In this volume, Mark`s bike challenge is to rebuild a two seater, three-wheeled trike, using the rear axle from a VW Beetle. Power is supplied courtesy of a 1800 VW engine with Weber carbs. It is capable of a cruising speed of 77mph, and does between 24 and 32 miles per gallon. It is dressed in stainless steel and the red fibreglass body has been treated to a trendy airbrush job.
