Just recently finished a LWB recumbent. The frame, seat and handlebars are all completely built and tig welded from raw materials. I can't take credit for some of the design, the frame design came from a LWB being sold on eBay and the seat design is like a Rans seat. The handlebars are my design though. The components are from a donor Specialized Hard Rock MTB that I got at a second hand store for $30.00. I doubt that I have over $150.00 total in this bike. Fun to ride and fairly stable with the rake at 70 degrees and about 3" of trail. Fairly manuverable too, for a LWB, as I can take a 180 degree turn in a standard street width. Check it out below and let me know what you think! Click on the link and go to the recumbent bike link.
