Kingcycle Hachi

This is what I got when I sat down with a blank sheet to build my vision of the ultimate unfaired
racing recumbent. Very satisfying to be racing on a bike designed and built by me - for the full
story of designing and building the bike, please follow this link.

For going very fast on a race track. And that's it - this is definitely not a street bike!
