    Hello from Mass.
    ........I'm still "old" and I'm still "bald"!
    These are some of the bikes I've built, with the support of a lot of people HERE.

    After seven years, it was time to do this one over. No more shiny paint. No more reaching forward.

    Welcome fellow New Englander. Cool story and great recumbent build. I like the Chain Tensioner set up and the huge custom bars. I just sold my Ryan Vanguard and bought a RANS Fusion crank forward bike. Looking forward to more form you! I have my eye on Pre War Sterling as well. They are pretty rare. Nice to see you have one.

    Like your bikes, nice variety, one sorta steampunk (I'd like to have a go at that style), nice 'bent with chop attitude, and very nice (20" '?) tandem to chopper. When I get more confident I will branch out, I hope.
