Seen on ebay

This was on ebay but failed to sell. It was relisted in a different guise but didn't sell.

This is an auction for a very unique three wheeler, and it is a fantastic business opportunity!
The vehicle is in England.
This vehicle is a special one off Triking-Morgan conceived by a German Morgan dealer and Tony Divey the originator of Triking in England in 2005. I purchased this project with a view to keeping it for myself, but due to commitments in my main business where I make my own three wheelers, this is now for sale.
The centre section is pure Triking and has been used in many Trikings that have used the Ford Type 9 gearbox (five speed) mated to a Moto Guzzi engine. The front suspension is sliding pillar type as previously used in all early style Morgan three wheelers. In fact the cross frame top and bottom lugs have been verified as genuine 3 speed Morgan lugs.
Special one off front and rear GRP/fibreglass body sections have been made in the distinctive style of an old Morgan and differ entirely from standard Triking bodywork. The red coloured body sections shown in the photos are grp bucks from which brand new moulds have been made, out of which mouldings can be taken.
This is an ideal vehicle to make a one off entirely unique very special Triking-Morgan. Only one will exist, and the whole lot comes with a signed letter from Tony Divey explaining the concept. This indeed is the vehicle's unique Certificate of Authenticity.
Equally, this is a fantastic business opportunity to reproduce this unique vehicle, or just to reproduce the GRP/fibreglass sections for other projects.
The whole concept is as follows:
Chassis and body sections as shown (now painted gloss green and white in order to take moulds from)
New moulds taken from the above mentioned GRP/fibreglass bucks. These new moulds have been made.
Moto Guzzi engine, Ford Type 9 gearbox, special Triking rear fork (swing arm), pair of Triking front wheels, old style swing arm (currently fitted) with final drive and rear wheel.
Triking dashboard, some instruments and electrical items, internal blank side panels, carpets, special Triking bell housing and clutch. Windscreen fitments.
The whole vehicle can be entirely customised to make a modern style vehicle or a more vintage looking vehicle.
Note: You will need to add aluminium side panels and these could be louvred in a traditional Morgan style. Take a look at my business website where you can see the type of panelling I do to my other vehicles.
It would be possible to mate a brand new J.A.P. air cooled engine (now being made in the UK) to the Ford gearbox. This would make a superb example of what Morgan really ought to have done with their current new three wheeler.
To give you an idea of shipping costs, it would require a crate to be shipped within a 20ft container, and a crate would cost approx £400GBP/600USD and shipping to port side most US/worldwide destinations would be approx £400GBP/600USD.
I will not accept a bid from nor ship to:
UK or any EU country.....well I might relent....who knows?!

Triking-Morgan notes:
I've been following Triking for years, in fact it was after a ride in a friend's Triking in 1992 that I became hooked again on 3 wheelers. I went the JZR route and have owned 7 of them, then I bought the old BRA business, dropping the moniker BRA and now calling it Aero Cycle Cars.
3 years ago I bought the Triking-Morgan project. I coined the term Triking-Morgan. I saw a picture on the old Triking forum that showed a different machine in the background and there was a rumour circulating that Triking were about to build 100 such machines for Morgan's centenary! I saw it offered on the forum and I contacted Alan Layzell and finally bought it all. I was going to build myself a one off special or simply build it up for sale. I wanted it to be unique, in fact of course, it is, the letter from Tony Divey confirms this, and this letter is in essence a Certificate of Authenticity.
My idea was to fit a new build J.A.P. engine to it, and to my mind, this would make it very exciting indeed. These engines are made by the Card brothers, their late father previously owned the rights to both the J.A.P. engines and the Brough Superior.
The first thing I did was to take it to a Morgan specialist called Chris Booth who owns 13 Morgans and displays them in his museum in Kent, not far from me. Chris confirmed as I thought, that the top and bottom sliding pillar lugs (are you familiar with Morgan lugs?) are indeed genuine Morgan three wheeler 3 speed ones. The sliding pillar shaft is simply a 3/4 inch rod threaded each end. Morgan three wheeler shafts are 3/4 inch diameter of course. This got me thinking further. Why not buy in or have machined up, genuine Morgan style sliding pillar hubs. The idea of combining the merits of both Triking and Morgan seemed to me to be the way to go to making the machine even more unique.
I run my own three wheeler business, as you probably know anyway, (apart my stating so above) and I've been pretty busy in the past 3 years, and projects like this consume time.
Last year I commissioned new moulds for the front and rear covers. Let me explain why.
Tony Divey had started building up the current body shape by effectively sandwiching in original Triking front and rear covers into different shapes, hence the more Morgan looking front and the beetleback rear cover. In order to do this he made rough bucks using these Triking pieces, plus plywood, old newspaper and loads of filler to attain the shape. The front end needed some cosmetic work anyway to finalise the shape since Tony hadn't quite finished it, and I had a sculptor fill it in places, get it smooth in order to have a gloss finish applied. From this very good moulds have been made, and from the moulds, very good mouldings can be taken. I had the moulds made especially thick and strong so that a number of mouldings can be taken.
The price doesn't include a set of mouldings, but I could have a pair done at cost.
The chassis is pure Triking from the front bulkhead back to the rear bulkhead. At the back, chassis rails have been heated and bent round to form the shape. At the front the main angled chassis rails (as per current Trikings) are angled inward symetrically, then crossed by the sliding pillar cross frame angled round bars. Again as you probably know, on a standard Triking both Tony and now Alan angled in just one of these main angled front chassis rails, the other being straight.
I then commisioned Alan to make me a separate front end subframe for wishbone suspension. The idea behind this was to offer it separately to anyone who might want wishbone front suspension as opposed to sliding pillar.
This front end and wishbones is entirely separate and is not included. It is all available though if you so wish at extra cost.
