Help ID a Dutch tadpole trike

Hi. I remember seeing a pretty unique trike somehere online. It was a tadpole trike, made in Holland. The unique thing about it is it was fairly upright, had independent front suspension so it leaned around corners, and it collaped and became a shopping cart at one's destination. Any ideas?

Mike

Pictures would really help. There is a thread about how to post pictures. Try user assistance or PM a blue star (moderator).

If I had a picture I'd have posted it. I was asking from memory, but Google "upright tadpole trike" answered my question. It's the Feetz trike. http://www.feetz.nl

Sweet, for sure.

Optima Rhino FS, I think you mean this one.
I know I love it and would buy it if I had the money...
