I got myself a trike !!!!I recently was presented an older model threewheeler, a Dutch handmade INCA SENIOR, made for the elderly and disabled. It comes with Magura hydraulic (!) rimbrakes at the rear and the earlier mentioned SACHS 301 twostroke, 30cc motor with electric starter.
I drove a four mile testride with the trike and it seems it's in need of 'some' tuning: the spark is very weak, and the battery was flat. After charging the 12 V 1.2 Ah NiCad battery the starter motor is turning over like hell, but the motor still refuses to start. Only a fiercy wank at the pullstarter seems to be able to bring the engine to life. Once running, the push-in-the-back is hardly feeled: a healthy SACHS 301 delivers a mere 0.7 HP, or some 500 Watts. Given the fact that this engine is in need of some TLC, my guess is that there is less than 250 Watts available. Anyway: I will try to get it running properly and perhaps the idea to build a recumbend tadpole will be adapted into a delta...
I have contacted the Spartamet club in Holland for some advise on the motor, since it is the same block used in their favourite bike.
Here the first (somewhat obscure) pictures of the monster ;-)
