    Here is a picture of a bike frame I built around 1995. I have been thinking of motring it, but where to put the motor? mid frame is out, rear mount/ that would put the engine right by my ear. electric? too short range and too heavy, front wheel? heavy steering. Maybe a motored pusher trailer.

    Looks like something out of a Salvador Dali painting!

    Similar to my recent build except you don't have room for the motor. It may not be the coolest lookin bike but it is a very comfortable ride.

    I guess if it was me I'd put a rear mount engine on your recumbent. The noise of the R/S motor really isn't too bad.


    I gotta get these bikes painted one of these days but I'm havin too much fun ridin.
