If you can find a recumbent shop they may be able to fix your wheel.

From the looks of the trike shown by Oldsledz, it would likely just take a new chain and a new set of tires to get it back on the road. It would be a shame to part it out with it being so complete.
Un fortunately, the parts for penninger recumbents are almost non-existent. I have had the bile in the best repair shop in Tucson for 3 months now and they tell me the rim is a special made one and is on backorder and they do not know when it might get here, if ever. I would hate to get rid of the trike for that but my options seem very limited. Any ideas would be appreciated.
