    Name this bent?

    Does anyone know what brand of recumbent this bike is, or whether it's a homemade job?

    Reminds me of an older China Mascot bike. There are numerous models that they make/have made that were never represented in the states. Notice the mono fork and the low BB to seat height geometry? CM all the way.

    The seat looks exactly like the seat on my Actionbent Jetstream. So China Mascot is spot on, maybe "Mid Racer" that actionbent sold for a while, given the Mono blade fork. I'd ask this at the Actionbent forum on Yahoo, they'll sort it out. Maybe Jeff-O will be able to answer this.

    Yes, that looks lika a China Mascot FRP seat and pad. Weird frame, though.

    That's not the midracer, but it does look like a China Mascot frame. It might be old enough that it's discontinued, or it could be so new that hardly anyone has seen it before. Hard to say....

    The power side chain tube is reminiscent of first-generation CM bikes, too.

    The fork seals it: China Mascot PB-966 it is. Thanks for the pointers, folks
