Age of Three : a brief history of Trikes
The aberration of three-wheeled vehicles in mainstream mobiles on your highway
by Ujjwal Dey

There was always a concept of a three-wheeled vehicle. The tricycle that got motorized. Most of these were owner-created by auto enthusiasts who wanted to custom build their own mean machine for the roads. Now of course, we have really powerful ATVs on three wheels which can give any 4WD a run for its money.

The trike was an increasingly popular form with the front-steering “tadpole” or “reverse trike” sometimes with front drive but usually with rear drive. This was practical due to better safety when braking.

Three-wheeler cars, including some cyclecars, bubble cars and microcars, are built for economic reasons. For example, in the UK there were tax advantages, or in the US to take advantage of lower safety regulations when being classed as motorcycles. As a result of their light construction and potential better streamlining, three-wheeled cars are usually less expensive to operate.

Simply “The King” : The Trikes of Elvis Presley
During the 1970s craze for Trikes, legend Elvis Presley rode these with joy

“I wasn’t popular in school … I failed music—only thing I ever failed. And then they entered me in this talent show … when I came onstage I heard people kind of rumbling and whispering and so forth, ’cause nobody knew I even sang. It was amazing how popular I became after that.” – Elvis reminiscing about his 1953 song and dance routine.

In 1954, Elvis finally got himself a job as a truck driver. A job many of us who dream and chase dreams know as the job that pays the bills for the expensive hobby of dreaming.

In the summer of 1975, Elvis bought several Trikes (three wheeled motorcycles), the first of which was a 1975 Rupp Centaur with a 340cc two stroke engine. Within weeks two other types would follow. They were the 65 bhp, 1600cc Volkswagen engine trikes based on Ed Roth designs. The two VW Trikes were seen many times on the road with Elvis Presley riding it in and out of his Graceland home.
