This popped up for sale the other day with a rather unfortunate name, it's called the Barghest Motive Garmr, unfortunate because it's so hard to remember even if you like the concept, but hard to remember name or not, I like what they've done here. Though technical details are sparse, like exactly what Harley they began with it's something I think needs to show up more often in custom builds, the leaning reverse trike. Ever since the first scooters appeared with twin wheels on the front end that allowed you to lean into the turns it became apparent the engineering worked and I expected to see builders jumping on the idea, but after quite some time it's apparent that few are taking on the challenge.
It may be that making the front suspension look good is holding everyone up, so the builders here just covered it over with bodywork. Yamaha's Niken leaves everything out for the world to see while Tilting Motor Works offers more coverage, but where are the rest of the custom builders?
More to the point, where's Harley? A long time ago they designed and built a concept called the Penster. It never went anywhere and the concept is now parked in the Harley museum, but as a lot of Harley's demographic is of the age where trikes are a real consideration, building a leaning version would seem a natural option for the Motor Company, but there doesn't seem to be any movement in that direction. While I applaud their moves toward younger riders, something we've called for over the years, they will probably miss the chance to give the segment of their demographic aging out of two wheelers the chance to continue riding on three wheels that lean.
In the meantime, we see concepts like the Garmr and no matter what you think of the actual design, I kinda like it, it shows the idea of leaning reverse trikes works and works well. The builders say they're only building one and their next build will be a one off as well. So if you think this one would look good with you on it, you can check it out right now over on eBay.
