All-terrain wheelchair

The problems are (1) they're in England, and (2) the chair costs over two thousand pounds:

The home page takes awhile to download because of the huge animated image:

The chair is shown with the seat facing to our left - two front wheels, one rear castored wheel.

More nearly mundane: wheel covers for your chair:

(and yes, that circle of fire is the art on one of their covers)

While I think its a dandy wheelchair I got one gripe. Why does everyone think T6 / 6061 aluminum is such a good grade? The way some companies market it one would think its one of the better grades when its one of the worst cheapest grades to be had.

Good luck welding attachments to the frame, aluminum is so freakin' fickle anyhow.
