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.
