Almost a cross between a sports car and a motorcycle, the Boon Trike offers an exhilarating, wind-in-one’s-hair experience, but with the stability of an extra road wheel and in the case of the ‘Family’ model, three seats. It’s certainly a head-turner and the model range has become increasingly popular since the Trikes first hit the road in 1990.

This factory built F3 Family is finished in striking Metalflake Blue with contrasting grey seating and is equipped with a top box for stowing away essentials. The machine has all the bells and whistles, including a stainless steel exhaust system, a Clifford alarm and plenty of chrome embellishments: wheels, lamps, handlebars, safety bars and so on. It has more than adequate power from its dependable 1600cc Volkswagen engine that drives through a four speed (plus reverse) gearbox.

The Boom has been in the current enthusiast ownership for twelve years. The vendor informs us that there are no known faults, apart from a non-working speedometer unit, and we understand that the braking system has recently been overhauled. 

A large history file accompanies the Trike, which includes an operating and maintenance manual, copies of sales literature and a large quantity of MOT test certificates. The registration number K800 MVW (spelling ‘K BOOM VW’)is also included in the sale.
