For something rather different

Post by neale » Wed Jul 04, 2012 4:55 am

This one was put up on a US forum

The scariest part is the number plate that implies that it gets on the road.

It's sorta like some of my ex's, so wrong but strangely appealing ;^)

AEE's twin engine trike, not looking to good in that pic.

I never saw it from the rear. Four fat back tyres. Wow!

Apparently it came up for sale last year ( easier to find once it was identified ;^)

I think that blower would have served both engines quite well.

People were saying that it didn't sell because it got up to 5 grand? I would have thought it was worth way more than that to anyone with a bit of money and interest?

I thought Dave Bracket got it back to restore.
But I am not sure on that.
Anyone got any pics of the original paint job??

Thanks great stuff.
Love how they reversed the left side motor heads so the carb sticks out the left!
And i think the original paint looks better by far.

I certainly preferred the original springer to the dodgy girder, apparently they still had the springer and it's going back on.

From an AEE blog entry, the trike/quike has been bought by a small museum and it's being restored to be put on display.

Also on the blog was a discussion about the original colour, it was apparently an unusual red mix.

To me, the most amazing thing is that they created and rode that in '69/'70.
