Anyone here have a Burley like this one?

Any thoughts on quality/price?

The Craigslist posting was deleted by its owner. What did the Burley look like?

Burley stopped production of their recumbents to concentrate on their core products, which they believe are their trailers. The rights to the recumbent designs have been sold and the new owners are currently re-introducing some of the models. You can probably get more info from the BicycleMan in Alfred NY, but here is their page on Burley, which should help identify whatever you saw.

The company that bought the Burley designs and tooling is Razor's Edge Recumbents. They are in Tennessee, and are working to make the bikes entirely domestically, mostly in Tennessee. Here is a link to the LWB design they are currently producing:
