Bruce Smith's Wood-Framed Recumbent - 4/2003


     

Bruce has been building his bike with guidance from Ron Horvath. The 'sandwich' technique is a great idea. 
He had this to say about setting up this phase of the project:

"I finally found a great (read cheap & easy) way to ensure that the tail section and the frame would be in allignment and stay that way while the epoxy dried. As you can see from the picture I used an L shaped section (held in the workmate) the same thickness as the frame section and a bolt and nuts to square it up where the back wheel goes. Just in case epoxy would'nt  be enough I also pierced the seat tube and lag screwed the tail section to the frame with 5/16 x 2 1/2" lag bolts. If that won't do the job I go on a diet."
