    I thought those were called a Tricar, Harry!

    If it was an Indian, anyway,...

    Or a Forecar if it was HD:

    I can't think of anything polite to call that modern thing.

    PS: I can't tell which way this one goes; If a lever is for reverse, it goes both ways!

    PPS: It looks like Dayton called it a tricar too:

            As I read it the first Pope motorcycle wasn't produced until after the death of founder Colonel Pope around 1910. Here is Colonel Pope's sone Albert Linder Pope.

                    Wow - cross country pulling a wagon with a single cylinder 2-cycle on 1915 roads? Can you imagine? A Schickel motorcycle. Norbert Schickel is credited as the inventor of the twist grip throttle. How close did we come to having Wide Open Schickel?

                        • Thanks for the great Schickel pictures, Tom, and Mike; particularly the Schickel factory photo. The sales pics that Tom posted really show how attractive the design was.

                              • Thanks to all who have been posting these very enjoyable pics.
                                Perhaps,since I have to scroll down to the bottom of the first page to get to the bar to open last page,viewing every photo on first page everyday, maybe someone could pull the Gilligan and Oswald memes ,unless Im missing some motorcycle reference.
