History of the Cycle Car....
invention intended to beat the road tax and provide inexpensive
transportation, the cycle-car (or 'trike' as the Brits term it)
consisted of two steered wheels ahead with a driven rear wheel. Cycle-cars were
typically powered by narrow angle, long stroke v-twins borrowed from
motorcycles of the day, principally J.A.P. & Matchless. Several manufacturers
built Cycle-cars between the teens and early fifties - most notable was the
Morgan three wheeler.
