    How do you mean cheaper?
    Hold the front brake on hard, blip the throttle, up you go ............
    But they can be dangerous, especially if you lean on the tank thinking its going to go around an obstacle, it wont.
     
  2. We bought it from neighbours (20 years ago) who replaced it with a Honda 400 quad. The 400 used over twice the fuel!

    This one had cost very little to run and we have no hills so it's fairly safe.

    Have very fond memories of the 110. they started a revolution on the moors.
    There is still a place for cheap , reliable and uncomplicated transport

    Always felt the 3 wheeler was safer than the 4.
    Was great fun watching bike riders trying to ride them

    They don't cost much to make. I make them all the time and charge £450 for them

    The mkII version (mkI featured in the bodge thread as it was really the rappa tied on the front with bale string).
    Quick hitch type bracket bolted on the front of quad because I hope sometime to make some other 'accessories' to go on there. Rappa comes off so can still use as originally intended. 20180114_111212.jpg 20180114_111108.jpg 20180114_111122.jpg

    I had some weights lying around on an old A frame so decided to make up another front box big enough to take my tray testing gear whilst fert spreading as I'm fed up chucking it in and out the hopper so started off with some bits and pieces and ended up with something useful

    I started with a Reekie bedformer frame cut an old tombstone weight in half and got some new 6mm sheet for the box
