Welcome to JZRUSA

I have bought this build and will be completing it. I will leave this web site as is and have started a new web site to show what I am doing. You can follow the progress there. Fred V

This site is about one man's experience in building a 3 wheeler or cycle car kit.  Please note that I am located in the United States and that some of the information contained in this website may not be applicable to other situations.
