Not sure why, but I'm digging this one. Saw it on Pinterest and just had to share. Check out the hand windscreen wiper, and the manual turn signals (I'm assuming there is a matching one on the starboard side).



I want to make one of these!

It looks Dr. Seussian, but should be great in a rain storm. What's that little white wheel for sticking out in front? Is the delta trike that unstable that it needs a wheel there for when it starts to tip?

It is a very small triangle formed by the 1 front and the 2 back tire contact points. Easy to move the CG outside of it when turning.

This design looks more like an attempt to cheat the weather than to be aerodynamic. I'll bet its rear-wheel steering, which would seriously necessitate the white wheels. I'll bet a long curvy downhill is sheer terror in this.

It reminds me of a Reliant Robin automobile, which was also very prone to tipping over.

Reminds me of when my grand kids watch Thomas the Train! I wonder if that is Sir Topham Hatt standing next to the velo?
