Baja recumbent

Just finished a few weeks ago. Doesnt have a lot of acceleration but once its moving it cruises well. Plenty of storage

Cool!

So where do you ride it? How fast does it go? And how does it handle? Did you get the head tube angle/fork rake thing right?

Cool design. As you say, plenty of storage options.

Do you have an electric assist motor on it?

It has a certain "Mad Max" vibe going on. I like!

The last one was motorized, too. Have you made any real bicycles?

Around vegas is where i drive it and i think it probably does 35mph or so. It handles pretty sweet and yes i always have the head tube rake figured out. And its powered by a 99cc predator motor.
