Greetings from western Massachusetts in the shadow of Mt. Greylock!

Just getting into bike building, have never tried it from scratch before.
Have built several bikes from the frame up but never from the floor up!

Have very little recumbent experience (have a friend in NYC who years ago bought a Haluzak SWB) and have zero on trikes.
Have somewhat decent welding skills. Although used to welding a lot thicker material.
Well see how that shakes out.

Purchased plans for the warrior and street fox.
There's a nice new rail trail right by my house that's itching for a cruise this spring. Also have family on Cape Cod, where there's another beautiful rail trail.

Pretty excited to get started. Have been collecting materials for a month or so now.
As soon as the crocuses poke their heads out of the snow you'll find me out in the garage.

Anyway, this seems like a great forum, with a lot of experience.
Guess I should start data-mining ASAP.

Hi, Zach...Welcome to the Madness...!!

There are several of us 'Bay Staters' in here, so you'll feel right at home. We speak the same lingo with the familiar "BAHSTEN" accent...!!!

I usually ride the Canal Access road along the Cape Cod Canal.
A couple of the boys in here are from the Cape area so you may see them on the rail trail.
I'm sure they'll be introducing themselves to you soon.

Glad to have you with us, Zachary....We're looking forward to seeing your projects. Be sure to keep a camera handy to show us pix of your progress.
