This is a Maruishi Premier “Sunday Lovely” tilting or leaning tricycle made by the Maruishi Bicycle Company Japan.

There doesn’t appear to be a lot of reliable information available about this particular trike or it’s manufacturer either, but what I do know is that Maruishi were or are a Japanese bicycle company founded in the early 1900’s. According to some articles they are no longer in existence however other sources say that they are.
Unfortunately I am unable to confirm this but this particular trike is likely to be from either the 1970’s or 80’s from the limited information I have been able to find.

I purchased this trike from Hamilton in a pretty bad/ unusable state and have completely restored it to what you see pictured. Pretty much every part has been either powder coated, re-chromed or zinc plated, the wheels were also professionally re-spoked with new white wall tyres fitted. The only items left untouched were the grips, pedals and the chain guard to preserve the “Sunday Lovely”. There are a few items which I sourced to add to its charm like the dynamo (front and rear lights both work) and the rear swappa crate styled box with a vintage “ding dong” bell.

“Sunday Lovely” has a rather cool party trick! With the easy removal of a locking pin under the create the front section of the trike pivots to allow the rider to lean into corners or to just help with manoeuvring. It also has a handy park brake which is part of the rear brake mechanism so it doesn’t roll away when you park it.

This trike would make an awesome summer cruiser or a feature in your house or shop or wherever really. It has been ridden on the street maybe twice since it’s restoration which is why I think it’s time for someone else to enjoy or hopefully use it.
