HP Velotechnik street machine
Hi I have an Ice Adventure Trike which I love. Just bought a Hp Velotechnik Street Machine which will be a challenge to ride but will keep me interested in riding.
New recumbent rider here. Just under 100 miles covered in the 3 weeks I've had it.
So what did you get? Any piccies?
I am the new owner (well, since nearly two years ago - where did that go?) of the white Nazca Fuego featured on Dave McCraw's website. Nice.
You can add 1 more rider and 2 more trikes to your list
Trice Classic ( Can you guess where I'd been? )
And my VTX . My favourite of my many things to pedal
Lovely VTX. My new baby, built from frameset. Cromo frame is handmade in the Netherlands:
This was my first recumbent, It proved a very cheap way to try recumbents and was apparently made by a bike shop owner for himself some time back in the 80's.
I then moved on to Street Machine GT which I have enjoyed for the last few years. but is likely to go soon to provide garage space for my latest purchase.
Very recently purchased (still need to lengthen the chain after extending the boom so not had a decent trial ride yet) is this ICE Trice Q with Windrap fairing and Q rotors. This was once owned in the past by Carl (Black Panther) on this forum.
My first and current recumbent. Home built Mach 1 which has been great fun and has inspired me to build a Mach 2.
[/URL][/IMG] [/URL][/IMG] I bought a 2nd hand KMX Tornado the took the plunge and bought an incomplete KMX X Class which I'm trying to revive - so I have 2.
Low bugdet but I always fancied a tadpole. I just didn't expect some parts would be so hard to replace..Still its a learning experience!
edit: Pics added
1st is the KMX Tornado it has mag wheels and botched rear drop-outs (it was previously motorised).
2nd is a KMX x Class, the frame is holed and pitted with rust (write-off - good rear drop-outs tho) it only has one front wheel (why is it soooo hard to match!). I do have the seat cover whicj isn't shown.
A home-brewed a molasses mix (see Youtube - I recommend it) has made the rust disappear from the stub-axles and various other parts.
Where's the pic's
Pics uploaded- see my original post above.
Weather was nice this weekend so took the 'bent for a blast'.
White Swan Russian frame ..Full suspension high racer ..Love it and will never look back ..Looking forward to building a Vendetta 2 clone
@Slogger Thread and pics on the Vendetta 2 clone when you get building please.
(Edit - I see you already have started a thread, nice one)
