I know we all have that special little toy. But you ever come across this before?

I remember those generic machines from the 70's back when Honda was just starting to buiild the small 3 wheeled ATV's. Machines like that were the beginning of the modern ATV industry.

I remember those a little, pretty sure one of the neighbor kids had one when we were growing up.
I never owned a three wheeler, the year I was in the market was the year that Suziki first came out with a 4 wheeler. Still own it.
My FIL still has a three wheeler, but doesn't ride it nearly as much as the 4 wheeler.

I remember them well. I never owned one but rode them. They would flip very easily. People were having too many accidents on them because of lack of stability.

Oh my gosh!i  I had one of those many years ago!  I can't remember the brand name, even though mine had all the decals on it.  Just too long ago for my brain.  Mine had an 8hp Briggs on it.  It was a blast to ride, and I never had any issue with turning it over, but then that's mostly up to the rider's skill/style/dumb luck.  The worst thing about them was the fact they beat you to death on rough ground!

That's it...Stomper!  That's exactly what I had!  Mine was an 8hp model though, with TC.  It would really move too!

I remember them as well. I was stationed in Spain and we would read about them in the Mag's.  We still preferred our dirt bikes.

A friend of mine got one that I kept trying to buy from him . He finally stretched it out and put a second axle in the rear and then someone came up and offered hims stupid money for it and he sold it.

Such a sad thing to hear! These frames actually resemble a chopper frame because of hear the rear is set up. There's enough space to fit a wide rear tire between the frame rails just like a motorcycle would. I haven't seen any to this day of the same thing as mine.

I had a 1983 Yamaha Tri Moto 3 200cc. Dad made me buy it when he came home from work early and caught me riding his 1984 Big Red. Hard lesson learned for a 14 year old. I could ride wheelies for miles on that Yamaha

We still have two Honda three wheelers; managed to roll one over on myself while going up a hill checking fence about ten years ago. Not pretty, but didn't hurt anything too badly but my pride, lol  In the 70's our boys had Honda 80 street bikes that were a lot of fun but not worth a darn for chasing cows!
