    It's very clean, one of the cleanest 82 big reds anyone has seen. It had a mature adult owner who just used it to travel around his property and then I bought it about 11yrs ago and I took it on one hard ride of 90mi once with a big group but other than that it has mainly been used to tow my kids around with on a sled and sits in the garage ha

    These are the new ones. Lugs are twice as tall and have nice sharp edges vs the super worn down original ones

    3 wheelers are cool but didn't they outlaw them in the 80s for safety?

    They outlawed the sale of new ones in 87. That law is now reversed but with the popularity of four wheelers, manufacturers won't make three wheelers again.

    The safety thing was due to morons not riding properly. I've never had an issue.

    Awesome machine. Are they honestly more prone to tipping to a regular 4 wheeler? My friend said they're fine as long as you know what you're doing.

    Built in Taiwan eh, just like your Mirage.
