I'm sure that Trisled are as frustrated as I am. It just doesn't look good for them as a business. I don't know how many overseas orders are hanging on this production run. The delay for the fairings could cost Trisled reputation and in the long run, money.

Well that sucks Peter. It's a pity a local (Australian) supplier can't get the trike to you any quicker than if you ordered it from overseas.  Still, small production runs of unique componentry really put small manufacturers of these types of things at the mercy of outsourcing suppliers.  I know the RV isn't everyone's favourite vela, but for what it is and for a bulletproof everyday commuter, I think it is really brilliant that someone in Australia is prepared to produce it commercially.

This was the last email from Tim at Trisled in regard to my RV:

Hi Peter, 

So, I've been waiting for delivery of the fairings, which are made by a sub contractor of ours. Unfortunately, they are still not done, despite my order now being about 3 months old. I just called & have been told the mould is on the machine & should be producing fairings in the next day or 2. Your chassis is done, so once I have the fairing, your RV won't be far off.
I'll update you once I actually have a fairing in the factory!
Getting impatient.

And I've just been informed that if you don't put a helmet on you'lol probably suffer an horrific foot injury!

That's quite an informal attitude to recumbenteering there. I like it ....
