if you don't mind me asking, why are you offering so much?

Hi Mike,
Mark here and I saw your post. I have several recumbents in my stables, including a tandem trike. I also have a Ferrari trike and a Dutch quasi lowracer. I also ahve a few others, but those are the most interesting. The trikes can haul a Burley trailer and they all have their own saddle bags and/or baby seats. A baby seat on the lowracer is quite a site.
I'm a househusband down in Monterey, so I have the time to drive up and help you out. Plus the wife always appreciates extra $$$! I also used to own a recumbent shop down here so I'm pretty well versed in recumbents, as well as 30 years in the bicycle industry.
Interested? Call me anytime at 831-521-3801. I'll size some pics after I post this!
Thanks for your consideration,
Mark Bunten aka Dr. Deltron

Haven't seen Scarry around here much. He's in the Fremont area, and rides his Bachetta pretty much EVERYWHERE.
