How to build a recumbent trike out of bamboo

a recumbent trike made from bamboo poles

I was pretty much amazed when I found this tutorial of how to build a recumbent trike from bamboo poles. As same as when I saw another tutorial about making a recumbent seat from plywood, which was not onlyabout the seat itself but also about how to make a steam machine at home. Quite impressive. Bamboo bicycle frames start to be popular and also few recumbent bikes has been build from bamboo already. I have seen at least two of them during the Annual Czech Recumbent Meeting. So if you want to see those two tutorials click on two links here under.
