Original 1994 Build
Recumbent bikes are more comfortable and more efficient than most other bikes. They can be very expensive since most are hand made. I originally built mine in 1994 from a set of plans purchased from Easy Racers. It was cut from two old road bike frames and only a small amount of new tubing.
After riding the Tour Easy replica on and off for 25 years I decided it was time to freshen it up. The first step was to strip the bike down, sandblast the frame and add some cable stops.
