It was designed in 1967 as a graduate project of John Plessinger at the Cranbrook Academy of Arts near Detroit. The Tricart was straddle ridden with a sit in rather than sit on style similar to the contemporaneous Big Wheel toy. In 1968 Plessinger sold the Tricart patents and design rights to Sperry Rand New Holland who manufactured them commercially. Numerous small American manufacturers of 3 wheelers followed. These small manufacturers were unable to compete when larger motorcycle companies like Honda Entered the market in 1969Sport models were also developed by Honda, which had a virtual monopoly in the market due to effective patents on design and engine placement. The 1981 ATC250R was the first high performance three wheeler, featuring full suspension, a 248 cc air cooled two stroke engine, a five speed transmission with manual clutch, and a front disc brake.
