Unexpected Motor – 1986 Porsche 928S Powered Trike

In 3 Wheels, America, Custom by AbhiLeave a Comment

Porsche has gotten involved in motorcycle engine design before – they were brought on to help develop the Revolution motor for Harley-Davidson’s V-Rod back in 2002.

The most popular of the classic Vespas in the US, the “P-series” debuted in 1977 with 125, 150, and 200cc variants. The frames were the same – all that different was the motor and the model name.
