Randy Grubb defines himself as "an automotive artist", he loves to create and transform vehicles into unique pieces, just like the tri- pods.


The tri-pods are part of the series "decopods" in which Randy redesigned two-wheeler (bi-pods based on Piaggio Fly 125) and three-wheeler with an all-aluminum body, the tri-pods are available with two different designs, one or two doors.

Built from a 250cc Piaggio Mp3, weight increases by only 30 pounds (13.6kg) compared to the original model. On the engine side, except a specific muffler, performances are standard while at the comfort level, the seat height and the handlebars have been lowered.

Compared to MP3, the new fairing gives it a more aerodynamic profile and more protection while allowing to go on the highway with a maximum speed of 70mph (113kph).

Randy Grubb works like in the old-time without computer to offer this riveted body reminiscent of the finest automobiles or aircraft, its dashboard also recalls undoubtedly those of a plane.

As you probably want one from now, know that only six units were built (3 of each) and Randy is foremost an artist and do not want to mass-produce them... For the info a unit was auctioned at Barrett -Jackson last year for $ 25,000...
