    Dude, that one is sssSICK! It's funny cause I was torn between making mine really nice-ish like his or just keeping with the usual gnarly aesthetic. I figured somewhere in between would be best. Although I was reeeeally tempted to toss a Brooks Antique brown saddle with matching grips and wooden fenders on there, hehe...

    Most of them are pretty nice though.

    The brown would really tie in the gum walls, I'd go for it, have you considered a Wald basket?

    Cool! . Have you noticed an improvement in top speed? Did you develop this kit yourslf or is it off the shelf?
    I've posted some stuff on page 16, 17 on velomobiles in this very thread. If you're interested in what the Aussies are up to of course

    EDIT: That touring tallbike is just nuts! Must have big balls and long legs

    Yes. It was pretty slow as it was when stock- but piece by piece (carbon fiber hard shell seat then short cranks- 155mm, then 2 fairings, then all shifting components, then thinner tires); brought the speed up a little each change. When the shell cut the air resistance I was pleased and stopped changing things!

    That kit was a mass production attempt by Easy Racers, but it failed; so I bought the fiberglass/kevlar pieces and changed their plan- widened the front, lowered it way down (too low, sometimes hits the ground but safer that way), closed it up (they had planned an open top). Built up speed slowly and eventually it is scary- no suspension mainly, but it lasted 2 years that way- no uphills or distance.

    December 1; I had a 36 volt motor put in. I still prefer pedaling, but I have the acceleration and distance I was missing. Problem is: it is very heavy now.

    I saw the european Aero Rider velomobile in about 1999, and searched for those- one place was the Australian Pedal Prix. The rest of the world is way ahead of the US when it comes to velomobiles.
    Thanks for letting me know! More happy velomobile surfing!

    Quick and dirty flipover of a dumpster find. Yes, it was that awesome color when I picked it up.

    Inverted and reversed the fork, flipped the cranks and the rear wheel, added bar extensions. Only frame mod was a minor chainring clearance issue (1/4") on the formerly non-drive side. Fixed with a hammer.
    Ride lots, have fun, skid often!

    someone on my street threw this bike to the curb. it used to be a pink girly bmx bike that they put a banana seat on and a rattle can gold black fade paint scheme. I deep sixed the chainguard, sawed off the reinforcement bar from a free donor bmx bike set of handlebars and put a $10 26" springer on it. it's a little bouncy of a ride, but fun.



    i hand painted this on the seat. what's a chopper without a iron cross -

    That's cool! Have you rode it yet? Don't try to sit down

    I've only ridden it about 1/2 mile so far. Its very different, but I love it. It rides very tall, but you can still stand over the top tube. The crazy geometry means all steering, no leaning in turns.

    Already put grippier pedals on, trying some ape hangers tomorrow. The multi-mtb-extension bars are a little too flimsy.

    As for comfort...I've named it Crampy.

    Heres a pretty crappy pic of it, the stickers are gone now:


    And a pic of me riding it.
