Alt Bike Culture - Any geniuses built alternative bikes (trikes, recumbents etc.) from scratch
Bikeforums.net is a forum about nothing but bikes. Our community can help you find information about hard-to-find and localized information like bicycle tours, specialties like where in your area to have your recumbent bike serviced, or what are the best bicycle tires and seats for the activities you use your bike for.

At school, we are currently building a recumbent bike for a competition in Melbourne. We designed the frame, welded the tubes, etc. We did a horribly shoddy job, but judging by some stuff made on this subforum, I'm sure theres some much more experienced people.
Any geniuses built recumbents, trikes, bikes that don't even have a name, etc all the way down from choosing material, designing and welding the frame, and putting on all the components.
They have a home builders thread in the forums on bentrideronline.com , it's a recumbent only forum but truck loads of useful info there.

My own design recumbent, unfinished, seems I keep getting distracted by shiney things.

Take a look at:
I built two recumbent trikes mainly from ideas I found here: http://www.ihpva.org/people/tstrike/home.htm
My trikes were based on the Short Wheel Base Tadpole Style Trike designs on that site, but I used 26in wheels all around. I can post pictures of my trikes if you'd like.
I also used to participate in the "Great Moonbuggy Race" when I was in college, we used to build folding tandem recumbent off road HPVs from scratch. Some info here: http://moonbuggy.msfc.nasa.gov/
