acceptable price for 15y/o greenspeed trike.

Postby gudism » Fri Jan 31, 2014 9:21 am

Hi all

I'm wanting to buy a recumbent trike and have come across a Greenspeed trike that is 15 years old.

It is in supposed great condition and we'll looked after however I do not know what is an acceptable price for such a machine at that age. I cannot see it in person due to distance however from the picture I've seen it does look good. I have asked for more pictures.

What would people think is a acceptable price?

The owner is asking $950 (with an included roof rack).

Thank you
Craig

I don't have all the details but apparently it is identical to this trike. Appears to be a GTR.

There's a similar vintage greenspeed trike on OzHPV for $1400 (scroll all the way down)

Perhaps it is a bargain ar $950 minus the cost of the included roof rack (which I dont want)

this is the 2 pics I received. It appears to only have steering from the left, I'm guessing it was modified to suit the elderly rider. Could this be modified back to have 2? edit: it does have 2 handlebars......perspective issues in first pic but the second I can now see it.

The seller also mentioned it has Shimano Nexus Auto D gearing, I dont know enough about these, is it a bad thing?
