Another in a line of one-off recumbents I built in the late 1990's.
1.75 inch main frame with smaller secondary drive train supports.
A 20" fork with a welded brake bridge of the 12" front tire.
A recycled BB from a donor bike.
Folding pedals replaced the fixed ones used in the early build.
A 52/ 42 170 mm cranket arm. I modified a freewheel by taking out the rachet pins allowing the gear to now act as a mid-drive assembly.
Basic Shimano rear derailleur modified with a washer to allow it to mount on to bolt. A basic front derailleur off an old bike.
A steering column designed to fold down into the bike frame. A bolt and nut lock it into place. A quick release allows the upper section to be removed from the steerer tube base.
A basic stock bike seat with a gel cover.
Side pull brakes.
The front wheel see in the picture has been replaced by a 12" plastic mag rim for greater strength.
A 12" tire/ rim that uses a freewheel allowing me to set the rest of the drive train up.
Lights, a rear mounts frame bag, a hockey bag to carry the bike when taken apart for travel on other types of transportation like a bus or train.
