I've never understood why Morgan bought the design for his first three-wheeler and then set about changing almost everything about it - not always for the better.

This new one looks beautifully crafted.

Pete Larsen seems to be a rare commodity. He's clearly a life long "hands on" enthusiast with an understanding of motoring history, who also happens to be a first class engineer.

He deserves to succeed and I hope he does.

Two potential reasons:

1) Not invented here syndrome
2) Taking out a potential major competitor

Is it just me that sees the irony in the quote atop of the page entitled "Driving"..?

Larsen = beautiful engineering + shonky design
M3W = beautiful design + shonky engineering

The new ACE has followed this principle, fingers crossed the new CX M3W will break the mould (probably wishful thinking).

I imagine the markets for each will now be diverging - the new Ace is more in the Vanderhall/Polaris area, whereas the 'Heritage' market may be more suited to the new MOG (again supposition without seeing the finished article).

Beauty is in the eye etc. I like the way the new Ace looks and it's appearance is more "Classic" than the Polaris. Larsen is clear on where his design cues have come from.

While this might be true for the new ACE in some eyes, it is not true for the older Harley ACE which is as beautifully designed as the 5 speed in my view.
