Back to the future: 1980 Tri-Magnum


It happens that every now and then snack out of nowhere these three-wheeled vehicles, built in the USA at the turn of the 70s and 80s, an extraordinary era.


At that time, in fact, what was to become the modern world a few years later was emerging: 24-hour computers, cell phones and live broadcasts. Besides that, it was the most prolific period with regard to UFO sightings; this, together with films like ‘Close Encounters of the Third Kind’, have influenced mass culture and, why not, even the automotive world.


This is a typical example: built on a steel frame, fiberglass body and propelled by an engine taken from the Honda Gold Wing which developed 95 hp; in a nutshell out of the box, fast and cheap. If you want more information consult this link, as far as the car itself is concerned, it no longer has its “original” engine, it must all be restored but the starting point is excellent. Find it for sale here in Lodi, OH, with bidding at $3,000 and reserve not met.
