This page finalized December 15, 2006


The Mobile Source Enforcement Section along with the Office of Legal Affairs has completed its investigation against Motor Trike, Inc. located in Troupe, Texas. Motor Tike Inc. was manufacturing after market parts kits that would convert on-road two wheel motorcycles into three wheel motorcycles. By installing this kit this would alter or modify the original design of the motorcycle and could affect the emission control systems that were certified by the manufacture through ARB. As part of the settlement it was agreed between both parties that Motor Trike Inc. would not install, sell, offer for sale or advertise in California, any device intended for use with, or as part of, any required motor vehicle pollution control device or system which alters or modifies the original design or performance of any such motor vehicle pollution control device or system unless it has first received an exemption from ARB. Motor Trike Inc. also paid penalties in the amount of $25,000.00 to the California Air Pollution Control Fund as part of the settlement.
