Hi everyone, I just happened to stumble unto your great site while searching for info one a Cushman Truckster. I was forced into early retirement (am only 44, was diagnosed with MS in 01 and was able to keep working up to 4 months ago when I had a severe attack that forced me to face reality) I now have the time but not the money to build the toys I had always planned on completing. For years I would find unfinished projects and haul them home with the idea that someday I would have the time and money to build them, but then they would be impossible to find. So by storing them in the barn I was ahead of the game. I have a 68 Karman Gia convertible, and Beetle. Always wanted to build real monster engines for them with basically stock bodies. Also have a Manx dune buggy that is in boxes, along with most of what I need to build a old school T Bucket. I was going to build this as a 50's style correct build using a flat head ford v8 building it like my grandfather would had built his in 46. I have nothing against modern build rods, but there is just something about old school build that I always enjoyed. Doing something like my grandfather and uncles did using only what they would have found after my uncles came home from serving in Europe. Anyway Now I need to find a 3 wheel truckster that is a 2 seater. I found one that was posted in Texas a bout 6 weeks ago that was a 2002, but after joining the site that it was posted on and not getting a reply back I guess that it has been sold. I am looking to use one of these to haul in a trailer that I am going to tow behind the RV. (something like a 24-30 ft enclosed unit) that I can use to haul antique furniture up and down the coast. Used to drive OTR Tractor Trailer 20 years ago, and since the wife also has MS and we both have a good eye for antiques this is a good way to supplement our income. The biggest problem is that we need a way to deliver the items when we get to our final destination. Using a Truckster is the solution. I was going to use a single seat unit from the police dept like the meter maids use, but ran across this 2 seat version and this is just what I need. I actually found this site where one of your members had posted about having put a Gold Wing engine in one, and someone else was putting a ford engine in a mailster. Do not need a drag unit, but the reliability of the Gold Wing wold be a huge advantage. Anyone who happens to know where I could find a 3 wheel 2 seat truckster (street legal with cab and doors) I would be so grateful if you could get in touch with me. I will be stopping back and leaking on your site, and one of these days when finances allow I hope to start putting some of the projects I have hidden in the barn together. Again you guys have put together a great site and I have to be careful of I will spend way too much time here instead of doing what I need to be doing. Every page gives me more and more ideas! Thanks again in advance for any help you can give me in my search for a truckster like this one.
Like I said, this would be the perfect unit for me with a truck bed built on the back. Steve 570-279-1648
