Voyageur Long Wheel Base Recumbent - 95% finished

Yes, Brad's back at it in the garage. In the distance I can imagine grinder sparks flying, the steady hum of the welder, and the chipping hammer working overtime. He's determined to take advantage of the summer weather we are finally having to get more bikes done. Making great headway with this latest bike project.

The next project, which judging by the progress I saw last night should be done in a few days, is called the Voyageur Long Wheel Base Recumbent. All I can tell you at this point is that it has two wheels, round tubing, under seat steering and suspension. Brad describes the Voyageur as "a Marauder-style with a higher seat and under seat steering" designed for touring, especially for those who like recumbents but prefer to sit higher up for better visibility.

There will be a rear cargo area perfect for carrying panniers, packsacks, etc.

Don't have any pictures yet, but judging by what he's done so far, painting will be done this weekend. Stay tuned!
