TRADEWINDS TANDEM RECUMBENT BIKE DIY PLAN
All you need is a few old bike frames and some thin walled steel tubing in order to create your own DIY Tandem Recumbent Bike. Our plans will show you how ti chop and weld, salvaging what you need from discarded or yard sale bikes.
The frame is made from mild steel square tubing, so it is easy to cut and weld, requiring only a hand held angle grinder or hacksaw. All of the transmission parts are salvaged from old biocycles or can be purchased now from any bike shop.
Even if you have never welded or tried building a bike, our plans will guide you through the entire building process with step by step highly detailed photos and text. Anyone can follow our plans and create a great looking functional tandem recumbent bike.
It is easy to modify old bicycle components into something new, and the skills you will learn will allow you to create all kinds of different bikes and trikes as you continue this fun hobby. Tell all your friends to give you their scrap bikes instead of taking them to the dump.
We are all about recycle and reuse, so the Delta Trike Plan encourages using the parts you have on hand, as well as salvaging bicycle components from old unused frames when you have them. You can build a beautiful DIY Tandem bike just like this one for a fraction of the cost of a commercial trike, even if you use many new components. There is a great pride that comes from DIY!
Don't worry about the condition of the bikes you are using for parts, this plan will show you how to clean them up so they function like new again. Even the seat is made using only plywood, foam, and vynyl, so you can build this tandem bike on a small budget.
There is plenty of room for your own modifications such as a power assist motor or cargo space under the rear seat. The easy to make square tube frame allows for easy modifications and addons, so let your creativity run wild.
