1956 Harding ‘Model C’ TWS Tricycle

 THE WORLD’S MOST STUPID TRICYCLE?

(Option to purchase 26cc Cyclemaster Wheel/engine to motorise it)

This is another wonderful ‘white elephant’ vintage vehicle, so described because it is not particularly stable when you ride it. In theory, two wheels at the front should make a tricycle easier to ride. But when the wheels are small, as in this contraption, they are more affected by adverse road conditions – ie you need to hold on tight if you hit a rock. Also, unless the machine is well-maintained, there’s a danger of the steering jamming at full travel. Of course, all these adversities add up to its ‘white elephant’ status and make it very collectible half a century later.

As you can see, this particular example is in excellent condition, having been well restored and cherished by its previous owner.
