1961 BMW R50S with Steib LS200

In 3 Wheels, Germany by AbhiLeave a Comment

The R50S was the little brother of the legendary R69S, and it was a relatively rare motorcycle in BMW’s history as just 1,634 were produced 1960 and 1962. This example was restored in 2012 and it’s been paired with a beautiful color-matched Steib LS200 sidecar.

Ending Soon – “GARMR .003” 2009 Harley-Davidson Reverse-Leaning Trike Custom

In 3 Wheels, America, Custom by Tim HuberLeave a Comment

Post Listing Update: This Harley did not get any interest at the opening ask of $25,000. I’ve never been a big fan of custom trikes, but this one-off Harley isn’t your average three-wheeler. Built by Barghest Motive, this tricked out trike is built around an unspecified 1,200cc V-Twin from a 2009 Harley-Davidson. Dubbed the “GARMR .003”, the trike reportedly gets …

Period Trike Custom – 1952 Harley-Davidson Panhead

In 3 Wheels, America by AbhiLeave a Comment

Post Sale Update: This Panhead sold for $10,453 after 43 bids on eBay. By combining half a Panhead frame and half a Servicar frame, the builder of this custom Harley-Davidson trike has created something infinitely cooler than the average three-wheeler. What does it for me is the inclusion of several period parts, such as the Bates headlight, AEE springer front …

Rare Project – 1983 Honda Gyro X

In 3 Wheels, Japan, Project, Scooter by AbhiLeave a Comment

Post Sale Update: This Gyro X sold for $1,894.13 after 21 bids on eBay. I’ve featured several examples of Honda’s quirky 3-wheeler called the GYRO (which is apparently an acronym for “Great Your Recreation Original.”) The US only got one of the versions, a “S” model that was focused on just carrying a rider around. But Japan got multiple variants …

Electric Conversion – 1985 Trihawk

In 3 Wheels, America by AbhiLeave a Comment

Designed by Lou Richards, the Trihawk 304 (3 wheels, 4 cylinders) was an interesting trike that was capable of cornering forces similar to a Lamborghini Countach (.91G) thanks to the wide front wheelbase and the low center of gravity. Introduced in 1982, the company was able to produce 96 units before Harley-Davidson bought them out in 1985 and stopped production. …
