1987 Ed Roth “Globe Hopper”

Ed had been riding trikes for fifteen years when he decided to make the Globe Hopper (named by Robert Williams).

Globe Hopper had a big gas tank, trouble-free 1800cc VW engine, and an automatic transmission that he pulled out of a Porsche 914 coupe.

Ed ended up replacing the fuel injection system with two SU carburetors.

Ed drove to Alaska in the Globe Hopper, which is fashioned a little like a ’34 Ford Roadster.
