The original M3W owners make the small group of curmudgeonly Trad owners seem like rays of sunshine who embrace change with enthusiasm laugh

Dan, the Morgan Three Wheeler Club (MTWC) magazine comes with membership in the club. All members receive the magazine. It is just now starting to include 5 speeder information. The limited amount now is simply a reflection of what the members submit and I suspect that there are only just a few 5 speeder members. Remember that this club has been around for decades longer than the M3W has been available. So it will take them time to get fully engaged, but I have already seen a increase in articles.

That's about it. I've been contacted in the past by the Bulletin (MTWC mag) editor to drum up five speeder articles.

I suspect all the five speeders are still under guarantee so there probably won't be any articles detailing a mechanical modification etc. Whereas for a two or three speeder, it's a long time since most dealers have even seen one - let alone worked on it.

I'd like to see a picture of a human sitting in the car in the advert. If they can't see to drive above the screens - then they are windscreens and unless I'm missing something, will need washers and wiper to pass a MOT.

Can someone scan or take a picture of the hood and windscreen in the MTWC and post it?

In fairness to the MTWC, they exist to continue the vintage three wheelers and I had an inkling there would be little for us modern chappies when I coughed the cash, but in the six months I've been involved it's like a bear pit!

They have some really bitter personalities, and seem to wash the dirty linen in public, and there is little positivity about the whole thing it would appear.

I don't think they are alone in this situation, an awful lot of hobby clubs are experiencing similar issues. It's a sign of an ageing membership who seem to resent handing over knowledge to people who they believe aren't on the same wavelength. These people are usually younger, more active and more willing to move forward and people are scared of change.

Clubs rely on subscriptions from members, as they still produce printed material. The enlightened ones simply set up on-line web based interactions or forums for a fraction of the price, but some see the interweb as the devils spawn and refuse to move forward.

Enthusiast clubs are less about the subject, but all to do with people. That's what's so nice about Talk Morgan.

Well I treat TM as the unofficial 5 speeders club mag and I don't have to wait each month for it to drop through the letter box.
Long may it continue.

TM seems to tick all the boxes for what I need.

MTWC must have a benefit for the lovely old two and three speed cars. They have a lovely badge.
