Default Well, make that 3 Wheels - and nostalgia
Does this remind you of your childhood?



This is the 9' three-wheeled motorcycle inspired by the Green Machine, the classic big-wheeled pedaled tricycle from the 1970s. Its proportion, color scheme, and striking 45" diameter front wheel--the world's largest--are so convincing, it compelled the toy's 1975 designer to see the motorcycle for a side-by-side comparison with the original toy. At its heart rumbles an air-cooled, 80" cu. Harley-Davidson v-twin Evo--hailed by some as the engine that saved the iconic company--providing 60 horsepower for speeds up to 50 mph. The front wheel is driven by a chain housed in a protective cowling that replicates the toy's frame and, like its predecessor, the cycle is steered by two handheld push/pull levers that control the two rear wheels via a directional linkage. The hand levers include brakes while a foot lever controls its manual 6-speed transmission. Its 8 1/2-gallon fuel tank is built into the frame, hidden from view, providing a range of 400 miles. 9' L x 4 1/2' W x 45" H. (450 lbs.) Order by November 15 for Christmas delivery.

Made by: Hammacher Schlemmer

I hope you were extra good this year, cuz Santa's gonna have to drop $75K if you put it on your list!
