That's wild, lee. Back in the 70's a company sold something called "the lowrider" which was a small fiberglass superlow slung one-man sports car frontend you bolt on to a motorcycle back for power, and you ride only inches above the ground.

Tank has a 150cc scooter called the Courier 150 with a top and windshield. And Diamo has the Velux, a convertible top scooter. But this full bodied three wheeler you found is wild, and very cool.

As long as it could be registered as a motorcycle, then it could be registered in the U.S., otherwise federal laws would ban it if was considered an automobile due to established standards.

Lee Ward:

Hmmm, right - crash standards would kill this here in the US, I suppose.

Well let's do this -- let's import one and classify it as an experimental vehicle, then hire a crash-test dummy to drive it around a test circuit at 70 mph and see what happens.

Paul Hamilton:

Top Gear kicks ass. I wish Speed Channel would pick it up and broadcast it in this country. Right now, all we get is an occasional, very old episode on Discovery.
