Ouchies

I crashed my bent.

First time out after painting it I hit some black ice in a corner... next thing you know I was sitting on my @$$ on the road.
Only minor road rash on the butt... the bike suffered a smashed shifter and I bent the pivot for the underseat steering, this crimped the main tube.

But it's all fixed now The bike that is my butt still hurts.

Didn't use plans... I looked at a lot of information online and pretty much made it up as I went along

This site inspired my design... check out bike No 2 it's the one I studied most.
Click Here For Info

Other than that try Home Built or do a search for home built recumbent on Google.

When I get some pics of mine I will post them but it might be a little while yet.
