Recumbent Bicycles

I started building recumbent bicycles, as a hobby, around 1989. I like short wheelbase recumbents (SWB) and most of my designs are of this configuration. With age I've become more interested in power assist for my bikes. These efforts are also documented. Here are some of my more notable efforts.

The bikes built in 1997, with 1999 power assist, have served us very well. I've not completed new bikes since that time. I've had ideas for improving the power assist and toyed with the idea of building a couple of trikes. However, our current bikes work well enough that I've not pursued new ones. Maybe soon.
