My homebuilt Tour Easy Replica recumbent bike

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.


2019 Rebuild

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.

  Frame back from powder coating. It turned out just like the original colour

  The completed bike in all its glory. New seat, new components, updated bearings.

  One more look. Including a matching helmet.
