and they wont ever get an mot on it. the old dodge was to get a reliant log book because it already says 'tricycle' on it. but since computerised mot tests, that is out of the window. no mot man is going to risk losing his ticket by putting an mot on a vehicle that is quite obviously not a reliant 3 wheeler, even trikes built from reliants using the reliant chassis arent kosher because they are obviously modified. so whoever bought this is going to have to put it through an sva test, making it an expensive waste of cash.

Christ, that is fucking horrible! :shock:
Ashamed to admit that I live in the same town.......*
The listing is a bit odd, refers to "our" trike, but then gets all business-like with all the stuff about part-exchange, warranty, etc........so I get the impression that they're not telling the full story.
Reliant log book and chassis plate.....ffs, who are they trying to kid? That surely is the kind of blatant piss-taking the DVLA etc. have been trying to clamp down on.
Never mind, if the seller is the place I think it is it's not too far to push it down to the beach and into the sea.




*There was a T-shirt available a while back which bore the legend "DON'T WORRY, I'M FROM St.LEONARDS TOO,".....and on the back....."I'M NORMAL LIKE YOU!".......says it all, really.

It's horrible, as well as being an utter waste of time and money and worse even than what it was originally.

The US Embassy used to use Reliant Robins or Robin Reliants, whichever is correct.
