    Tilting Trikes as far back as 1945? Who Knew?

    Found this by accident... Unfortunately it ends at 2006.
    Regardless, it makes for an interesting read.
    Lotsa cool photos too!
    Some links at the bottom too...

    Tilting Motor Works is currently proving the concept of a free-leaning 2F 1R trike.

    BTW, just about anything you think has yet to be invented has already been invented.

    I guess I was surprised as to how far back leaners went.
    TMW is here in WA. Has he moved forward w/ his design?

    I remember VW was playing w/ a trike years back...
    Haven't seen much of it since.

    Looks like Harley has some interest in leaning trikes http://thekneeslider.com/archives/20...t-application/ The patent app was dated 2007-maybe the economic downturn put it on the shelf.
