Here for auction is my beloved race trike. It was assembled in this configuration to race in the WHPVA world championships in UK at Fowlmead in 2012 where it was fastest multitrack and Germany in 2013 where it was to fastest unfaired multi-track. Sadly although it has been kept updated it has not seen any racing action since so its time to make some space and say goodbye to it.

So here is a unique opportunity (overused phrase but in this case true) to get your hands on a fast trike custom built from the ground up at the ICE factory in Cornwall UK.

The frame is a one-off and was all hand brazed at ICE by Chris (director) and Ben (designer).

As a trike for racing It was optimized for stiffness and maximum pedaling efficiency , then considerations were given to aerodynamics, weight saving, handling  and reliability."

It went for £4,600 odd.
 

All

 All the best.

Yes there is some confusion as Ben averaged 21-22mph on that machine in 2012, can't find 2013 results, Tim averaged just under 26 mph at Fowlmead in 2012 - fully faired.
Ian, not so ex racer but still of dubious capability
