Title: Mystery recumbent
Post by: bikemad on July 12, 2011, 09:07:19 pm
ok, so a few years ago a friend of mine picked up two of these bikes at a yard sale.
to date, one of my favorite bikes to just cruise on. yes it does look a liuttle beat up but trust me. very comfortable.
anyways, no one that is a bike enthusiest has been able to tell me who manufactured these. im guessing by the tubing it was made sometime in the mid to late 80s.
so if anyone out there that has knowlege of recumbent could tell me who made these and where i can get one i will be forever greatfull

sorry, never seen anything like that square tubing with a backrest. You might try posting the same inquiry at bentrideronline.com

There are many crank forward bikes on the market these days. Try hitting RANS.com and I think Giant makes some, too.

Looks kinda like a Re-bike to me. Company no longer exists.

Right. Probably a Re-bike. A Canadian retiree at the condos where I worked had one of them. Looked plenty comfortable.
