1999 Hand Bike

A project built for a disabilied person in London, ON. Just the normal amount of recycled bike parts mix. It was built in 1999.

The front drive train section has leg mounting points to allow the legs to sit in place.

Crankset/Bottom Bracket:
A one piece crank arm. I prefered the use of a 3 piece assembly to allow the two crank arms to face the same way but the customer wanted the set shown in the final assembly.

Handle grips mounted on to the pedals to allow rider the use their hands to move the bike.

A 38 tooth chain is used to get a lower gear ration for easier use when ridden.


An old office chain converted for use on the bikes frame.

Coaster Brake

Front Wheel/Hub/Tire:
20" 405mm sized tire/ rim

Rear Wheel/Hub/Tire:
20" 405mm sized tire/ rims

Rear carrier rack.

More Info:
This project worked OK but needed more refinment to improve the overall function went in use.
