I'm a cheap bike and trike junkie. I prefer old trikes. I currently own a number of HPVs. I'll try to add some pics later. I joined over 6 years ago and this is my first post...lol.

Welcome, belatedly.

I was born and raised in Jacksonville, and most of my family is still there. I got stationed in Cali in the early sixties and stayed.

Welcome to Bike Forums from west central Florida. stop by the Southeast Regional subforum and say hello to the locals. Lots of FL folks on here and a few Jax folks too.

I have had a lot more but these are pics of that I have. I do not own any of these now. I have had a multitude of old BMX bikes from the 70s and 80s, various "10-speed"s, mountain bikes, beach cruisers, etc.

I sold my Rhoades car and a few trikes. I currently own around 30 trikes. Crazy.

I can't post pics because I don't have any hosted anywhere right now but I have been buying and selling trikes for the last year or so. I have bought over 60 trikes and sold most of them...mostly Miami Suns, Schwinn Meridians and Trailmate Desoto Classics.

My personal collection now consists of:
3 MASA Slingshots
2 Trailmate Desoto Classic trikes
1978 Schwinn Town & Country Tri-Wheeler project
1980 Scwhinn Town & Country Tri-Wheeler w. electric assist, 3 speed Shimano
1979 Columbia trike w/ 3 speed Sturmey Archer
Rebike
Solar Cruiser
1975 Schwinn Collegiate

Plus, I still have about 15 project trikes, a 1978 LeTour III 27" frame project and other misc junk.
