Saturday's 11/15/08 Seattle Times (local news section, page one) featured a short piece about Pete Larson and the ACE Cycle-Car that he designed and builds from his industrial building on Rainier Avenue South in Seattle, Washington.  So is it a motorcycle or a car?  Well, it's a little of both.  The tri-wheeler has two smaller wheels up front and one really big one in the rear.  This is a high performance vehicle which is technically classified as a motorcycle.  So, does this mean that you have to have a motorcycle endorsement on you driver's license?  I'm not sure but you can can check out his web site at www.cycle-car.com and find out.

The ACE is powered by a V-Twin Harley Davidson motor with a five speed automotive transmission with a reverse gear, and can go up to 120 mph.  Oh yeah, and the ACE also has a steering wheel which detaches so you can get into the thing.  These beauties are "a piece of kinetic sculpture" according to Larson.  It's design was influenced by the British-made Morgan models from the 1930s.  One thing for sure is that the rumble of the Harley Davidson engine and the cool design will turn heads when you cruise on by!

The link to this blog for further details is to an earlier Seattle Times article from June 27, 2007 titled "Seattle designer puts 1930s flair on the road. 
ACE Cycle Car brings back romance of driving".  You'll note that over a year ago the price of the ACE was about $40,000 but now they go for about $50,000.  Each one takes about six to eight months to build but may be well worth the wait if you want to stand out from the crowd.

If you do decide to buy an ACE, make sure you get the right kind of insurance for it whether car or motorcycle insurance.  The last thing you want to do is get in a car accident or motorcycle crash in Seattle, Washington or along I-90 in Spokane, Washington maybe on your next trip to Sturgis, South Dakota for the wild and crazy Sturgis biker's rally and find out that you have the wrong type of coverage.


If you do get in an accident and have any questions about insurance coverage or injury claims, you can definitely call us at the Andrew Kim Law Firm, PLLC at (425) 289-1990 or 1-800-636-3676.
