    Brad, I had one years ago. They not known for their top end but are fun to ride. Really blows people away when you back out of a parking spot. You WILL thrill yourself the first time you get her up on two wheels going thru a turn. Ya know what though it's a V twin, made in Wisconsin. Doesn't get any better!

    Keep the dirty side down, Ride Safe

    Ahh, the original Trike.

    I would love to have one for the sake of having it. That would be a blast to cruise around on (slowly)...

    I know that being a newbie has disadvantages, they only remember Cushmans, rather than being lucky enough to have seen one, but the meter maid drivier had me distracted...but here is a pix for those that wax nostalgia...one from 1947. Sure wish I had one in my stable.
