1998 Windcheetah Speedy. Famous Burroughs-designed recumbent trike. One of the fastest around; still holds the LEJOG record (though that was with a fairing). Campag triple on front, eight cogs on the back. Shimano Deore X front and back. Size from 5' 7" to 6ft. Luggage rack on back has a top bag. Would budget new groupset gears as the gear changes had begun to be problematic. There is some minor damage to the underside. There are some minor scratches, possibly from a "sleeping policeman". It also appears the chain has come off at one point and put a small groove in the paint of the casting. Overall, needs some work but key elements such as the pulleys are still in excellent condition. Tyres still hold pressure but tyres and tubes are ten years old. Padded seat and headrest need new Velcro tapes. Bought originally because of a troublesome back but getting in and out now a problem for a 65 year old. Amazing fun to ride. Manufacturer now out of commission so they're not making anymore.
