What In The Elio? 1995 Yamaha Trike

This next tip comes from Slowboy who calls it a Weird friggin trike thing and writes; Doesn't look complete, but uh... I dunno. The ad doesn't have a lot of info, and the pictures suck. Have a link.  Don't mind if I do.  Find this 1995 Yamaha Trike offered for $5,000 in Dayton, OH via craigslist.



The 3-wheeled trike is an interesting middle ground in the car versus motorcycle debate.  Trikelodytes claim that they offer the performance of a bike with the practicality of a car, but a part of me worries you'll end up with a vehicle that offers the safety of a motorcycle with performance still car like. Truth be told I've never driven a trike, so maybe the thrill of semi-open-air motoring with a screaming bike engine and squirrely rear would be fun.

  1. We built something like this for our senior project at UCSD. Electric power though. Man it was a heap of crap!

  2. Looking at it, it looks like somebody took a sandrail and grafted a motorcycle onto the back of it. It's probably faster than all but the hottest VW engine builds. The shifter is almost no doubt sequential. I see some potential here. I also see a lot of drugs, so there's that.
