With two donor bikes and some other junk, any tinkerer can build a front-wheel-drive, center-steer, semi-recumbent bicycle. (FWD/CS/SR bike for short.) No welding or brazing required! No special tools required! No power
tools required (but they can help).
Inspiration for this project came from the following pages:The $18 Recumbent BicycleBuild your own recumbent bike, the camel bikeCruzbike
Why? Because I wanted a recumbent, but I'm too cheap to buy one, and I'm too lazy to build a traditional one. It may be ugly, but it's the most comfortable bike I've ridden!
