Title: Please I need help
Post by: mtrike on September 15, 2008, 10:00:29 pm
There is a very nice looking Ken Roberts on e-bay.  But this would mean four trikes in the fleet.  But it does look nice.  Please someone buy it now.  http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&Item=220279204818&Category=33503&_trksid=p3907.m29  Does anyone know of a good trikotherapist?

Don't do it

Don't do it

Block all access to eBay from your computer

 ;D

There was a Longstaff going on eBay a few days ago with a ridiculous BIN price.  I was very tempted.  Then I thought it might be "hot".  I was spared the financial and spousal embarassment (although it was for SWMBO).

(I don't think this KR is suspect, BTW)

I'm very tempted... but it may be a bit too small for me.

Good grief! It went for only £165! I'd have put in a bit if I'd known it was there.

Ditto

I might have had that, tho' Norch is a long way to go for me...

Maybe it  would be worth flagging these in the "in the classifieds tip" thread, or else using a more descriptive thread title like "Trike on ebay"

;)

I gotta conversion kit already

I suspect the problem may be getting spares for the drive parts.

Restraint doesn't pay!  However Mr Volio I have a permanent trike search in e-bay and will happily post any new trikes appearing unless it is a two wheel drive longstaff with a 21" frame in which case I shall need it.  There is a tandem longstaff trike on at the moment as well as the conversion and a cyclon.From the photo's it's the back end of a tandem trike which forms the frame of the yeti mountain trike -
