Ok..so here is what happened. I have wanted a recumbent for a long time. But they are so expensive. I went up North to look at an Ebike for 350 used and out of production. I even met Large up there and rode his trike around the block. By the way Large, that was a hoot .. anyway.. I did not buy this Ebike because it needed 100 bucks worth of seat cover work. That means..A 450 dollar bike. As we loaded the Ebike back up to the sellers surprise, He came down to 300. Still too much. Maybe 200, Maybe. But it did not happen and besides, the bike did not suit me ideally since the crank was a tad high for me. so.. Anyway.. You all get the point. Even used recumbent is super expensive and out of my price range. So.. Today, I walk into a local thrift store and POW!!! What you see in the pic is what I saw .. A Sun EZ-1. Wow !! 149 bucks.. Original tires with air, spider webs and all. Bought it 161usd cause of tax, you know the drill, and rode it out the store.. IT is awesome !! And now.. I have been working for an hour or so and have the new Titan going as you see. It seems to be fitting perfectly . This will be a dream ride !!! O yes !!! MY first recumbent. This EZ-1 is an intro Recumbent and costs around 600-700 bucks new. 161 bucks is not cheap, but affordable. As you can see in the pics, I only have the drive and throttle cable and throttle grip left to install. o yes.. And the rear sprocket.. The fun part. Since it has a 20in rear wheel, I will go with the 36T and hope that I can hit 30mph still. I may have to find a 26 or 28T. We will see. My 36T will be my starting point. I figure a 44T will be too large for sure. At any rate... This is the first Titan Recumbent I know of .. Ye Haw !!! I will have more pics to post soon. Enjoy the ride.. I know I will tomorrow. I know I will need the fender kit, flag pole with strobe, and a faring. That will be awesome. I may leave on my EZ and never come back..... Oh yes !!!!!
