By the late 1960s, America’s burgeoning custom motorcycle scene included “trikes,” wild three-wheeled choppers inspired by the classic Harley-Davidson Servi-Car that was often used by police departments for parking enforcement. For Evil Iron, Revell’s Los Angeles-based designers started with a chrome-plated twin-cylinder 650 cc engine and reworked a rigid frame to create this far-out three-wheeler’s finely detailed chassis. Up front there is a skinny tire on a 21-inch spoked wheel, while out back a pair of reversed five-spoke mags wear super-wide low-profile boots. Evil Iron’s tongue-in-cheek theme starts with a smiling skull atop the sculpted high-back bucket seat that’s covered with a cloak which flows downwards to become the trike’s body. Other details include a double-edged sword, leg iron headlamps, and studded mace ball taillights. After Revell introduced the 1/8-scale Evil Iron kit in 1971 it soon became the model builder’s favorite fantasy trike. Now Evil Iron is back for the first time in decades, ready for old friends and today’s new generation of dreamers.
