Tom Ingram lives out near Altoona. He has the white series II that people usually see on the net. I know he has posted information about molds and available kits and I know he has at least one unbuilt kit, but I've never seen Tom mention selling. Maybe our brother GravGuy can hook us up in the future. ;)

I like this thread.. I live and breath 3 wheelers.. These reverse trikes are very interesting.. and they can handle excellent, I think we are just seeing the begining of a new trend.. I like the TriRod style the best,, an extended swing arm so the seat is low and behind the engine.. The TriRod uses a indy style front end but a VW beam could work excellent too... Here is a pic of a mock up of a project that Iv put on the back burner.. Not too hard to build, after where you figure where to put your feet.. note.. not where the tie rods are...LOL

I like the proportions you've designed in the TriRod. I been try'n to sketch out something similar. Do you remember what the wheelbase is? I was look'n at somewhere between 78 to 82 inches. The short WB looks good but is more prone to tipping while the longer is safer on the tip. 4 inches probably doesn't really matter if the CG is low enough. I like the front of the T-Rex but it's just too long for my taste.
Great work!

It was on Craig's List in Altoona area. It was a white one JUST LIKE GravGuy, BUT it was topless. PLUS he had another one that "looked" untouched. I looked for it but can't find it anywhere now. He didn't want to much for it. They were sitting in a gravel parking lot along some road. Thats all I know about it. They look somewhat cool but not my cup of tea.

In a feat of engineering brilliance,
the upper trailing arms interfere with the rear axles,
so nobody will be driving it for a while.

I bet it would ride real nice with that big thick spring on back.


The only thing flexing will be the weak spot in the frame
right below the driver's ass.

OK, turtle, you don't seem to get it. We don't need pics of every three wheeled vehicle made and have you say "what about _______?" If you like something and have something to say, say it. Post something newish that might lead to some discussion.

OK ... fermentin' a wacky idea ... so just out of curiosity, is it possible to set up a Honda Goldwing transmission and drive assembly to accept a drive shaft where the engine used to be? Anybody have a pic of the input side of the tranny where the engine bolts up?
