Steve's SWB recumbent

"I cut up two bikes - men's mountain bike and a child's mountain bike. To assist my building I made copies of the German Speed Machine to full size and used them as a blueprint.

I cut up the parts to size and a friend welded them, since I did not want to buy a welder.I had so many offers to buy the bike, I never did get around to powder-coating or painting it.

I do not like any sort of shock system on recumbents, so I will build my next SWB recumbent definitely without shocks and use lightweight rectangular and square aluminum tubing.

I built the bike in the US, but I am located in the Mediterranean.

Kind regards, Steven Burton"
