Kwakka, hows the replica going? I dont really know much about those 3wheel/4wheel things.


a few years ago, We camped on a dry creek bed south of bungonia nat park (north of braidwood NSW). I bogged my 2wd 81 Corona lift back. A couple of guys on trikes and atv's (who had kept us awake all night hooning around) helped push us out. (they firstly wanted to try towing my car!!)

Aren't there two types of trikes, the ones that are built to be trikes and the ones custom built out of a HD car parts?

oh yeah Plain Mad - that is right, there are the normal trikes for dirt action, and then there are those VW-powered things with diffs and big lounge seats - Harley engines are pretty popular with the (road) trike mob. Recently saw some good photos of a crazy Kiwi who has built a trike with 350Chev small-block, had this weird kind of 'tiller'steering, what a nightmare to drive.
