Tater, since both frames have the side pull brakes, perhaps you could try doubling up the back ones. Replace the bolt with a piece of allthread, and have a brake mounted on each side of the frame tube. Just a thought.

good idea, thanks van!, i am making a few changes to the plans though. for instance, instead of killing myself trying to finding a 20 inch wheel with a 6 inch stem im just gonna attach a 20 inch wheel, or posibly a 16. (all the newer bikes have 5 inch stems.) and insted of hunting down a 5 thousand foot stem for the bars, im gonna use some old ape hangers. these things are easy to change, if they dont work out.

Way to go Tater. But I'm sorry, that just does not look like a recumbent to me.
