1899 Cycle Components Trike
14/6/2011. National Motor Museum - Beaulieu.
Eat your hearts out trike owners just take a look at this!! And it does wheelies real easy!!
1899 Made by Cycle Components and Ariel Cycles in Birmingham.
20mph - 239cc - £79.
Why wheelies? Well it has a De Dion Bouton engine mounted behind the rear wheels.
Actually take the engine off and it looks just like my trike when I was about 5 years old complete with just one brake!!!
