This is my latest build. It has a Honda GXH50 motor with the Grubee GearBox.
It has Schwalbe Marathon Plus tires and thorn proof tubes front and rear. It has a 56 teeth chainring on the front so I can still pedal with some resistence when cruising at 30 MPH. The maximum speed is 42 MPH with a 50 teeth sprocket on the rear. It was a lot of fun to build and even more fun to ride. I'm still debating whether I should leave the fenders black or paint them orange. What do you think? I also just bought some plastic primer and am going to paint the red engine cover orange to match the bike.
I've also included a picture of another recumbent that I built last year. It is yellow and has a Grubee Skyhawk 49cc 2 stroke motor.

Nice! I bet that thing is a comfy ride, for sure.

I would leave the fenders black. Have a nice black/orange combo going on there :)

Butch K,

I can see the engineering to make it all work. I like the way you put it all together. They are both nice and the bright colors make it more visible on the road.

Nice looking bikes. The in frame design for a recumbents is unusual, but look really good :) Looks like a fun set of bikes :D
