How Do All,
Most if not all of my bikes are going up for sale over the next few weeks / months!
Due to my over active and heavy duty active life style, and overloading and breaking my body in all the wrong ways, Osteoarthritis has finally caught up with me, and I am now dealing with severe pain and spasms in my lumber spine and sacroiliac joints of the pelvis, preventing me from riding without considerable pain.
I have all but given up riding in the last 6 months and now only commute to work 3 days a week out of necessity.
I also took a header on the Penny Farthing just before Christmas, riding home from work I got caught out by the ice going up an incline on a canal bridge and ended up hanging from the railings by my right arm, my shoulder is now strapped up and is going to be a long time recovering.
Here I offer for sale my ICE Trikes, Sprint TQ Hybrid Recumbent Trike.
What's a Sprint TQ Hybrid I hear you ask!
I originally had an Ice Trice Q, But I did not like the wide track of the front wheels and this made it difficult getting out of the back gate and navigating narrow gaps through bollards, gates etc... also lacked nippy manoeuvrability.
So I purchased a brand new ICE Sprint Cruciform complete with all new steering gear, and added my TQ boom and rear end making this Sprint TQ Hybrid. narrow enough for any gate, doorway etc, and much better handling.
This Trike is in excellent condition, with a beautiful Ford Gloss Black paint finish! The main cruciform frame and steering components are all as new condition, due to the fact that I have not really ridden the trike since being won over by the High Wheel Bikes.
There are lots of extras that make this trike a ride out of the box deal with nothing else needed except an engine! ;-)
Given the price of a new base model ICE Sprint RS without any extras at £4390 you'll see this is a fair price I'm asking, just the Streamer fairing will set you back 500+ euros new!This Trike is fully and properly serviced, set up and adjusted and is ready to ride today! with no further tinkering or twiddling needed, unless you want to of course!
I have left the chain over long so that it can be adjusted for a wide rage of leg lengths for trial fitting purposes.
The price I am is asking for this Tricycle is: £2,950.00 £2,750.00 £2,500.00 Genuine very near offers will be considered!
Inspired Cylce Engineering, Sprint (TQ Hybrid).
Year of manufacture 2009 boom and rear end, & 2014 for the new Cruciform steering seat cover and and extra parts, Colour: Gloss Black and Anodised Silver
Please note there are some rust stains on the silver boom which were made by a steel clamp from an older fairing mount, these are just stains and not actual rust (aluminium does not rust iron oxide) I never got round the finding out how to remove the staining.
Front: 75mm Sturmey Archer drum brake hubs with Alex X-Rims. and brand new style ICE axles.
New wheel bearings all round
Rear: Ice 9 speed rear hub, Disk brake compatible if you wish to fit a parking brake, with Alex X-Rims and quick release.
