    looking for a used recumbent trike for sale.

    I'm in my 60's and am looking for a recumbent trike for sale. It has to be the kind the folds easily for transporting. I'm looking for a used trike because the new ones are so expensive. Thanks!

    You are severly limiting the selection of trikes by deciding in advance that you want a folder. Probably better than 90% of the used trikes on the market do not fold. Folders are a fairly recent advance in triking. Try the regular ones and you might just like what you ride. I have carried my non-folding GS GTO and an older WW 3.4 inside of vehicles, on the roof, and even on a regular rack that hangs off the back of my vehicle. While you can save some $, decent used trikes are still pretty expensive. Check out www.bentrideronline.com for a fairly large number of trike reviews. It might help you make a decision.

    BentRiderOnLine has a low cost trike- doesn't fold; but $300. Good newer folding trikes ain't cheap but sometimes on BROL classified, Craigslist, ebay.
