Vehicle Description

Purist's-dream: ~Awesome rare exhilarating 1983 TriHawk -304 sportscycle -2.pass.(side-by-side) roadster is Calif./DMV-licensed as a motorcycle, and has a rigid steel-frame w/Rollbar and wide-stance stability (-so no helmet required by Cal.-DMV), --nor is any smoging ever required; --but with only 96-made, production was unfortunately halted after acquisition by Harley-Davidson Corp. in 1985 (-as they encountered the Recession which put a damper on plans.). Renown for its amazing competition roadability (-the FWD/weight-bias virtually 'pulls' it through hair-pin turns, -unlike the inferior designs which 'push' via single/rear-wheel, -imparting a dangerous tipping-action) on par with Corvette & Porsche (-recording a 1G+ grip on R&T's-Skidpad), -and the R&P-steering feels like a Formula-1 racer!   The TriHawk employs a spirited Citroen FWD 1.3L/1300cc OHC/4cyl.-aircooled engine w/5-spd.Transaxle (-same precision unit as early Lotus Esprit), and front/disk-brakes (-no Pwr.-anything as weighs only 1,360-Lbs., 70% in-fnt.); -and is only TriHawk known to have the convenience of a 'safety-approved' Steering-wheel that instantly-detaches as shown in pictures, -for greater ease of ingress/egress (-and to 'take-with-you' to deter vehicle-theft)!  This specimen is essentially a Spyder-roadster, -( TriHawks were offered with a Rag-top(canvas) snap-on erected over the included 'plug-in' stainless/Top-bow; -and could be fully-enclosed via optional Side-curtains).  Is in Xlnt.-condition, only 13,600-miles, -has original/silver-finish, -always garaged, and Calif./DMV- registered.  Also possibly the only TriHawk made with a nifty front/'Tilt-open' Eng.-cover to 60-degree angle; --which Eng.-cover also readily detaches cleverly via tool'less Quck-release aircrart-pin means if desired (-great convenience feature for tinkering or for showing!).  Driving it is sheer-JOY, --and the deep-throaty mello-rumble of the Sidewinder-exhausts is music to one's ears!  Don't relish parting with this 'stunning specimen', -but at age-85 a gent sadly realizes he needs to part with his toys..!!
