Special purchase!

Four Riders one Standing while on a railbike tour in Costa Rica Look Ma, One Hand!  Riders enjoying themselves while riding railbikes in Alajuela, Costa Rica Thumbs up! Crossing the tallest railroad bridge in Costa Rica on a railbike tour

We have a number of used units for sale (frames only, no bicycle; as is! may be necessary to install new skateboard wheel bearings and perform other general maintenance).
$450 plus Shipping from Costa Rica*

All taxes and import duties are the responsibility of the purchaser. The frame will need to be modified slightly to fit standard gauge rail in the US. Michael Rohde will be available by phone and email for assistance in getting the frame set up for riding in the US or anywhere else and to answer general questions.

(*shipping example: Costa Rica to Philadelphia, PA USA airport is approximately $200). Before the sale is complete:

  • Purchasers will be required to sign a notarized agreement not to ride on any track without permission – including ‘abandoned’ rail.

Why do we have this policy?  Read our Safety Philosophy page.

**Please note that ‘abandoned’ track is still owned by some person or entity that has property rights and liability issues.  Don’t ride any rail without permission.  For more information about the issue of ‘abandonment’, please see our Safety (Philosophy) page.
