It is with great sadness and regret, that Graham and I have come to the realisation that we can not safely ride the Quetzal on the road in an enjoyable manner.
Due to my lack of counter weight and height, and Graham not being comfortable or confident on two wheels and also having difficulty with an off balance feeling, neither of us feel that we could actually go loaded touring and have a relaxing time doing so. had I been taller / heavier this would not have been a problem!
So we have decided that it is best to sell the Quetzal and buy a Tandem Trike instead which in our case was much easier for the both of us.

(Me at the Mama Mia Cafe in Windsor)

Please Study the many photos, which for an integral part of the description.

The Quetzal was bought from Nazca Bikes in 2017 and is in Excellent, New condition! we did however have one small accident due to a diesel covered roundabout and a very small amount of cosmetic damage was caused to the front handle bar (which we have a brand new replacement for) and also Cosmetic damage to the two right hand side brake levers, both of which function perfectly still, but a new replacement is included in the package for the stoker brake which you may wish to fit,or not. The frame, seats and all other parts of the bike remain undamaged as the handle bars and our bodies got scraped instead!

(The Quetzal without the extension frame section)

The Quetzal originally cost well in excess of  £5,100.00 GBP not including the shipping costs, and has lots of additional items which were optional extras from Nazca Bikes, like full touring racks, 180mm disc brakes, extension frame section, ventisit seat pads additional mirrors etc.
The Quetzal also comes with some spares and extras, please see photos for details.

the bike can be easily separated and folded in half making it very easy to transport, in the normal configuration (without the extension spacer) the frame is hinged and this make folding it a breeze.

Due to Graham being over 6 feet tall a spacer / extension frame section was ordered from Nazca and is fitted just behind the stokers cranks, you can see this in the photos and also without it in the photo above.

This Quetzal is fully and properly serviced, set up and adjusted and is ready to ride today (barring adjusting the leg length)! with no further tinkering or twiddling needed, unless you want to of course!


Graham is more than happy to have anyone come visit Him and examine the Quetzal without obligation. He is in the Hayes area Hillingdon, Middlesex.

Please note: spd pedals are fitted to the bike and can be used for a test ride, but are not included in the sale, unless you wish to purchase these separately.
Also please note: that we will try to accommodate anyone wishing to test ride the bike, however we will not shorten or lengthen the chains, or remove the extension frame section as to do this for every person would be unreasonable. we will however adjust to boom length for the captain within reason.
