    A totally unfamiliar model to me.

    But they're certainly cute little machines. They'd be fun for local running around, wouldn't they?

    I had one in the early 90's. They have two rear wheels, with the engine/transaxle pivoted under the seat so that they retain full pavement contact when leaning in a corner. I rode mine all over Houston - it had more than sufficient pep to cruise at surface street speeds, and at the time I weighed about 250. I mounted a basket above the rear assembly on mine - it worked great for grocery shopping and such. I averaged about 90 mpg with it - at the time my car was a loaded 1977 Pontiac Bonneville - I was doing good to get 12 mpg with that beast.

    Like I said, wish I could afford them myself. Maybe I can get my son interested, and split the cost with him.
