Fair makes your skin creep, don't it. My wife thinks these things are good but then she's not been on a bike since she had her Puch maxi, she wants to get a scooter though. Maybe I'll convert her in the end.

I'm like my regular ride, old battered and bit leaky, but still going.

I can understand someone who is disabled but still wants to ride thinking about getting a trike. But there's no other reason.

Your wife's Puch Maxi has more cred in some ways thatn some hideous trike chop; first powered two wheeler I ever rode was a Puch Maxi in fact. There are scooters and there are scooters. The twist and go abominations are best chucked in a canal or recycled to make spanners or whatever. But a proper old school Vespa or Lambretta is ok.

You could always get her a C90 and then try and work her up to a CG125.
