Tired of not being seen when riding your bike in traffic? New Zealand biggest bike is up for sale.

This monster tricycle is being auctioned off for the registered charity @Heart Inc which supports kiwi kids born with heart defects. 100% of the proceeds will go to @Heart.

Visit www.heartnz.org.nz to find out more about this amazing charity.

The bike is a professionally built monster. Originally built for a cycling safe campaign, the front wheel is 1.7m high and the bike weighs over 150kg!

Would make a great promotional tool, the bike gets loads of attention when taken to events or sitting outside a bike shop.

The technical details:
Frame is Aluminium professionally built designed by a Mechanical Engineer.
Rear steering, two large steering cables move the rear axle.
Drive train is 24speed Shimano Alivio all brand new running through a motorbike chain drive for the final reduction.
Dual hydraulic brakes for stopping.
Electronic camber adjust to handle changes in the angle of the road surface. An electronic winch controlled from the handlebars changes the angle of the rear axle to level the bike (very cool sounds a bit like a terminator robot). 18V LiOn battery and charger will be provided with the system.
Current top speed of around 10km an hour; it is surprisingly easy (all things considered) to pedal.
Fully assembled size 2.4m long 2.2m high 1.6m wide.
Front wheel can be removed for storage or transport down to a size of 1.8m x 2m x 1.8m. Can be transported on a car trailer with the wheel removed.
Bike suits a rider over 5"8 due to limited adjustment of seat position. Changes to the frame could accommodate someone shorter.
Seat is a Brooks leather saddle valued at $200 (the bike has been well built from quality materials)
Suited for flat roads with a slight camber
Will not ride over cars only other small bicycles

The purchaser is required to undergo 1 hr training on how the camber adjust works and some tips on riding the bike safely.

Payment is made directly to @Heart Inc.
