That looks great. A smart use of an old clunker.

Seems more appropriate to the Vintage, Cyclocross or Family and Rec forums.
Not a recumbent. Steve

The Ohio City Bike Co-op has a bike exactly like that.
I was able to cut a nice straight swath of grass with it.
Turning was a bit difficult.
Very fun for parades.
