There’s nothing quite like the feeling of being out on the open roads or of being able to ride a motorcycle without a care in the world. Well, what about if your health no longer allows that, maybe you don’t have a motorcycle licence, now there is another option.  Buy a three wheeled motorcycle, or trike as they are more commonly known.

Having an extra wheel on your motorbike may be rare, but is nothing new. Over the years, manufacturers and custom bike builders have been adding extra wheels to their bikes for various reasons.

The Trike we have here is quite a rare beast in the UK as it was originally built in Germany, but don’t let that fool you. Those in the know appreciate the quality of these Toth Trikes, built by TWA and being pretty much the same as Boom and Rewaco UK models, parts are easy enough to source.

There is not a great deal of history with the bike but what we do know is that our current owner acquired the Trike from his late good friend, an ex-military police special forces officer who flew helicopters in his later years. He always wanted a trike and searched high and low before purchasing this beauty only to became ill shortly after its purchase. This sadly stunted his enjoyment of the bike only allowing him to ride the trike once before passing away, an amazing guy and amazing life.

We can also see from the paperwork that the bike was first registered in Germany on 12th January 1989 and found its way to the UK in 2007 and was registered here in July of that year.  It will come with the V5, two keys the number plate authorisation documentation and a dozen or so old MOTs.

This Toth Trike

With its black basecoat drowned in colourful metalflake and then lacquered, the trike glistens extraordinarily in the sun and garnishes loads of attention wherever it goes, a beautiful thing indeed.  Our vendor has shared that the paintwork is in wonderful condition with the only minor blemish being a small nick under the instrument panel.  There are no rips, tears or discolouring in the seats.

The Volkswagen 1600cc air cooled engines that were fitted to these when built still pulls like a train and as you can see from the images is very clean and tidy with no unsightly leaks. The 15inch wheels are also in great nick with no obvious damage and there’s plenty of tread left on the 275/50/15 General Grabber Tyres. The 18in Metzeler front tyre is just as good with all three being described as almost new.

This Toth Trike has a Bluetooth CD player and speakers fitted behind the passenger that are in working order although the vendor shared that the radio is not connected to an aerial at present so you may want to fill that huge top box with some CDs of your choice.

As you can see from the images the exhausts and chrome work are all in super condition, in fact there is nothing on the bike that detracts from describing it as in fantastic condition, there is nothing that does not work as it should and it is ready to go.

Our Vendor has stated that he will have it MOT’d prior to the winning bidder arranging collection and the great number plate of F31MRC with stay with the bike.  What more could you ask for?

Our View

With so much stability and comfort we completely understand the attraction of three wheeled motorcycling, especially with such a quality build.

A great deal of the attraction with these bikes is not only the safety and comfort but also how they present, it is very common for owners of these to be in clubs and go to members meets showing off their wares. This wonderful example will fit straight in with its polished pipes and stunning paintwork, just be prepared to share your experience with it to the myriad of interested parties that will be approaching you every time you stop!

What else can be said about this other than, if you haven’t ridden a Trike then you won’t go wrong choosing this Toth Trike as your first one, and if you have owned Trikes before, then this stunningly built example will be one to use and enjoy for years to come.

Vehicle Location: Ashburton, Devon TQ13 – it’s the responsibility of the winning bidder to make collection / transportation arrangements directly with the vendor.

 Guide Prices?

We’re different. But you know that. And we’re always honest. In a sector where no two classics are same, how does anyone put a ‘guide’.

Well, everyone knows the broad value of classic, let’s all be honest. So we don’t need to tell you what you already know, do we.

The ‘market’ decides and the old cliché that ‘it’s are worth what someone wants to pay’ is no less true. So why kid everyone!

But, because we are different, if it really does matter to you, that’s fine, we want you to be happy. Just drop us a line at auction@evoke-classics.com and one of us will be delighted to ring you back and discuss, it’s what we do.

Tedious but it’s vital you read this, please.

We will always strive to offer the most descriptive and transparent auction listings available. However, we can’t claim to be perfect. Your own analysis is very important and we are here to help and also answer any and all queries you may have prior to purchase.

We offer and positively encourage bidders to view, or arrange inspections for each vehicle thoroughly prior to bidding.

If we do take a physical, as opposed to a remote, look at any of the vehicles on our platform, they are not those of a qualified vehicle inspector or other professional. Nor do they include a test drive unless expressly stated.

As with all vehicles of a certain age, localised paint repairs are common. This specifically applies with classics.

So, please, unless we state explicitly to the contrary, please assume that classic vehicles on our platform could have had remedial bodywork of any kind at some point in its life.

Two final comments on images and photos.

The vast majority are supplied by vendors. Camera technology has and continues to improve significantly, but please note and understand that image and sound quality does vary. If you would like vendors to provide more images please ask us and we will contact the vendor for you.

If you are at all unsure, just ask us. It is what we are here for.

Finally, finally, finally. Please note that vehicles are sold as seen and a returns policy is not applicable. This is the norm for used items acquired at auction.
