I don’t want the trikes to die because a lot of these trikes I want to fix up and want to get back on market so people can get ripping again, on trikes.

Attracting members to his website and building a sense of community is a big part of why Lucas started the business.

I would say the trike community is trustworthy And there are so many that you can start a relationship and make friends with. That’s what I would have to say about the trike community because I’ve never got messed around on by trike people at all.

As well as building a community for trikes. Lucas is trying to drum up support for a cause that’s close to his heart. 

It’s in memory of Irene Golchert — someone that was very close to me. She did a lot for me in this community. And we went on lots of trips together and she was just always there for me. She was a motherly figure for me. So I wanted to donate to a good cause. And that would be brain tumors. And that’s what she passed away with.
