Yes, I think "beautiful" is stretching it just a tad.

Soon to be found grounded on the first speed bump it comes across.

I just don,t "Get it",
I like Trikes, but I just don,t get it when the back end just looks like a bike that has run into something, it even still has the bikes original seat.
No doubt its a nice kit to build but think more could be done to take away the look of a motorcycle running into a Bond Bug.

cheers

I think it looks OK... I think I would have at least removed the bike seat, though, and the frame/cage doesn't look like it has much cross-bracing.

Also, it's presumably not in the UK as there's no windscreen wiper

I was thinking the same. If he hits anything it's going to flat pack itself.

The faired version looks better but still pretty industrial.
Do they have speed bumps in the 'states?

Seems they don't have rain either (no wipers).

Quickly followed by the bike running over the end result.

Prefer the "hot rod helicopter" for $225 (on the same site)



I'm sure a Locoster could knock one up in a couple of weekends using an old scuby engine

But you could carry 2 extra passengers on the bike!


It's not bad , if I built again it would be a trike with a bike in the back........

one idea i had, for comedy value, was something like a roman chariot, but instead of 2 horses, use a pair of motorbikes. Obviously controlled from the chariot end. Would be well funny.
