Because of it's multi rear wheels it's going to make all other recumbent bikes obsolete.

Makes me wonder if I kept all my scrap iron I've dug up if I could build something like that. I'm both envious and repulsed at the same time. Would have plenty of room to strap a detector, gear and a cooler full of beer to it. Wonder how hard that thing would be to peddle up a hill.

Neat bike, but if I was going to do all that I'd consider making something like this, great if you can do an all day hunt and want a place to relax occasionally

You could get a DUI on a bike back in the 70s, even though I never did myself. That was in Arkansas. I expect that it's even easier to get a DUI on a bicycle now.

Back in the 70s ,,really ? Today , I wouldn't doubt it at all , not that I'm condoning drinking and driving , it just seem's they're not allowing us to have any fun. They don't even like us detecting , much less drinking and detecting , then its public drunkenness . But the 70s , I was drinking and driving back in the 70s one time , got pulled over , and the cop just told me to go home . I was lucky , I know , but on a bicycle back then ?

Big trees ? I hunt a lot of fields (no trees). Simple fix, get on your knees, back to the road. Dig your target, squirt in the hole. Always fill your holes! Nobody's the wiser. Now, if I could just figure out how to avoid the muddy tip.

Default 3 wheel bike

My wife has been wanting me to get a 3 wheel bike to ride around the subdivision this summer to drop a few lbs. With a 3 wheel bike the dog could ride with me he loves to go for rides, and walks. While it has been to cold to detect we have been going on walks in different parks to check out spring detecting locations.

NOTE: at the time I posted this the pictures are not showing up, could be something wrong with the forum that needs fixed.
I think my dog would like any of those. There would plenty of room for a detector if some one wanted to rig one up.
