Always one to save money when I haven't got it I have been thinking of building a recumbent. Has anyone here done this before? I am still thinking about a cargo vehicle that I can use for work so it will probably be along the lines of an AVD Stablemate. However, despite having some engineering background I only have a wood workshop and some heavy engineering tools. I am sure that I could build one that weighs 400kg but that would be pointless. Are there any specific parts that I would have to buy? I am figuring I will need brakes, gear sets, pedal and chainset, general cycle components, etc. Are there wheels that would be easy to convert to single side mounting or are they specials? If there is anyone in the Manchester or North West area who is happy for me to measure up their recumbent so I can get some dimensions that would be really helpful. Any advice would be much appreciated. Thank you.
