    Where did this come from ??? lots of parts I have never seen on any TRI-SPORT . There is a lot of work to be done and a full wallet of cash to make it worthwhile.

    I agree ,it is in dismal array. This Alsport is not real far from me but needs to much.

    This was made by a division of arms industries in mansfield Ohio, BGW. The body was designed and build by John Plessinger whom created the 1st three wheeler the tri-cart. 340cc Kohler engine, rubber u- joints, more robust frame than the Alsports, and no plastic on the fiberglass body! I talked with Plessinger a few years back, and he said you could drive this at 70mph and let go of the handlebars and it would track straight. I tried it, he was right! 850 is steep, but these are real rare, and we consider the Cadillac of trikes!

    Steve, I really don't know. I've seen 5 of these in my travels, and have owned 3. My buddy still has 1. Production had to be low, if I had to guess, 500?? But that's a total guess.

    How much could the rubber u-joints take? I have a TRI ROD with the rubber u-joints. I was thinking of changing them for metal u-joints. Maybe I might see what they will take -img_3074-jpg
