WOW!, What a blast from the past. When I was 12, my dad and uncle built me a three-wheeler like this one. I had tore up a go-cart in the spring of that year and my uncle got a Honda 100cc bike at a garage sell that had been rear-ended. Between the two rides and creativity of the two country boys, they made me a 100cc go-cart with three wheels.

Mine would dig nice trenches with those hard rear tires.

Alas, the trike did not last too long, less than a month before I tore it up as well. I was jumping it on the whoop-ti-doos and busted the rear axel and tore the seat off with me still in it. What a great machine while it lasted!

Ok, I can see the front end of a REAR wheel drive car as a poor man weld it together and see if it works kinda thing.

But unless I am mistaken, that "trike" has the engine between the rear wheels. NO THANKS !
:oops:

EDIT: wow, think about mass in motion and crumple zone and seating position. . .

I love the "bug" trike and trailer!

As to the camper, looks like an automotive engine in the bike frame. V6 or V8.

Thanks, I tried a search and didn't see it. And it is actually street legal, it's a little thing.

I think if I was spending $4,000 on a bike it would have more then 171 cc.
They sell them in Arlington, Texas. You need to go get you one.
Might be too big for me. 😉
One thing for sure, he was only going about 30 and most folks run at least 50 with a 45 limit and about to get run over.
