1k: Back From The Future: 1980 XK1 Tri Hawk 3-Wheeler

In the past, the future was a terrible place.  Distopian futurists claimed that we’d all be living in some kind of post nuclear winter land with an oppressive big brother watching us (best case), or fighting for scraps of food (worst case) but that isn’t the worst part. The worst part is the horrible automobiles that futurists dreamed up in what can only be described as a nightmare.  Find this 1980 XK1 Tri Hawk 3 wheel Car/motorcycle here on eBay currently bidding for $1,776 with a few hours to go, located in Carle Place, NY.

Did some builder seriously think that cars would look like this in 35 years when he created/assembled/massacred this combination of fiberglass and motorcycle power.  The best thing you can say about it is that it looks a bit like an X-wing fighter without its wings. 

Power comes from a Honda CX 650cc water cooled twin cylinder engine mated to a 5-speed manual transmission. The motorcycle engine is probably the coolest thing about this build, but three wheels…yikes…
