    Commuter

    That trike would be a Commuter Industries TE390 made in Cascade Iowa.
    It should have a Kawasaki motor W/Elec start.
    I have one that I will load a picture of from my computer.

    It looks like a Sasquatch. Not the beast, but the trike, google it.

    It's a pacesetter built in the early 1970's. Pasesetter Enterprises was then sold and renamed Commuter Industries in 1976. I worked for them from 1978 to 1984 when we made te380,te390,
    sasquatch,granger. In the late 80's they developed the 5 wheeler which became the John Deere AMT then the gator.
