Welcome to Leon's recumbent folder page. I want to make a recumbent folding bicycle which is easy to fold, but still is a real recumbent. In April '99 I made a first draft and sent it to a DIY article in the Dutch HPV magazine 'HPV Nieuws'. Bauke Muntz made a beautiful drawing of it, see above. After that, I went to play with Moray for Windows to make a 3D drawing of my design. It is a very nice application!
