Hi everyone - finally got my trike back from repairs! I bought "Gorgeous" in June from a good friend, who bought it a year ago this past September from someone else. My friend put some of the funds I gave him away in case something went sour - yeah, guess what - things went crazy for me - turns out the owner before my friend had the crankshaft welded (cheap fix) and I was the "lucky" one riding her when it cracked in half!!! Friend, true to his word, got his mechanic to do repair and now she rides like the beautiful gal she is! Fortunately, I was only practicing when the crankshaft let go! Still have not taken roadtest for my license endorsement, but think I'll be confident enough by the end of the month. I'm back and please wish me luck!
