I thought about that, but I really like the reverse trike recumbents so much better. The cost of the bike has become pretty inconsequential now since the steamification of it runs into some pretty serious coin. It's looking like I'll put something like a $2,800 price tag on this one, maybe $3,500 or more for a recumbent. This doesn't make for a very cheap bike.

Of course, if no one buys the one I'm making now, I won't have to worry about what comes next!

And I'm not going into steam bike production or anything. I just like building stuff more than owning it and if selling one can give me seed money for the next one, that keeps it rolling. This is what I was doing with car projects before my body told me it was time to start working on something smaller!
