    We have been working with a customer that is developing a reverse trike vehicle in Texas.
    He is using our front suspension parts for this

    Awesome!

    I've always wondered how a long travel reverse trike would do in the dunes!
    Big wide paddle in the rear and a ton of drift!

    Wheels,
    sorry I have no pics without the body, just seen the video and thought I would share.
    I would guess it is just the back half of the bike coupled to a small frame and front suspension.

    rgvkid,
    ya that would be cool and different to see.
    at that point,,,, maybe just throw a 4 stroke snowmobile and track on the rear

    hmmmmmmmm snowmobile with a cockpit and roll cage and I live in Michigan

    As a builder of a functional trike, I'm always interested when I see someone going about making one - as I'm curious about their goals of the project and motivation behind it... so I decided to check out their website.

    The purpose of a "leaning" trike in my mind is to allow it to be narrow and still be stable. Their prototype is not narrow, although some of the CAD models on the website are. Their patent pending technology (pending meaning they probably don't have anything patentable but still went through the process of applying) claims to answer an 80 year old question on how to make a leaning trike? Please.

    If someone wants to kick me $80k I'd be happy to modify my CozE to lean... their PATENT PENDING!!!!!! lean control system could be programmed in a few hours and tuned with about a weeks worth of testing (could be done 1 of 2 ways, speed based, accelerometer bascd, or both with about $100 worth of arduino parts) - I'll also program in the functionality to know when you are in the drive-through at McDonalds so it doesn't lean and spill your coffee all over the place!

    No mention of what powers it... just lots of mention of NASA

    Lol, musta hit an engineering nerve

    The guy wanted to build something and did.
    Good for him.
    Yes,,,,maybe he added to much hype
    But from all the renditions you can tell it us his passion and dream.

    Ok, back to snow machines,,
    I need one of these
