I have a copy of the Easy Racer plans. Easy to build for a first time project. I also have the Bent-Tech plans. And have found a few sets of plans on the web. Funny thing is I havent used plans to built any of my homebuilt bikes. There is also someone selling plans on E-bay

Go to https://www.recumbent-bikes-truth-for...ebuilders.html and click the link for the free plans. They are in PDF format and you will need Adobe Acrobat to download it.

Not really any free plans here but lots of great information.
Great Recumbent Info Here
Why do you need plans just make it up as you go along based on the information you can find and the stuff you have available.
Worked for me
