TOURMASTER OSS RECUMBENT BIKE PLAN
You can build your own DIY long wheelbase recumbent bike using parts taken from an old mountain bike and and extra frame. Use basic tools such as a drill and angle grinder to repurpose your old bike pars into something better.
Learn how to chop up a bicycle frame and turn it into something new. You can use any thin walled steel tubing or bicycle tubing to create your new DIY recumbent bike frame. Never built a bike? No problem, our plans show you how to do everything.
We are all about recycle and reuse, so the TourMaster bike Plan encourages using the parts you have on hand, as well as salvaging bicycle components from old unused frames when you have them. There is a great pride that comes from DIY!
Wondering what to do with those old bike sitting the the corner of your garage? Well know they can have a purpose. Chop, hack, weld and ride our of your workshop on your home built recumbent bike.
Build a comfortable seat from plywood, foam and vinyl covering. With plenty of room on the frame you could install just about any type of seat, like a mesh seat or even something as large as a car seat. It's all about building it the way you want.
The linked steering system is easy to make using hardware store components and thin walled steel tubing. For less than the cost of a tank of SUV gas, you can be pedalling your way to health on your own DIY recumbent bike.
The chain routing system keeps your chain high off the ground and free of grit and dirt. You only need a hardware story v-bely pully to make your chain pickup system. All other transmission components are taken from the original bicycle.
There is no point exercising indoors on a stationary bike when you can get out in the fresh air on your own home built recumbent bike. Leave the car at home more often and get there under clean human power. Your legs will thank you.
