Useful links and 'Who's Who' of Russian trikes

A few useful links: feel free to add more:

ASE Trikes mailing list on Yahoo: the group archives will illuminate some of the history of the various manufacturers. Still active, and well worth joining up if you're an owner.

Website of the (currently inactive) manufacturer of three-wheel drive trikes, the latest iteration of the AS Engineering concept. There are no plans to start commerical activity in the immediate future. Run by Vladimir Pantyukhov and Alexei Solovjov, who was the original engineering brains behind AS Engineering. Formed in around 2004, but never started manufacture or actual sales to my knowledge.

Website for Berkut trikes, again currently not making trikes, but may possibly have some spares. The main people here are Anna and Vadim. Berkut are a long established Russian trike maker.

"URAN-1 and AS Engineering" site run by Yuri Karasev, former business partner in AS Engineering, later operating alone under the new name. Not currently making trikes as far as I know. Note that several customers on the Yahoo mailing list report that they have paid this company for trikes which have not been delivered, although Yuri continues (latest message Nov 2009) to claim via the Yahoo mailing list that he still intends to make good on these contracts.

My (Peter Eland) own website with some pictures of my trike as it was before I sold it some years ago.

Just did a bit of Google work and found some more:

Some nice images of a German Solovjov trike.

Older pages by Matti Airas - including some old pics of mine I'd forgotten about! Many pictures of several trikes. Also links to download some ASE brochures. The site includes:
A long (text) report I wrote soon after getting my trike...
Matti's own impressions...

A thread on CycleChat, apparently from a UK owner...

Anyone got any more?
