G'day from the Great Southern land,

Just been watching a nifty program called "Beyond tomorrow"...(sorta educational....doh!!)

They displayed a brilliant piece of engineering from an Alan Martin, UK designer, that married an 850BMW boxer motor to the rear end transmission of a car to form a Trike.

Seen here at http://www.pdpconquest.com

6 speed sequential gearbox, plus reverse, all operated from 3 buttons mounted under the throttle grip.

Price they quoted was $45,000 Oz, which was expected to less with better/more production techniques.

This machine looks as revolutionary as did the K12LT back in '99 and would not be out of place standing alongside it.

What a great machine for those unlucky enough to have to be permanently accompanied by yet another set of two wheels.

Phill

'78 XS1100E "The Tardis" (ret)
'99 K1200LT "Beryl Beemer"

That looks like a great set up but reading the info it said the 1150 motor was being used not the 850. Which to me seems like the better choice.
