This one was to good not to share

Just like most of you I frequent many message boards and yahoo groups. I am also a fan of reverse trikes. Enter the Sceadu SD-1 . At first glance  (as well as 2nd and 3rd) is is not the most visually appealing trike on the market. In fact is is an ugly duckling if you ask me. But it is growing on me. How could it not?

What attracts me to it is the simplicity of it. It comes in kit form for around $2500 . In addition you will need to supply an engine such as a GX series honda (go cart engine) and some other items. I bet for about the $3500-$4000 range you could have one of these up and running.

Apparently you can even make these things road legal. I can see how it would be a fun little grocery getter. If you want more information on this neat little kit check out http://sceadu.com/products_sd1.html . I do not know them, but if you buy one be sure to let them know you found them on fiberclassics.org

    Put a cool roll bar on it and you are all set. Popular Mechanics did something called the Suburba Car same concept as the Sceadu SD-1. The Sceadu SD-1 should be much more stable it’s nice to see an idea recycled and improved .

    I would imagine the people who did the Sceadu never saw the Suburba car plans. It’s just one of those concepts that pops up because it makes sense.

    Here is a link to the Suburba car article http://www.scribd.com/doc/2532291/Suburba-Car-Chassis-for-A
    I have the Popular Mechanics hard bound book set that features their projects from the 1960’s.
