Over the Winter we‘ve laboriously furnished our Workshop with junk from the street and tools from flee-markets and ebay…. and now there are two bikes (allmost) ready to hit the streets!

The cargo-bike is receiving its paint job right now (the same paint by the way that was used last winter for the Tandem) and has successfully been test driven!

And I‘ve been working like crazy yesterday to get the recumbent done so that I can have a first drive with it.
Seems ok… did some seat adjustments since then – and the pedals might be a little to high … but we ll see … I ll do a little more test driving befor I hack it appart again

Hopefully one or better all of these bikes will join our Tour this summer…
