Greetings, Just thought this would be a good place for my rolling junk heap:
Take 1 weight bench off the neighbors curb.
add a $20 BMX bike from the thriftstore (suspension preferred).
munge them together. This is technically a DIY no-weld recumbent with full suspension.
fix the weak areas (hammered conduit braces and garage door pullies).
I've got most of the bugs worked out, still needs a lot of work but is definately in the useable category and gets used pretty much every day. It is really comfortable to ride.
I slapped the trailer together with leftovers so I could make a firewood run (brrr). Simple eyebolt captured with a regular bolt, sloppy noisy but works fine.
Oh, happy thx giving.
