The engine is a 231 V6 Buick mated to a 5 speed manual Corvette Transmission (T5). With this combo there is plenty of acceleration and great cruising speed too. She truly is easy to ride and so much fun.
There's appoximately 32000 miles on the trike. She is proven to be reliable, safe, and fun. And economical on the gasoline too. Driven conservatively she'll easily do over 35mpg. Depends on your right foot. And she will happily run on regular.
The rear is from a Mazda Miata which probably explains why she handles so lightly and nicely. Even has seatbelts for the safely minded rider(s).
DOESN'T THIS JUST SAY IT ALL?
Front end is from an older goldwing with added shocks to give it that "Springer" look and a reinforced ride.
There is so much amazing engineering that went into this trike. The previous owner is a rancher but he should have been an automotive engineer.
And what makes this more unusual is he lost his right arm years ago in an accident so he purposely made this trike incredibly easy to steer and ride.
