That makes me chuckle - I imagined my 90 year old mother getting down into a recumbent trike to fetch a loaf of bread from the baker's.

Take a trike that isn's so low - a Kett with handles should be as easy as most chairs to get into and out of.

I'm looking for an upright trike at the moment as well... Something I can easily pop the wheelchair behind to nip into town (when I say nip, blooming' great hill in the way)
A shortcut has to be a challenge, otherwise it would just be the way. No situation is so dire that panic cannot make it worse.
There are two kinds of people in this world: those can extrapolate from incomplete data.

A week later you'd have trouble selling it for much more than £1000. Indeed, you can get a well equipped second hand machine for £500 or so. I have one for sale as it happens. Limited market you see, as I know you understand.
