SELF INTRODUCTION: I was on the last board as bonustoolkit. I have changed that to my given name.
I started a project build there " File and Fit." I paln to continue that when I go back home in Dec. 2011. I first joined the board when Gary W had it in the year 2005. That was the time I really gained an interest in building chops. I have a long way to go, compared to some here.

I remember this AEE trike in a magazine in the early 1970s!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This is your life, is it everything you dreamed that it would be
When the world was younger and you had everything to lose?"

I do not have any more shots. Like Kiwicaveman, I remember the frike from a magazine article in the '70's. I came accross it again and posted it here. It would be great to see it restored and usable. The author of the article may have more shots.
