In a few episodes of Series I ("Future Echoes", "Balance of Power" and "Waiting for God") and "Kryten" in Series II, Lister rides this electric tricycle through the corridors of the ship. In the commentary the cast says that it was a modified Sinclair C5, I was doubtful of this but sure enough, it has the same frame:

In this clip (presented by none another than Chris Barrie (Rimmer) himself!) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VNyerK5IFP0 halfway through you can see the frame which is exactly the same as Lister's trike has. This is a C5 with the body removed and the handle grips moved from below the seat to the top of these chopper-like handlebars.
