Third Wheel: The Eccentric Alternative by Simon Potter
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Almost everyone has a fascination with sidecars and trikes. Eccentric, even distinctly odd perhaps, but who hasn't experienced the urge to take a closer look, possibly even to ride one - if only once! This book is a guide for those willing to take that plunge into the unknown and fit a sidecar or convert a bike to a trike. It takes the reader through the types of bike that are suitable, (old British singles to modern Japanese and US superbikes), the kinds of sidecar and trikes available and their advantages and disadvantages, how to fit them and set them up and how to ride and enjoy them for what they are - neither motorcycle nor car but something uniquely different, strangely practical and immense fun!There is also a very detailed guide to trike and sidecar suppliers, accessories and a myriad of websites for further help, advice and information. This is a perfect book for all sidecar and trike enthusiasts and all those just interested in these wonderfully eccentric vehicles. It is complete with a great many photos from the earliest sidecars to today's remarkable and luxurious three wheel machines.
