    I've got a Worksman trike that I bought from the Cleveland Ford plant for $50. It's seen a lot of use, but it's built like a tank. I have no doubt it will outlast me, and I've hopefully got another 40 years in me.

    I've ridden Worksman for over 40 years both at home and at my job in an engine factory in Illinios. I've seen a Worksman trike haul a broken steam pump ,that weighed over 1200 lbs, from the machine to the repair shop and back to the machine many times in the 40 years I worked there. When it comes to the word "tough" Worksman owns it!
    My preferred bicycle brand is.......WORKSMAN CYCLES
    I dislike clipless pedals on any city bike since I feel they are unsafe.

    It is a light load... The trouble is finding anything heavy enough to weigh it down!

    It had a broken bin, which allowed seed to pour through the bottom, so, it got scrapped as well. But it was so light! The plastic bucket ended up being half of the weight.

    And it didn't prevent the thing from endoing shortly after the picture was taken, either.
