After over a year of me trying to persuade him to build a kit car ( so I can see him suffer as I have ) and sell his 600cc bike I may be getting some where lol

mr whippy don’t think that was the look he was thinking of but i see your point lol

When I die, I want to go peacefully like my Grandfather did, in his sleep -- not screaming, like the passengers in his car.

Looks great,

...at least i'm sure it would be great until the first corner where it either goes straight on or rolls and crushes you!!

Looks quite cool, but as with all 'quads' it's fundamentally flawed: it has the high COG (relative to track) of a bike but without the ability to lean, thus dramatically increasing weight transfer to the outside wheels and reducing the maximum cornering force you can achieve before tipping.

French legislation doesn't allow anything like that on their roads though according to someone who used to post on here he couldn't even build his own car and register it over there. That would be over the limit for quad classification on UK roads, the HP is way too high.





yours, Pete

I went into the RSPCA office the other day. It was so small you could hardly swing a cat in there.

I've seen this one at the "Essen" motor show.
Not quite a locost with a starting price of €38.000.

Think I read somewhere that it is restricted to 40hp (or some other stupidly low number) to be legal in France.

www.brp.com -> can am roadster. It`s similar but 3 wheel and therefore it can be registered on the road in EU without power restrictions.

They are registerable in France - caught one at the Cannes boat show last year with French plates - made by GG Quad
Had BMW bike engine and was really smart.
