Never seen one either, but it looks like a ton of fun! Kind of reminds me of a ripstick.

Motion carried $500 for two sounds like a bargain, even if one does need a little work...

That depends on how you look at it; my interpretation has always been that a bike (bicycle), trike (tricycle) & quad (quad cycle) you sit on, that thing you'd sit in, much like a go kart...

ML-TOYS... please..
whats that left tire you have there??
because I really need to know
It's sooo close

And back to the question:

Three wheels: trike!
And that includes a Vespa APE
But true enough, a trike is not a trike is not a trike...
at least where I am (Dreirad bleibt Dreirad)

And seeing all those Buggies around here called "karts" I think we can just allow calling this a trike as well

That is too cool. Can you post more pics? Did you make that? I see a diff with jointed axles. That is what I'm mostly after. That is slick none the less.

Right now its apart and being cleaned up for paint. Its an Al-Sport trike. I still have a brand new in the box duramax 16hp that may go on it after a few mods to the frame.
Heres a link to it.
