    Default AEE Choppers Corvair Trike FOUND!!!!!!!!

    Thats right it's back......I've chased it for a long time. It was where I thought it was but I could never get a picture out of the guy. Paul Ponkow with Bones legacy got pictures and waved some cash now he owns the Corvair Trike. This was on the cover of the first issue of Street Chopper, on cover first AEE catalog, in a movie and more.....it's stunning how original it is. Molly paint intact, AEE springer, looks like original gauges and more....seats need recovered and it needs the 6 vertical pipes but otherwise from 50 feet its all there! Paul and his crew are going to give it the same kind of Bones legacy treatment Big Twin got so stay tuned!!!! We have found 2 of AEE's bikes, where are the rest????
    I'll have more pictures on the AEE blog:

    That left side knee bar (and presumably missing right side?) are way NUTS!!!

    I can see where you would want something to prevent leg "slippage" (?) terminology unknown, but scary as hell as a restraint system too.

    Unless I'm just seeing something that isn't apparent? hinges or other release mechanisms???

    WILD AS FUCK!!!!

    Not a restraint system, more to keep you from touching stuff you shouldn't by putting your feet where they should not go. I rode in it and you just hang on...especially when Tom was wheeling it....it hauled the mail let me tell you.

    Great to see more chopper history come to light. Hopefully the Counting Cars exposure will help bring out more.

    Too cool. I love seeing builds from the late 60's and early 70's found and resurrected

    this bike was built by aee so i would hazard a guess that they would use a aee front end on it.

    Its an AEE square springer and has been on there since 1971. It originally had a modified HD springer, then glide tubes for a while then the AEE springer.

    That's like, one of those things you're glad someone else has..

    But you wouldn't want it parked in your own driveway.

    I had one of those square springers once. I gave it to a friend. Heavy as hell. Probable crack your neck casting if you hit a decent pothole of bump in the road . Especially if it pogo'.
