Hope this isn't a repost Just saw it on a car forum. No info about it available.
Sure is ugly. Even worse than some of my projects!
I'd bet that was built for/by someone with a handycap.
I'd be worried about the cooling.
The round hunk of steel near the swing-arm pivot tells me he had to add a big balast . Maybe the wheel base was too short or the weight too high ?
Good point. With the rider in it, I bet the center of gravity is way forward. Danger of flippity when he hits the brakes (if any).
I think it is an early prototype of the Mars rover.
I would ride/drive something like that, if the seat was more in the middle! Ugly is groovy! The uglier, the better!
Well, ugly in a good way. That one has it! A lot of, um, "custom motorcycles" don't. :3
I don't think that's a counter weight, I think it's a traction issue.
I'd want a hoop that went in an arch up the front to the rear headrest - so that if it went OTF it wouldn't land on my face.
I'm digging the McPherson Strut front end...probably rides great, unless there's just not enough weight...then it's probably pretty bouncy.
On second thought, ride quality doesn't look to have been a priority.
What were the priorities?
I'll bet it is absolutely a flippity-flopper if you're not careful. The three wheel Messerschmidt's were muy famouso for flopping on their sides. But, it still looks like a heck of a lot of fun. I think it needs a propeller on top.
Mad Max is getting up there in years, guess he needed a trike for his outback adventures!
That thing is so fugly, I would ride it, but then again, I like Rokons.
