Homemade Trike

This was parked outside my house in the shade the other weekend, very impressive. Hand built in 1991, the back half is a VW beetle.
After complimenting the guy on the excellent style, I asked why he chose to ride a trike rather than a bike? He tapped one of his legs, “knock knock knock” sounding rather wooden – lost a leg years ago in a bike accident.
“Lost a leg so gained a wheel” was his motto.
