The heart of the frame is older style kids bike that is cut apart.

A one piece forged steel crank arm.

A 38 tooth front chain ring and a 16? tooth rear drive gear. The chain is a number of chains placed together.


The original handle bar was old style used on stringray bikes but not shown is the seat post tube/ seat post design to refine the one shown here.

A custom built seat using 1/2" steel tubing.

Coaster brake.

Front Wheel/Hub/Tire:
20" by 1.75" tire.

Rear Wheel/Hub/Tire:
20" by 1.75" tire.

More Info:
I wanted to build a very simple recumbent bike wthout the worry of any type of cables. The bikes low gearing means it is slow but is was fun to use when I had it. It was given away in a draw at a event in London, ON. The last time I saw it was a few years later at the Tim Hortons on Springbank Drive in London, ON. I hope it is seeing still being used and is being enjoyed!
