I was buzzing around Prague today and saw this novel rental car:
Not a bad idea although the roads can be a bit bumpy. The other trikes you see regularly here are just weird little scooters with another wheel up front:
The big question is “Why?”. Need to have a go on one before I dismiss the idea of another wheel up front on a scooter, but can’t see the point of this for now.
So, fancy a Thai massage? No, neither do I, but I really fancy a go in this. Looks like an old Trabant to me:
Haven’t seen it move for a few days but if it does I’ll let you know if it still has the glorious 2 stroke engine they came with. Did the later ones have 4 strokes, not sure?
Finally, saw this battered Citroen CX Safari which looked really cool:
I loved the look of these when I was first getting into cars and they just look madder than ever now alongside modern jelly-mould cars. I’d have one of these in the fleet parked next to the Trabant in the garage for sure.
Off to take a few pictures of Prague’s wonderful Gothic and Art Nouveau architecture now to balance the holiday snaps (and so the wife doesn’t confiscate the camera).August 23, 2013 at 8:26 pm #66699RadarModerator
Interesting stuff there ID.
The later Trabants did switch to four-stroke power…a 1.0 VW unit from the contemporary Polo. Not many were sold however before production stopped around 1991/2.
That little trike did look fun, you should of had a go,,,would of been great for your back!
The twin front wheel thing has been marketed by Piaggio for a few years now, They are sold here in the UK but I have only ever seen a couple. The dealer where my daughter got her moped from sells them.
