Reverse Trike in Stockholm

I've been traveling and saw this last week in Stockholm... Beautiful ride... really makes me want to build one!





It reminds me a lot of the small custom cars at maker faire when I went a couple years ago... those guys were getting great gas mileage without much aero work, just because of the small frontal area.

This one had uncovered front wheels and a fairly smooth body... There was a V-twin engine set above the front axle, without any body around it, probably for looks, although i'd bet it was air cooled...

Not sure if I would buy one if I had a chance, but I can't deny the Morgan looks interesting to say the least. But I'd rather not have the engine exposed this way.

Nothing made me happier than seeing Morgan producing more of these new from the factory.

Featherweight, super-simple, ridiculously fast and nimble for their size. A Morgan trike at speed must feel like a Lamborghini at Warp Five. I would rock that all day long.

I live about an hour away from the Dragon. I would ABSOLUTELY take that to the Dragon.

They have an undeniable appeal. Anyway, at least they're already available, unlike the Elio...
