VW Trike


This started life as a 1970 type 1 VW Beetle and was modified into a Trike using the original 1600cc Air-Cooled Engine, 4 Speed Gearbox & the Rear Suspension.

A new “One Off” chassis was made from 4mm wall mild steel tubing.

Dashboard Housing, Rear Mudguards, Side Panels, Fuel Tank, Battery & Tool Boxes are fabricated from 2mm Mild Steel Sheet.

Handlebars & Seat bases are “One Off”

All the above were designed & fabricated by owner.
dont
Front Forks & Wheel are from a VF750 Honda

Will have 12 months MoT, Taxed 'til 04/10
 
Yours for only £3250, before I advertise it elsewhere.

Tis a shame Pete, but if other projects call, something has to go I guess. A nicely built machine. Buy it quick someone.

Our neighbour's V8 Range Rover's just run out of tax & only got a couple of months of tax left. He was told last year it wouldn't pass another test. Might be up for grabs soon.

Sorry for delay Lunatic. Hope the next project will be a forward engined trike so I'll give the scooby a miss.
