Tadpole Trike, rear wheel steering, front wheel drive, 1950s.

I’m guessing this cool little tadpole trike is from the 1950s, judging by the stylin’ hairdo.  This photo from the site “Modern Mechanix, where “yesterday’s tomorrow is today.”

    How can I get plans to this design ? This has to be the most simple and effective design ever made for a 3 wheeled machine. Imagine how it would perform with a modern engine and modern materials . I want to see the plans and re-invent it , and produce variations for possible mass production.

    Advice…..
    If you have to ask for the plans,
    you are in no position to “Update” / “Reinvent” / “Go To Production” with the design.

    Easy enough to copy or clone, without the Plans.
    Think “Gokart Trike”, Backwards.
    -Cable Steering Controls.
    -Live Drive Axle.
    -Nexus Gear Hub for Drive.
    -Over-riding Clutches Driving L & R Wheels.
    -L & R Disk Brakes.

    Nice Picture, Good Luck with your Project.
