An arrangement with two wheels at the front and a single rear wheel further reduces cost since the complete motorcycle engine and drive train can be used without modification. From the driver’s perspective, since he only sees the front wheels, he would get the illusion of being in a conventional race car. The smallest, lightest, lowest cost body would be that of an Indy or Formula 1 car. Careful attention to the details of the front suspension linkage, tire size and type, and CG location would give the desired handling and reduce any tendency to overturn. The vehicle’s body shape was carefully refined with a full-scale clay model using local talent from the Detroit area’s automotive styling studios.

To protect this investment, the Company was issued a Design Patent. A CAD system was used to design the chassis to optimize the structure, suspension and controls for cost and function.  When finished the model was cast and a master plug produced and further refined for surface finish. This plug was then used to produce production molds. To protect this investment, the Company was granted patent US449,018S. A CAD system was used to design the chassis to optimize the structure, suspension and controls for cost and function.  <<BACK
