Well I guess I've been lying to myself, but isn't the definition of a trike a vehicle with three wheels?

I guess a T-rex, Blackjack Avalon, Morgans, or the hundreds of other Reverse
Tr.. I mean Cars have no business being called trikes?

I guess ill go change the name to:
farfergnugengocartvwsuzukicrotchrocketdunebuggycar thinggymagjiggythatisnotatrikenotatrikenotatrike nota trike nota trike.... Whew

Call it whatever you want, its still a hell of alot of fun!

Hmm, they'd tell us backward trikes to feck off top a bike/trike forum as they are tested as trikes, eg msva. Looks like fun

Car forums the place for that.

Well I'm off to the garage to cut off the steering wheel & mount some ape hangers I turn the seats around & drive it in reverse Then is it a trike?

Cool, a busa with reverse!

nice looking machine, bet those headlights are a tad ineffective for the speed that can do!!

Handlebars, sitting on it and direct steering make it a bike trike.


Its a waste of a good bike engine.

If you want to post and boast, why don't you put it on a site where it belongs like R3w with the Reliants, Morgans, Peel's , Bonds , Grinnel's and Curvers etc. There are also a few kitcar makers that produce kits similar to your machine but at least they have the decency to call them what they are, KITCARS

If you want to see a proper trike with 2 up front, try and find pics of the one sbeachill built last year. The one's that were on this forum have now gone but someone maybe able to find them for you.
I'm not arguing with you it is a car type trike, but it's still a trike proper or not, I never seen anything here that the Trike forum was only for single front wheel bike type trikes, as I remember seeing a Blackjack Zero in the last issue of Trikes magazine. I guess on your opinion that does not belong in there either as that is also a car based trike with a bloody steering wheel.
Hate it or love it, at least you have a passion for something.

Are you running a car tyre on bike rim at the rear? Hows that done then? found a good match or had the rim reprofiled for car tyre beading?
