Ford Trike??? 5 Years ago  
A buddy of mine sent me this pic of a homemade trike that was taken at a Lowe's somewhere in Mississippi. It appears that this guy took a Ford Escort front- & rear-end, slapped them together & attached his old Yamaha(?) front-end to the hood & uses the Escort's front-wheel-drive engine & transaxle to power it. It's ugly, but resourceful!

Who needs a Ural, build your own Ford/Yamaha tri-wheeled outfit! I guess this guy could be considered a double-Darksider!

This is the guy that probably built the first of that type.

He works with what he has or what he can afford.
The only thing that I can fault him for is using a Ford.

Re:Ford Trike??? 5 Years ago  
I met that guy that builds trikes in Arkansas at a rally. His trikes are kinda crude, but he rides them everywhere and they have some real interesting "Down home" engineering. I think they are great! Also, he's a real nice ole' country boy. I think he's what it's all about. He takes some parts and creates something that he likes and rides the fool out of it!

So, you could end up with 3-wheel steering if you weren't careful!
