    Recumbent LWB with Honda 35 Motor

    Has any one done a Long Wheel Base Recumbent like a Ryan or Infinity with the motor mounted in the front, chain drive with the power <after gear reduction> applied to the crank set on Left of main crank, 52 teeth or more. I need power assist, for hills, in my old age.
    I have an Infinity look alike that I built from 1040 moly tubing with an old Ryan seat.
    I have a Honda 35 that I plan to use. Is there an electric clutch out there that will work on the Honda motor.

    Welcome to MBc. If you got the ability to fabricate your bike, there shouldn't be any problem in adding a motor. Start a thread to discuss it in the recumbent section, and I'll toss some ideas and opinions your way.
