Much obliged for information.
Trice still for sale by Baz, they are superbly engineered,been in production for 25 plus years , I have seen recumbent Trikes in the past and Trice are by far the best engineered . If you look at the Trice Website you will see this machine is quite cheap compared to a new one . I have no connection with Trice or with Baz incidentally.

I will point out that whilst the tusk rear end is an older design I am fairly confident that ICE haven't changed the main frame tubing diameters, so it's still compatible with current rear ends. Not that you'd *want* to change it, but sometimes needs must.
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.

Yes, the frame parts are all interchangeable.
The reason ice stopped using this excellent rear end was simply due to the cost of manufacturing it, all the machining and specially bent tubes made it quite an expensive part to make in comparison to the simpler welded tube version they use now.
And you have to admit it is much more aesthetically pleasing on the eye.
This is why I did not feel the need to buy a new rear end.
It obviously doesn't have the same flat fold arrangement but the rear end does still fold, however without the rear wheel twisting flat.
