This next car is an interesting piece of work…and where it gets really interesting is when the seller says it has a 4-cylinder aircooled engine, but it isn’t a VW. So, who else built air-cooled 4-cylinder engines that could be easily adapted to drive the front wheels of an oddball? How about Citroën? They made a car in the 1970s-80s called the GS (and later the GSA) that fit the bill and a crazy man named Lou Richards designed this thing and Hawk Vehicles in California that built about 100 of these things before the rights were apparently sold to Harley Davidson. Find this 1984 Tri-Hawk 3-Wheeler offered with a starting bid of $10k in Boerne, TX via eBay. Tip from Hugh.
I see a surprising number of those Polaris Slingshot 3-wheelers tooling around the streets of SoCal these days, and I’ve always assumed they are rentals, because who would pay $20k-$35k for a motorcycle that can’t split lanes. More importantly, who would pay that much money for a futuristic shaped 3-wheeler when you can get a vintage version with a Citroen 4-cyliunder for less than half the price? Find this 1984 Trihawk 304 offered for $12,000 in Los Angeles, CA via craigslist. Tip from Rock On!
The modern version of the three wheel automobile has taken a decidedly sporty approach (with the exception of the Elio…which will probably never actually be sold in any decent quantity) with things like the Slingshot and the Campagna T-Rex…but it wasn’t always this way. There was a time when a three wheeler was just a […]
The Reliant Robin was introduced in 1973 to a surprised and skeptical public, but the 70 miles per gallon fuel economy and affordable asking price were enough to sway a few folks who were not put off by a lack of sway bar. Find this 1980 Reliant Robin offered for $2,500 in Downingtown, PA via […]

The allure of 3-wheeled hoonage bursts from the skin of any Morgan Cyclecar like a fresh Botox bruise on the face of a Beverly Hills housewife. Sure, they might be getting up there in age and not able to keep up with the latest models, but fun is just a curve away if you can […]

The What Am I? feature from this week was a particularly dastardly image from the front of a Felber Autoroller T 400 — which isn’t a steam roller or a cuticle trimmer, but a 3-wheeler built in Vienna that fits two adult and one baby panda, but that’s not imporant. What is important is that […]
