Some new info on the Corvair Trike!

Just had a great conversation with Scott Russell of Motosport Hillsboro in Oregon. He bought AEE Choppers Corvair Trike in about 2000 not knowing what it was at that time. he bought it as it had some Halibrand mags on it that he was interested in. On getting the trike home he wondered why he had bought it as it was in very rough shape, all there, but rough. Not long after he accidentally ran across the article about building the trike in Cycle Guide (this was prior to Street Chopper existing). Suddenly he realized what he had. A few years went by and he needed to cut his inventory of vehicles and such so he listed it on Ebay. A flurry of activity followed and he pulled the ad to rethink things a bit. Later an offer got made to him and he accepted it and turned the trike over in Medford,OR to the son of the buyer. The trike was headed to the LA area. I made contact once with someone claiming they had the trike in SoCal but they never responded to my emails.
So it sounds to me that the trike may still be out there hiding once again. We need to beat the bushes and find this piece of history so we can get it on the road again....maybe! Scott kindly is searching for any photos or further information he may have and will share it with us all. Meanwhile stop by his website or dealership:
