3 wheeled tandems...

I am looking for a tandem to take myself and my 22 year old son out. My son is 6 ft tall and has special needs.

Really struggling to find a decent tandem. Either they are 4k or totally special needs adapted.

Any help or advice....links to sites.

Cheers guys....

If you are looking for something that doesn't weigh a ton and is useful for riding more than just a few miles then you will only find them in that price range. The best one is probably the Australian made Greenspeed. I test rode a tandem Greenspeed at the Midwest Recumbent Rally in Wisconsin. It will last a lifetime. I own a single Greenspeed GTO that has many thousands of miles on it and is still as useful today as the day I bought it (used). You might ask the moderator to move this thread to the Recumbent section where more people who own such things post.
You will also find tandem trike owners here: BentRider Online Forums - Powered by vBulletin

There are conversion Forks that let you put 2 steered wheels in front,

and there are at a higher cost tad pole recumbent trikes..
the Greenspeed, from Australia , was mentioned

the drive train of a single rear wheel in the center, function better, most rear trikes just drive the right rear wheel..

a counterpoint tandem has a recumbent front seat, and a regular bike saddle.. so you can talk to each other ..

but a 3 wheel you are getting into one off custom prices...
