I assume you are referring to the surface rust on some of the hardware on the brakes. That is the only rust I saw while I was cleaning it off. The spokes, rims, and frame are clean. That is why I posted the pictures that I did. Wanted to show the flaws, what few there are. Same with the front seat that has started to fray slightly on one side. I am very confident that it (the rust) is cosmetic. If I spent some time on it, I suspect it would clean off. The brakes work perfectly, no squealing or anything like that. I can't explain how that happened, as the bike has been suspended from the ceiling of our garage with bags over the seats most of its life. Humidity of living in Iowa, I guess. I'd be happy to provide more pictures, if you wish. Also, my wife tells me the price is somewhat negotiable if the buyer is another family with a special needs child. For what it is worth, I am coming to Chicago the weekend of July 15th and can easily haul the trike in the back of my pickup.

      Trike is still available and is located in the Iowa City, Iowa area, just a few miles off I-80.

    Thank you for the replies. Our son has a tracheostomy and has lung disease, so his endurance is low. We started out looking at traditional trikes, and a friend sent us this direction. We are also considering an independent trike with pedal assist, but that is pretty costly. We are in Chicago, so would be a bit of a drive. There is a picture showing some rust. Is that the only spot, and is it affecting the operation at all?
