I'm Russ Kasten

While in Sturgis 40 years ago, I came across a VW trike with a Harley engine. I loved it! When it came time for me to build my own Harley powered Volkswagen, I discovered all the adapter builders no longer were in business.

Being a retired tool maker, I decided to build my own adapter. Peers convinced me to patent and sell my adapters. So, here we are, the design is complete and ready for you to purchase. Enjoy building and driving your Harley powered Volkswagen... I have been having a real Hoot with mine.
