this trike as a seat which turn around 180' and allows you to change from 'delta' riding with the single steering wheel in the front , to be seated with the two wheel side facing the front.

this is accomplished by a tilt mechanism in the handlebars that allows you to swtich steering for a front wheel facing

also, you know how sometimes in the movies, during a chase seen the drivers have to back up super fast or do a u-turn, why not just reverse straight back by turning a 180 in your chair? forward, to steering the back wheel behind you (when you turn the seat 180' around.

many people will comment that tadpole trikes are ordinarily steered with 2 front wheel. they do not have to be however.

finally---------the drive mechanism/ crank is mounted on a center tube with a bolt on bottom bracket to allow for adjustment of the foot position.

for bonus points use an electric hub motor , with a circuit for reverse motor motion----- to make it easier.

why? why not?

       Make the wheels large enough, and the seatbelt straps tight enough, and you can ride it upside down as well!

       I see one possible application for this and that application is ice-cream carts.   

       [teslaberry], what is so hard about picking a category for your idea? It's just considered polite around here.
