A really lovely George Longstaff Racing Tricycle in Reynolds 853. http://reynoldstechnology.biz/our_materials_853.php

These trikes are almost rarer than hens teeth.

Top Tube 54.5cm (c-c)
Seat Tube 56.4cm
Top Tube Stand over height 73.5cm
Would Suite 5ft 9 - 6ft 2.
Running 26" wheels to lower the centre of gravity and make cornering more efficient. Mavic Rims
Full Shimano 10 speed 105 throughout. It is not a compact chainset.

Twin brakes on the front

This trike is dynamite - it just flys as you would expect with this specification. It is not for the faint hearted!

I hope I have done justice to this pretty trike. A bargain at the starting price.
I have cropped and brightened the auction images for the blog format.
If only every eBay auction was companied by such superb photography! 

This trike remained unsold. Always a risk with a high starting price. [£700]
