Sorry, I just saw your post. IT is actually 2 bikes they are EZ 2 from Sun Bicycles and the company also makes the frame. Everything is independent since it is 2 bikes. They is a bar to hold the handlebars together is the only thing that is not independent.

This is one of my favorite pics of me riding. My brother-in-law took it through the front spokes of his bike while we rode. It is my 2007 Strada.

I bought the whole bike complete including fenders rack and fairing from an individual. I swear, it still has the factory chain oil/grease on it. I rode it 16 miles yesterday; don't tell my wife.

Here are links to some pics of my recumbent trike, which I love and ride every day (weather permitting of course!) I have covered almost a 1000 miles in 3 months and all I can say is .... this trike ROCKS! ....this from a 50 yr old perspective!
https://good-times.webshots.com/photo...99633505tYPJxb

I added some 12v LED lighting to the underneath side of the frame, to make myself more visible to motorists out there:

To those that might be interested, here is a link to my video of the lighting install and final result:

Funny to get used to. Almost twice as wide as my other trikes. so yesterday I thought I made a normal turn- but it did a little bounce, and that big knobby tire just rolled up a curb and was rolling down the sidewalk (glad no one was there). Turned a little; bounced back on the road. I am not used to sitting higher but that trike is oversize everything!

It only has 7 gears, plenty for that trike! Turns in about 10 feet and that surprised me. No brake steer, no pedal steer, no alignment, although adjusting that air seat is challenging!

Since my last posting I have added a front fairing and a tool/tail box that carries the battery for lights. I have also switched out my very basic vinyl seat for one that is contoured better and made from glove leather... a real B@%&*# to sew but oh so nice to feel!
All new parts are, as is the basic frame, made from carbon fiber/epoxy laid up in molds.

My lone recumbent

I am having major Envy pains over some of the amazing bents I have seen from posted photos. I only dream of having a trike someday.
I picked up an older Linear LWB several years ago. I could not get used to the look or feel of the huge ape hangers so swapped with some Rans parts.


Before "photo from owners manual"


As it is today

Local CL find, frame and paint needs a little work, but the seat is in great shape. I have it apart right now, with the first coat of rattlecan paint. I plan on changing the handlebars to ones with more sweep and a different stem, most likely an adjustable one. I had a friend reweld some of the welds, like under the seat and around the seat stays, it wasn't welded very well. I have been wanting a LWB for a while.

Here's my CL treasure. It's a 2005 model in pretty good condition.
It's my first SWB and will probably take me a while to get it properly
adjusted, both seat and bar position, but I'm looking foreward to
many happy miles on it.







Happy Trails
