Xzilarator reverse trike plans for sale

Hi, I bought the plans for the Xzilarator a while back (The Homebuilt, Reverse Trike, Three Wheeler Xzilarator), but haven't had a chance to do anything with them yet. Anyone interested in the plans? Original price is $89 plus shipping, I'll sell for $60 shipped.

That looks cool. Is it really only capable of 30mpg?

I suppose that would depend on how what engine is used and how it's tuned, and I think you could gain a little bit my enclosing it a little more.

Having never built one, I wouldn't really know for sure...

It only looks like it was built as an efficient vehicle, but it isn't.

Overweight (heavier than a Gold Wing); over-engined (1500 cc Gold Wing engine); shaft-drive if he used the GW transmission; fully exposed front wheels; too wide wheels (185 and 160, likely not LRR); sides of the cockpit are open, causing lots of drag.

Cure those flaws, and it will be a lot more efficient.
