Introduction: Recumbent Trike
Home made recumbent trike - the project took quite some time to complete so there are no real pictures as things came together, but take a look - any questions feel free to drop me a line.

Step 1: All Comes Together
I love recumbents but they are soo bloomin expensive - build your own.
This one is based on a pedal shop mobility scooter - split the chassis and made it longer - lowered the seat - added lights front and back that are a lot better - put the gears in a convenient position- made a really big reflecty pole so dingbats don't squish me in their cars - - lots of little weldy, painty, fiddly jobs and we are out on the road.
picked this basic donor on Ebay for about £20 - now that's my kind of price for a recumbent trike - also a big bonus, the donor was a folding bike, wow who knew.
