A mate and I have gathered possibly enough old bits to have a stab at welding up an MTB recumbant.. something for shed tinkering during the winter :D

Always wanted a Windcheeta, they are the coolest of the cool. But they are soooo low that when you do get run over and killed you can just take the wheels off and they double as a coffin!

Obviously there's not enough info there as they haven't even got a pic of a Speedy (Windcheetah) or a Ratcatcher. Mike Burrows is a legend at making recumbents imho. 8)

Never seen one in action, but they do look tremendously cool. That said, riding an ordinary bike in traffic is dangerous enough with the idiots that drive these days! :evil: These dudes are deffo playing 'Recumbent Roulette' - almost as deadly as a revolver!
