2 KIT CARS FOR SELL TOGETHER TRIMUTER TRIKE & HONDA ARIEL ATOM KIT CAR SOLD TOGETHER VERY RARE FIND . BOTH NEED WORK YOU NEED A TARILER AND 500$ IN HAND TAKES BOTH U STILL HAVE TIME TO GET THEM READY FOR THE SUMMER. I WILL GIVE U A BILL OF SELL

TRIMUTER TRIKE VIDEO:

ARIEL ATOM REPLICA:


Below are the photos in the ad.

The first pic seems to be of the Atom that is actually for sale.

The second & sixth pics (& the videos) seem to be of a different Atom
(notice how the frame sits differently as compared to the wheels, different seats & no roll bar)
...maybe it's the inspiration vehicle?

The Trimuter seems to be complete
...who knows how well it's built, how long ago or if any issues

Their homemade/self built "kit cars" so the "Bill of Sale" thing doesn't seem out of the ordinary, but...

...the ad has been up for ~2 weeks now (scam?)
...in New York City?
...Too good to be True?
...Any thoughts?

And it’s been flagged already. I would agree with fake or just a stupid awesome deal. The Ariel looks to be muffler tubing tho !

If you notice, both projects are built by different people. On top of that, the lack of pictures with them both side by side is another red flag.
