Default ScootCoupe 50CC Reverse Trike

Hello ,

Around my local area we have started seeing a lot of these little 50cc scooters called scootcoupes. Has anyone ever seen these? Im looking for some plans or kits to build one myself. Ive searched some reverse trike projects but nothing seemed similar to these.

Here in South Florida the weather is getting nice and they are fun to cruise up and down the beach with and being that the speed limit is 30 anyway they are perfect.

Something like this would be perfect, I just have no idea what plans he used to build this or if he did it himself.

50cc, two adults, thirty miles per hour... Something's not adding up for me.

WEll.. on level road... that should be possible.. uphill.. I doubt it

it's for all I read a Piaggio 50cc (vespa LX50 or something)
4valve 4 stroke..

those engines propell 300kg to 50km/h all day (~4hp, ~4Nm)
struggling uphill slightly.. but otherwise.. all day
In european terms, that's the scooter plus two adults...

and then there's the Ape (not monkey ape.. 'A-pe' means bee in italian.. nevermind)
a three wheeler small truck with 50cc and even less power carrying 250kg of goods with speeds up to 45km/h

I don't see why the scoot coupe shouldn't be able to do the same

Don't know much about them but they were just starting to catch on in Vegas before I moved back east in 2013. I'd like to get one to mess with at some point.
