That's the Pedalofit, a clamp-on cycle for wheelchair users so they can a) exercise and b) look cool zooming around the neighborhood with their new ride.

For those who want a little more speed, there's the Elektra and Elektra Lite motorized version.

I was in Europe last year and saw a similar rig, except the peddles were on the handlebars. It mounted to a standard wheel chair by the rider without getting out of his chair. Mounting took about 3 seconds as he snapped it into place and he peddled off with a friend on a regular bike. I didn't get a manufacturer's name, but it was a really neat idea. I do have a picture. He had undone the front to enter a store and then just reattached and rode off...

I dig this. I was thinking of turning my wheelchair into a tricycle and decided to poke around google to see if anyone else had done it. Looks like someone has. A setup like this would be more comfortable than my mountain bike. It also might be easier to transport stuff via trailer of some kind.

It needs ape hangers and a stretched out frame. Maybe some leather side bags. A skull that shoots out flame would be good on the front. And spinners, that would work ....
