Default 3 wheeled motorcycle.

Is it ever possible to have a bike trike, registered, classed and body type as
a motorcycle but on the wheel plan it states 3 wheeled.

No, i think you missunderstood me,

where it says body type and taxationclass, is it ok if it says MOTORCYCLE,
but where it says wheel plan it says 3 wheeled.

I hope thats a bit clearer.

I don't think motorcycles exist..My gt750 is a bicycle, mind you what with the wind and vibration over 70 it might as well be. John

volkswagon GX3.... apparently a motorcycle!
But... wasn't there a scooter type thing that had 2 wheels at the back that were only about 2 inches apart so was still classed as a bike, info is lurkiing at the back of the memory somewhere but has been drowned by cheesey 80's music thanks to Hermann!

yup, ariel 3, the ped that bankrupted bsa/villiers, and the honda sream, both 3 wheeled scooters with a pivot so the front end could lean whilst both back wheels stayed on the rd, and both utter pants!

but a sidecar is classed as an accessory,and as such, its not entered onto the vehicle reg document, strange anomoly to the rules, but true all the same.

Pants maybe, but, motorcycle or trike? Doesn't there have to be a minimum distance between the wheels or summat for it to be a trike? Dunno, just a thought.....

Default bike/trike

also brough superior built a 3 wheeled bike, with the back wheels about 12 inches apart using a morris car engine, with a differential between the two back wheels, made solely for pulling sidecars.
in short, if the two rear wheels are less than a certain distance apart, then its still classed as a motorcycle, but you couldnt bild a trike that way, cos i think that the distance apart is under 2 foot.

then its illegal, and eventually, the dvla will start to persecute us all cos there are shedloads of v8 chevvy engined spaceframed tikes running round on reliant v5's, i take it that the trike in question isnt a 1970's 50cc moped then? bet it doesnt use the original engine, chassis or wheels? cos time will come that the dvla will start to address this, just like they did when people started registering rh sidecar cossaks as trikes, they sussed that people were taking the piss, and they stopped it happening.

they ride really dubiously i must say! you can lean the front right over but that doesnt stop the rear wanting to roll over so they are pretty damn dangerous if your not carefull!

but seeing a bloke dressed up in leathers on one much be a classic sight! and as they are classed as tricycles you dont have to wear a lid
