Recumbent eBay Thread

Postby Aushiker » Fri Jan 16, 2015 2:08 pm

In the touring section there is a touring ebay thread where details of tourings for sale on ebay etc are posted. I thought something similar might be handy here as (a) I am selling my Bacchetta Giro 20 ATT :) and (b) it is interesting to see what is around the place and what they are selling for. Please do add your contributions if interested.

Surely good value
Even if it needs a lot of work.

So cheap that it can't afford a name. Anyone know what brand/model that is?

Edit: Had a think about it, might be a Vision R40 from the '90's. The one for sale is underseat steering but they can convert to above-seat, from SWB to LWB as well.

Here's one, the MR1 made by MR Components and using a Greenspeed frame. Just a little unfortunate that the seller is advertising it as a Greenspeed and not MR trike.

That's a big battery on the back. Looks like 4 lights off old video cameras bolted around the frame.

I want another $100 off for the misspelling of recumbent...

This one's a tempting prospect. I'm currently bent-less after selling my barely used Performer.

Here's a bargain Greenspeed trike from the mid-naugthies, for only $450. With the money you save you could grow a decent beard or aerogut to complement the new purchase.

It is interesting that the guy selling this has started to try to sell bits off it (one of the Ortlieb handlebar bags and the set of Ortlieb recumbent panniers) though still at top dollar for those bits and no adjustment to the original ad. Keep watching, things may get cheaper especially as he's been trying to sell the trike since September.

That sunshade, I want it.

An interesting trike has just popped up on OzHPV for sale: A Greenspeed racing trike.
Image
I tried a Greenspeed racing trike at the HPV Challenge in Canberra in '98, back then this model didn't have the crossed steering rods that give the centerpoint ackerman steering that Greenspeed was so famous for getting right with their trikes, in fact if you steered too hard in either direction one of the front tyres would rub on your knuckles. And you'd be off the road in a blink. There was a brake lever only on the left hand, the right was steering and required concentration but once you got it worked out that trike could go, really lightweight frame, fast wheels, no bells and whistles, very very low to the ground, very unroadworthy. One speedhump and the ride ends.

That was a race trike. In 1999 Greenspeed teamed with Ian Humphries (of Flying Furniture) to make a more roadworthy and mainstream racing trike, the GLR, tested the trike in Europe and the PBP. You got hub brakes on both front wheels, centrepoint steering, a higher ground clearance, still very low and laid back but something that could survive riding over a carpark speedbump. Not really a race trike, just a fast trike.

What's for sale looks like a GLR but with a twist, Greenspeed has a history of adapting their trikes to disability needs and maybe they've widened the crossmembers to put the wheels a mile apart for stability more than manoeuvrabilty. Looks like a homemade trike that I saw at that '98 HPV Challenge, the wheels were so far apart I called it 'the combine harvester', agricultural. Definitely not a race trike. You'd really need space in the garage for this one, length and width. And forget the fun of lifting a wheel on corners.

This Metaphysic highracer has popped up on Ebay for $1800. It was until recently being advertised on the OzHPV 'for sale' page as a frameset and that's just been changed to the fully built up machine. Pity for anyone looking for a project, he was selling the frameset with extras like a spare fork.

There's a Trisled Rotovelo in blue on the OzHPV 'for sale' page, for $3500 in Melbourne. Anyone want a velomobile?

All this just so that you can use the drive-thru at Maccas.

I dont think much of it is a GLR, I ride one and the seat "maybe" off a GLR, nothing else looks right or close except it has 3 wheels :)
A GLR is a great fun everyday very fast trike, the GLR was designed for audax racing, the GLX was the sports version of it.

"SLR Race trike: We’ve started cutting out
the tubing for a brand new prototype racing
trike. This will be an evolutionary step beyond
the GLR Low Racer. The GTX sports trike has
now taken its place as a more practical and
fast tourer."

It's quite an interesting phenomenon from my perspective. All those people that don't know, would say a velo in Brisbane weather would be too hot/heavy/whatever. But they are breeding like rabbits [emoji1] [emoji195]
