My dad trash-picked me an old tandem bike. It would need a lot of work to make it safe to ride. Upright bikes have been causing me back pain and arm numbness, so I decided to convert it into a recumbent.
The frame is taking shape. I need to make seats, seat brackets, front crank boom, and various bits and cabling. Dad also donated his old 3-speed for brakes, hub, and other minutiae.
I’m happy with a good start. I’ll post updates as work progresses. It may be a little while as my big yearly job has arrived.
