e-recumbent doesn't ride

I t's great seeing this forumn and all the people turned on to biking...I am too but right now I guess I need to re-group.
Last august I bought the raptor from boomerbents on line. Now I would say only buy local. I spent a lot on what I thought was a high end electric trike.
Its not safe-the front fork bent-and was bent back into shape by a friends bare hands. To replace it I need to go to the manufacturer who I learn is in Taiwan. It's next to impossible to replace any of this stuff-the size & shape is different than anything standard.
The last time I rode it a cop in his car said your Left rear tire is wobbleing. When I got home the wheel had no bolt must've fallen out-and the wheel literally fell off. I think God mustn't want me to die yet.I'm filing a complaint with the BBB and am open to any complaint suggestions. I live in corvallis ,OR, I luv fall, we have many bike lanes & I'm not there. I'll check back tomorrow.
