Super solid tandem trike, sells new for $8400. The footprint is about 10’ by 3’.

The good:
- it can be ridden as-is
- seats are adjustable for different heights
- hydraulic disc brakes on both front wheels
- carry compartment for snacks and/or drinks
- very comfy
- high-vis flags
- intimidating warning sticker
- overall vibe: 10/10

The bad:
- chains are rusty
- needs some sort of chain guide in the front. Rides fine when pedaling forward, but the front chain falls off if reversed or back pedaled.

The Full Scoop:
This trike was a past mechanical engineering senior project at Poly and sat around for a bit before I fixed it up last summer. Most of the current parts are as I found it, but the pedals, brakes, and chain tensioning system were hodge-podged together by me. Since it is technically property of the Cal Poly machine shops, I will buy something nice for the shops with whatever I’m able to sell it for. Like charity!
