Harley-powered three-wheeler – the idea is not new. Pete Larsen is building these three-wheeler beauties in Seattle, Washington. He has a website, the ACE Cycle Car which says recently „Constructed under license from the Morgan 3 Wheeler, Ltd. Malvern, England.” Rumour has it that British sports car maker is turning to Harley-Davidson.  Although no official announcement has yet been made, a new company “The Morgan 3 Wheeler Ltd” has been registered to the same adress as the Morgan Motor Company in England.

The idea is that Morgan’s new venture has bought the design rights to the ACE machine, and will start turning them out with the new Morgan 3 badge on the nose. The car itself has a tube chassis, an air-cooled V-twin hanging out of the front, driving through a five-speed gearbox to a shaft-driven single rear wheel. The old JAP or Matchless V-twins will be replaced with modern  Harley-Davidson engines in either 1442 or 1687cc forms.
