Since buying my Penny Farthing I have fallen in love with direct drive bikes, they are so easy to ride and give you back as much energy as you put in, meaning almost no fatigue on long road trips.
Purposely did not want a lay down type recumbent as the whole feet in front of ya look is not for me but this build gives perfect leg extension and allows ya to really rest into the seat/backrest.
And I really miss my old Chopper bike - this ticked all the boxes.
Step 1: Direct
Ya get to have a choice as to how ya want to ride with your handlebars - pic1 or pic2
Step 2: Built From
Liked the idea of using the uni seat as a saddle, it worked well but didn't quite give me the adjust-ability I wanted to be really comfortable and have my feet in the right position - so I made my own this was - - comfy but mmmmmm even better with an air filled squidgy.
Step 3: To Conclude
A super simple build that was a pleasure to do - plus it gave me a bit of welding practice - it has been over 20 yrs.
