

Regarding your comments about higher speeds. I know of people that in fact do ride this trike at 70mph. It is plenty strong enough for that use. At worst and I don't know of anyone doing this, add a couple of cross braces to the front wheel booms if you are worried about it. BUT frankly, NO ONE that I have read about anywhere or know personally has ever seen a need to do this. These are solid, welded steel frames that can handle many kilowatts pushing them along. I intend to build a trike that is all wheel drive and runs at a minimum of 12kw and probably more like 18kw. The frame won't be a problem.

All the full suspension trikes cost many thousands more and they are aluminum frames, not steel. IE: Much weaker and not worthy of high wattage trike builds.

If you want rear suspension, how about develop one for this frame kit?

I don't provide or supply or have any involvement with the front suspension kits for the KMX frames in any way. They do add width to the stance. I believe and I really don't know for sure, but something like 2" to each side. With a longer axle and a spacer behind the wheel, you can space your wheels 10 feet apart if you want.

The frame kit comes with what is in the list. Did you look at the description I posted? If you want a belly pan, wheel covers, wind screen...whatever...MAKE them or find them online. I'm providing a frame kit with the parts in the list and NOTHING ELSE. I'm repeating myself a LOT now. Everything said here has already been said in my very first post. I'm trying to get people to go in with me on the KMX frame kits...NOTHING ELSE. If you want more stuff in the kits, then contact KMX directly and tell them you want more stuff in their already inexpensive frame kits. I don't have any control in ANY way over what they include or don't include in the kits. I don't care about options or wish lists or anything other than KMX frame kits in this thread. What you do AFTER you BUY a frame kit is 100% up to you. Geez...what is that...3 or 4 times at least that to you specifically I have said what is and is not part of this group buy?

BTW...good luck finding anything comparable for $600 and that's assuming I get just one kit and that's not the case. I will probably get them for $550 which is a crazy good deal!

So to repeat myself one more time...just like the title says...LOL!

KMX Trike Frame kits for cheap!!!

See my original post in this thread. Everything else you state is irrelevant to that!

I am trying to do a group buy for KMX frame kits ONLY.
