Dad's new bike - what is it?

 Well it's a trike and he loves buying these kind of crazy things, he'll probably do it up for cycling with the ageing Labrador or something?

Well what is it, can't quite see the head badge, but it's definitely not a spesh, ignoring the stickers!

The triangular frame structure behind the seat is identical so I'd have to agree

But far more importantly ... what is up with those pedals?!?!

yeah, the drive side one looks like it's got a block of wood stuck on it

If the seatpost's stuck / can't be lowered further then the only way to reach the pedals would be to make them bigger

Make mine an Italian with Campagnolo on the side

Fair point, the seat does look pretty damn low already though.

So - you think the previous owner was a smurf???

Smurf would explain the colour.

Some trikes adapted for use by disabled cyclists have weighted pedals to make locating your feet easier, and providing a more stable platform. Could be a homemade adaptation.

Smurfs though. Far more likely.

They're not "pedals", madscotrider....they're paddles.
