Vision R32

I just posted some photos of a Vision R32 in the "What's it Worth?" forum. Any help from the recumbent community here will be appreciated.

Thanks, Fred

It looks all stock except for the steering, which was probably modified to give more pull-back. It looks nicely done. The seat pad is easily replaced with a chunk of upholstery foam (cut to fit,) and a Love Seat cover to top it off would really look sharp. The R-32 roughly competes with the Bike-E AT, which went for around the same price. Normally Bike-Es go for $300-400; but since that is in such nice condition and is more uncommon than a Bike-E, I'd try replacing the pad and cover to make it look really nice, and then asking $500-600 and see what happens. Obviously the higher the asking price, the longer it may take to find its 'forever home.'
