It would need a slight styling update to keep up with the more modern 3wheelers, but the Plans did look interesting at the time.

It is an older design, personal I would like a modern Lambo style make over and a small(less heavy) looking rear. Still for an 80's design it is good.

Loved the new FIREAERO ACX. Unable to find more about this than your links. I know CKC now have a reporter in the USA you must get have the ACX add to his list of car to see at once. Hopefully I will one day be able to own one, yes I like it that much.

I believe these are connect to the T-Rex car. I like that more.

Found this yesterday...





I think it looks great before that ugly red body was fitted (front and back just do not fit with each other, then these that cabin!). Just a two wheel arches and a cycle wing on the front to make it legal would work better! (Please anybody (fuoriserie) design a better body for this!) I am unclear as to how the front steering/suspension works. Looks big for just one seat.

Found this intresting yellow three wheeler on line...

Not shore about that fule tank. Looks a bit unsafe to me. Is it safer under your chest on a bike? Hope this inspires some of you.

I think I know what that will look like. I will say if I'm right or wrong after you post the design. I personal I see the Velorex as a enginear's design, not a designer's. Hope you design this to use both a soft cloth body and a hard bodyshell.

Very cheeky! I would not want to roll one. Still interesting, did you know the chassis has a very good racing history.



Here is the car that prove how good the chassic is. I love the looks of this, not so much the road car.

I agree, it's more of an engineers design, but could do with some styling input...

Has anybody in the past, used the Honda Deauville engine and shaft drive in a threewheeler kit?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Honda_Deauville

You could have the same engine and shaft drive on the Honda NTV 650 Revere.

Maybe an engine to consider ?

Three interesting postings.

I have seen the car on the Internet, but did not know how it was built. A very cleaver construction technique, that can be done anywhere by any one who can used basic tools. Will you be showing this to your co-workers at CKC for Project X? As to the car itself...



You can find out more by using the link below...

This makes me think of a Messerschmitt car of the late 50-60's. I do wonder how easy it is to use the rear seat.

It also made me think of these two VW concept cars...





I like bits of both, but the green is my favorite. Both have 4 wheels but would make a great starting point for a three wheeler. I would use the roof line from the silver one on the the rounder lower half of the green, for a very interesting modern three wheeler.
