I'm thinking about going to look at this trike. What would be a good offer on this bike?

Specialty/novelty item. Value is all about what it is worth to you.

Realize if you try to sell it later, it could be very challenging.

+1 Whoever built it put a lot of $$ into it. But that has nothing to do with value. Some items are worth much more than what the seller has into them, other items are worth a lot less than the seller's investment.

I always think of my exit strategy when I buy. Trying to not loose money if possible.

Depends on your personal situation/needs.
