Lean Mean Green Machine

The difference between One-percenters and the rest of us is the price
of their Green Machine.

If you’re nostalgic about the Green Machine tricycle you had as a kid
and you’ve got $75K burning a hole in your pocket, then check this out:
The Lean Mean Green Machine!

At its heart rumbles an air-cooled, 80" cu. Harley-Davidson
v-twin Evo–hailed by some as the engine that saved the iconic company–providing
60 horsepower for speeds up to 50 mph. The front wheel is driven by
a chain housed in a protective cowling that replicates the toy’s frame
and, like its predecessor, the cycle is steered by two handheld push/pull
levers that control the two rear wheels via a directional linkage. The
hand levers include brakes while a foot lever controls its manual 6-speed
transmission. Its 8 1/2-gallon fuel tank is built into the frame, hidden
from view, providing a range of 400 miles.
