(Disc Brake Version)

The Greenspeed GTO Touring Trike is designed for touring, and has been made so that it will pack down into two suit cases for aircraft, train or coach travel. There will also be a fair amount of room in these cases for clothes, etc.. More stuff can be packed into pannier bags, which can be taken on board an aircraft as cabin luggage.

Note that these photos show the 2000-2003 model GTO, later models have different steering and seats.
