TU Trike

Jim:

I recently purchased a TU250 and am intrigued by the picture of the trike conversion.

Is that a kit some firm is offering or was it a one-off "just for the hell of it" build?

Interesting photos.

I am not familiar with the term "Pungo" - were these sharecropper or slave homes?

Also, congratulations on participating in the DGR event.

Abs

Wondering why Honda is not offering the ABS version of the F in the U.S.?

Do they think only a very small percentage of buyers would pay an additional $500.00 for that feature???
