Unusual Vehicle

I had to press my three-wheeler into service last week (pictured), after my car / automobile broke down. Here are some unusual facts about it, and reasons why I love it.
• It has four reverse gears
• It carries half a ton
• It has an (emergency) rope start
• It may run without any electrics
• It starts with compression (by dropping a lever)
• One accelerates in order to down-shift gears
• That front wheel is a great bumper
• Three "legs" may mean a very jerky ride, and
• There can't be many people who can steal it
OBSERVATION: As if it were a Ferrari, the manufacturers advertise it with the line: "Prosperity now comes on 3 wheels." And it has a single cylinder.
