BMW F76/79 “Cargo Donkey”

I know a 3 wheel BMW that isn’t a bubble car!!!!! Built between 1932 and 34, it was sold as a delivery vehicle. The F76 was fitted with a 192cc single cylinder 6bhp bike engine, this meant it fell under the 200cc limit meaning it was license free for use on the road. The F79 though had a 398cc engine with 12bhp but was a licensed vehicle. In total 600 trikes were built, 250 F76’s and 350 F79’s. 
Now these were very basic, for the entry level all you got was a speedo and a horn, everything else, windshield, windshield wipers, driver's cab, doors, spare wheel, spare wheel holder and Jack were all extras. As were alternative load area configurations.
