1937 Chenille Mercier Trike

chenillemercier1937I didn’t know it exists. One appeared on eBay, and I learn, like you, that there are only 3 available, that they were used by the French army (for doing what?), sport a Jap 350 cm3 sport engine and a 3-speed gearbox from Soyer. For the price of $22,100.00 you can impress all the worldwide moto press when you ride it on a Daytona beach during Bike Week. Will also do well  in the “Unusual Class” of the Rat’s Hole Show.

    Strangest looking thing I’ve seen since Nacho-Libre’s basket-cycle!

    Is there a class at Bonneville for this hotrod? Is that exhaust I smell?

    If we see front wheel drive and handle bar mounted engine customs in the future I hold Cyril and the French Army responsible! Just kidding.
