Description

HTML is disabled for this item description.Seller assumes all responsibility for this listing.
This steam-powered trike was recently scratch-built by master modeler, Rick Weber, and has traveled less than 10 miles under steam. It has a scratch-built 2-cylinder, double-acting steam engine with a bore of 2 inches and stroke of 1.5 inches. Propane-fired, mahogany-lagged boiler, 8 inches dia. with 48 half-inch dia. copper fire tubes. Nice smoke stack with brass finial. Water level glass gauge, pressure gauge, 3 test cocks, nice whistle, two safety valves at 100 psi, mechanical oiler and two displacement oilers for cylinder lubrication, linked cylinder draincocks, axle-driven water pump, hand-operated water pump, geared reversing gear, propane burner. Trike was recently modified to accommodate taller drivers (comfy up to 5'-10". Nice heavy-duty spoked wheels. Mechanical disc brake.

Price includes an almost-new aluminum 2-wheel trailer with less than 300 miles on it. Spare tire and jack included.

Please understand the following: This was built as a fun steamer for relatively level roads. I putt around our neighborhood in it -- maybe 15 mph. It is not an off-road fire-breathing, hill-climbing monster. Nor is it a new automobile with a 50,000 mile guarantee. Even the best steam mechanisms like this require tinkering from time to time. If you are not mechanically inclined or capable of tinkering and adjustments, maybe this trike is not for you. If you decide to purchase it, it MUST be picked up at my shop. I will not ship it anywhere. When you come to pick it up, we will fire it up and run it, so that you will knowledgeable of all its functions and features. Reason for selling; gettin' old.
