I disagree. Around here, a legitimate classic cruiser like that would sell for a good price. The same people that have classic gas scooter fetishes are the type that would snap one of those up. The new replicas just don't compare.

I started building a recumbent for myself this last weekend. It is very similar to the RWD bikes on this page, but is setup to run 26-27" road wheels on both ends. The goal is to keep parts cost under $100 and so far with a nearly complete frame I am up to $32 with a box of recycled parts I just obtained ready to finish it out. The only thing I am currently lacking is a satisfactory crankset, but it's just a matter of keeping a lookout for more junked/garage sale bikes.

I'll post some pictures eventually.

Wheeee! On a good downhill you could hit 60 mph, and it would feel like 120!

Old school=Old's cool

So far the 80 miles (four 20 mile commutes) since I resumed riding two weeks ago have saved 1.6 gallons of B100, $5.12 in fuel cost, and 4 kg of fossil CO2.

Very Nice. I like the look and ride of old road bikes better then modern road bikes.

Here's where my recumbent build stands today. Now that I look at it, I think it was an exaggeration to suggest the frame is nearly complete with all of the little brackets I still need to fit.



Anyway, it is based upon the Atomic Zombie Meridian DIY design. I'm looking forward to getting it done!

an update:
Will reach 300 miles this afternoon, another 80 degree / 80% rh day. My commute times have dropped by about 5 minutes for each 10.2 mile one-way trip. Also dropped about 8 lbs.
Energy savings and fuel cost savings are offset by the extra two showers a day (there's one at work down the hall from my cube), the extra laundry (daily work clothes and cycling gear), the the lack of practicality of 'brown-bagging' my lunch.
I still drive in when the weather is less favorable to bring a week's worth of clothes and a towel or two.

My sprint machine. There is nothing better in the world than to get on this and put out some big watts.
