MRI Builds Thumper Trike
The Tumper trike has 2 TV's, 2 amps, and 2 cameras. Over 50 yards of fiberglass went into stretching and widening the trike body.
The front fender, fuel tank, bars, motor mount, fairing, speedo housing, exhaust system, sub box, TV housings, the actuated trunk door, rear bumper along with the highly modified trike body were all hand made in house at MRI.
All the running, brake and turn signal lights are flush mounted in the body. The two amps combine for around 1000 watts.
In late 2003, Risley received his Master of Technology award. At that time, he was the youngest Master of Technology in the world and the youngest to ever receive this award.
“In August of 2005, I opened Matt Risley Innovation. My goal was to have a one stop shop where customers could have everything from tires and service to the custom bike that they always dreamed of.
