One of the two photos emailed me that helped me decide. When posted to the tricycle web group, they cautioned me to make sure the photos were not of the trike 25 years ago, because it looked suspiciously new! (photo was in February 2017!)

A view of the axle, one of two photos emailed. This and the first are the first pictures I had of it, and the only along with the third. I spent a lot of time looking, zooming in, enhancing, etc. waiting for it to arrive!

A third photo Terry sent me when he had disassembled & compacted it. Obviously he has had some experience in shipping trikes (and bikes, incl. internationally, having moved to/from UK-US several times).

This is the first I saw of the actual item, as I extracted it from its sea of poly foam in the box... More photos when I get it finished and I 'do a shoot' so can see some decent details...
Hey, that's now, look on!

Finally a longer ride, had to stop for this admonishment (even bikes OK on trail, just not on beach - duh).

I was a little surprised how much (how little) triking I'd done before I managed to find myself near the tavern (this one makes their own beer, too).

Presque Isle park scene 1, looks like the Baltic Sea; part of the reasons so many Finns & Swedes settled here in the 19th century.

Presque Isle park scene 2, reminds me of Finland (or more precisely, the Karelian Isthmus around Koivisto [Russian: Primorsk] that was taken over by Russia in 1939, as I've never been to modern Finland).

Patches newly sewn (had it done professionally by a local seamstress for $21 thus saving myself $22 of injuries),
on a embarrassingly new Carradice Camper Longflap.
The only ones that are 'legitimate' to me are the RSF & TA; I've never been a member of the others.
Also possibly legitimate is the Blatz, which I enjoy (drinking) and which you'll see later on the other side.
The League of American Wheelmen, by the way, were the designers of the original 'winged wheel' logo
and, while retaining to their credit the winged wheel (unlike the CTC!) have changed their name to the less inclusive
'League of American Bicyclists' [!], much like the similarly confused (former) CTC.
The Bicyclists' Touring Club, in days of former glory and inclusiveness, changed their name to the
Cyclists' Touring Club in 1883... And recently in conjunction with contemporary PC and logo-crazy confusion, changed it to - really!
- CUK! (= Cycling UK - sheesh)
Anyway, I like the winged wheels (note the US & UK ones rotate in opposite directions!)

Another view at Presque Isle Park - it's not about to roll off the edge; I was careful!
