what brand of bent trike is this?

I don't know enough about recumbent trikes to identify this bike - no info in the ad

http://sacramento.craigslist.org/bik/1177944230.html

Any guesses?

Absolutely no info in the ad. Plus, the seller thinks that a tricycle is a bicycle.
I don't know the answer.

I don't recognize it, but it looks vaguely like a China Mascot product. Considering the detailed write-up, (NOT!!!) I suspect it's a scam posting.

As the saying goes, "If it's too good to be true, it probably is."

Thanks, everybody. I did try to contact the seller but no return message has been forthcoming.

It looks a lot like a Terratrike Path with the 8-speed option:

But the seat supports don't look right.
