Default Re: Something new and kinda sorta 100 years old looking

Hey! That's a cool lookin' three wheeler! I like that. Hmmm...that gives me an idea: What if I could make a three-wheel with a 50cc scooter engine, and maybe the whole back end. It'd still count as a 50cc scooter, thus not needing registration or licensing, right?

Now suppose we put a Morgan-like body on the thing. Still having three wheels and a 50cc engine, wouldn't the same rules still apply? I could use an upturned aluminum canoe for the body work, hack off one end and make up a classic looking "radiator/grill" to put there... Hmmm...where's my sketchbook? Work to be done.

Thanks Fish, you give me some great ideas.
