Want to get Trike for commuting around town

It's about 10 miles to work and I would carry stuff on it
and I would use it around town.

I would like something I could transport on my little honda once in a while
Is there a bike rack or something I could get for it?

I can spend 1000.00 max

Would really appreciate any suggestions

Thanks

As to a trike: Well, that's an individual thing. If you want fast and fun, then look at a Tadpole design. Greenspeed has a model not too far out of your price range and Whizwheels has in your range, I believe.

Then there is the delta like my wife's Sun

www.wizwheelz.com also makes a trike carrier, it's the one that I use to transport my TW-Bents (ActionBent) trike. As for the trike itself, try picking up a used one on eBay, craigslist or the BROL classifieds forum (www.bentrideronline.com).
