Why so negative? Everyone giggles running a gocart up and down the street. This could turn your whole town into a gocart track. Wait! That would be irresponsible and need regulation.

Forget it, it would never work.

Default Re: Mercedes had a much cooler version

They did it in 1912. See web site http://www.prewarbuick.com/id256.htm



The Flxible sidecar company - which later changed over to making buses. OK, so it's a side car instead of a three wheeler, but with the same idea. That's why they called it "Flxible". Any new ideas out there? Double overhead cams with 4-valve heads were invented by Recaro even earlier, and you could buy heads like this for your Ford Model T - if your 3-bearing poor metalurgy crank could take it.

Saw something like that a couple of months ago here in St. Augustine. Weird at best. And there was a chrome, all chrome, including fairings sport bike with him. The bike had a drag style swing arm extended about 2 feet. Neither one looked much fun to ride but definitely got attention. And full straight pipe exhaust on both. Loud suckers.

Its great the guy had a dream and followed it through ,but there are at least a dozen similar designed machines that have already been in production.The one designed and built in Holland would have to be the best handling and coolest looking one,unfortunatly I can't recall the company name.

Insane stuff.



Problem is the MSRP is somewhere over $40,000..



It'd be nice if someone actually made something that costs less (similar to motorcycle/small car price) and is still as much fun. It'd also be nice to keep the motorcycle controls.



I like how they keep the bike shift pattern but I don't like how they use a car-style clutch pedal and gas pedal.



Think they offer test drives for people who couldn't afford one?
