Cheap homemade recumbent trike $150? They're getting cheaper.

Comment by Kelvin on Thursday

I think it is only suitable for carrying light items such as a tent or a sleeping bag.

Would that under seat platform be a cargo carrier?

other David's' N+ collection

Have you been out buying again? No Love. I have no idea how they got there. Honestly.

Nice one Kelvin. A bit higher than the Greenspeed, and disc brakes too. Should stop very nicely. What is the platform under the seat?

Very nice, another "green machine". I always had in my head that bents with 700c rear wheels would be faster.

Soon we'll be able to form a bent green pace-line, or maybe a green double-bent pace-line, or a green bent double pace-line, or something ;)
