I've got a C5... ;) Had it over a year now, great fun but hard work (the motor is practically useless and you need to pedal "most" of the time!)

Took it on a great roadtrip (lol) earlier this year from the Hoover factory where they were produced in South Wales, down the valleys to a Transport Festival (yawn).

Made it in a few local newspapers too :D

Few pics...

That's me in the blue cap, last but one in the line... ;)

Always turns heads when you're out and about on a C5 - you've gotta have a sense of humour though, it helps to think they're s**t just like everyone else! :lol:

I got mine for £170 then forked out another £90 to get it delivered - they are BIGGER than you expect!!

An "average" price for a working C5 would be about £220 - £250 though. And expect the buggers to breakdown once or twice! :)

The learning curve is fairly good though, particularly if you're mechanically minded and know about things like axles, sprockets and disc brakes (I don't, but I've learned a LOT!)

I'd recommend getting a C5 for anyone and everyone remotely interested in them - they're the best fun on 3 wheels, you meet/chat to a lot of people whenever you take it for a spin and without exception everyone who sees it is smiling! :)

If anyone's interested, the best place to look would be eBay and then get some specialist help, advice and parts/service from www.c5alive.co.uk
