Tandem Recumbent Trike?

Saw one of these on the Foster City levee bike trail yesterday... I was past it before I realized how cool it was.

Does anyone know who makes these? It had two wheels in front, low riding and two seats...

I think there's a Greenspeed dealer in San Francisco. Livermore Cyclery in Livermore handles Wizwheels.

Saw this guy on Diablo last fall with his older Dad. I think he said his machine was a Greenspeed.

Greenspeed:
Super fast recumbent rider Zach Kaplan is a dealer for them in the bay area. Or there is Gold Country Cycles in shingle springs (near Sacramento).

I know a couple with one of these. They love it. They got it so their disabled daughter can ride. I saw them out on it a couple of weeks ago. They do seem pretty cool, but are $$$$.$$. The couple was talking of doing some touring on it this summer.
