    Anyone know anything about Q Pods? I know a few basics, 340 cc, twist-n-go. Need to know a bit more before I commit, like price, availability, basic model, spares situation, etc etc.

    Saw one recently in the Corfe Castle C&CC Site :thumb:

    Used to have one of the original ones that were imported,made by Secma,great fun but overpriced,when it tipped me out onto the footpath in France and broke the windscreen,it would have been cheaper to buy a new windscreen for the RV.
    A tight fit for two people,but as I said great fun but overpriced.

    Were they not Noel Edmunds' brainchild?

    Anyway - if you are looking at these, you may also wish to look at quads/buggies...especially the buggies as they are more conventional and parts more mainstream!

    There are lots about, this just gives an example - new price start around 2k

    We had one, 54 reg great fun, don't recommend towing on hitch provided for long distance, it knocks out rear wheel bearings prematurely although later models have twin rear bearings. We prefer proper car as toad
