Pulse aero trike -- an ecomodder needs this

https://www.facebook.com/marketplace...0505749578757/

Someone here needs to snap this thing up. Aero looks decent, small frontal area. Those headlights need curved lexan covers, but it has some serious potential.





EDIT: just realized after I posted this it has four wheels? Two front-back, and the outriggers. Weird.

I think it does.

He also has several of them in different stages of production (assuming the one under the cover is the same thing).

Looks like sibling of vehicle called "dálník" invented here in the sixties. They were later produced in Switzerland, iirc. The two side wheels are only for takeoff and landing. When you are on speed, they lift up and you basically have an enclosed motorcycle. See Wikipedia article : https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ecomobile.
(They are now built here: https://www.peravescz.com. Would be interesting to know, if the facebook guy bought their patents)

Yeah, my bad. I just found it out here: http://www.autocycles.org/index.html after i moved to my workstation.

Identifying details on my 3 inch phone is sometimes challenging (never mind actual writing)

-- to be honest, both species are noteworthy

A lot of the completed pictures on Google image search show people have removed the fake "jet tail." I had wondered if it was there for crosswind stability, but I guess it doesn't matter much.
