hi lou,

the only recent trike i have seen was a pic (below) of an entrant in the Western Australian Annual Hillclimb Championships earlier this year. Its not a great shot of the bike but ......

im not sure how it differs from classic designs and geometry but im pretty sure they arent using early record Ti axles (classic content?).
