Recumbent - Huffy Green Machine
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.
found a Green Machine in the trash this morning, and was wondering if anyone has ever tried to make it into an adult trike. I posted also on Bentrider, I think this would make a decent attempt at a very low end recumbent. Any ideas would be great, at least it will keep me busy during the winter wet season.

Better to start from scrach
If you start with crap you end up with crap

For those who haven't looked it up:
Fixie, direct drive, RWS. I'm not sure what you'd want to do with it. Come up with a plan and let us shoot it down! ;)
plan on giving it to my niece, she really wants it, she's riding it right now,

My shop sells them They have a freewheel hub....that often falls to bits
Ive tried them bit small
the man thats over 6 foot oh he has to bend in 2 to get on it
Geuss you could extend the frame under the seat.
Also the rear wheels are plastic so would need changing they wear out
Would look good with alloys from a go cart
