The seats on the trikes sure look like garbage. Looks like those seats that break all the time.

Trailer bikes

They have a trailer bike on there that is attached to a rack like the Burley Piccolo, wish I could get hold of one of those.

These are exactly the same bikes as what ActionBent, RecumbentUSA, and my own company sells. The only difference is the paint job and component group. Also, since this company is based in Taiwan, it'll be more trouble than it's worth to try and import one. You may as well get one from a company based in North America that has done the importing for you.
