The Corvair Trike and Ed Roth

Tom on the Corvair trike with Ed Roth in the background with his trike. Tom's Kuncklehead "The Mindbender" was bought from Ed. This picture is from a staged article for Street Chopper very early on (1969). The build of the Corvair was featured in Cycle Guide over a handful of issues, same for the Mindbender as tom at that time was a contributor to the magazine. Corvair trike was a beast, fired right up and you could wheelie it at will pretty much. Unlike most trikes of that era that used Corvair or VW power the engine is out front.
