Vague idea is to make a semi recumbent stretch, sitting down in front of rear seat post!
On a recent yard sale score, met a custom builder who had fat tired stretch, which kinda inspired me!(I thoroughly enjoyed the test ride, but it was perhaps too cumbersome for any kinda distance riding)
When we discussed my bike problem, they replied they had 100 and 30 or so, and I noticed some gargantuan bars, an almighty 37" across, 26" pullback! I offered $20, he told me $10!
Getting started this afternoon, I removed front seat and rear bars, slung on said wide bars and bungeed a seat on!
Wobbled around the yard, semi hunched!
Thinking of a 3 speed coaster, I have two shifters, a tall SA, short Shimano, might mount one by/on first riders now empty seat post...
Pretty pleased with today's start, very thankful how the last build off encouraged me to be productive, although I probably won't enter three bikes this time..

Looks like rear derailleur wont fit with the nexus 3 coaster, I wonder if I will need it for tension..
I trial fitted the black wheel set from my Electray, pedals too, glad the back end now seems fatter, was concerned I may need fenders for balance.
