I was just in the process of doing this same thrread! I've got a 1960s road time trial fixie, a uicycle and some other home made 'hybrids' but my most unusual machine is my DIY/ Kit recumbent from Dutch Bikes (http://www.dutchbikes.nl/index.htm) sadly no longer availabe. It was great fun to build and draws attention everywhere it goes although it's a little heavy and needs a few tweeks still.

Cool, I've always fancied one of those but never had the space or it. Pity if they have stopped making them: looks like it'll be plan B - the wooden 'bent..

I'm going to have to make something, ride it and photograph it, and get it on here!

Thanks Graham. This MB sounds fun!

A new board all for us. Yippee! (Looks around and admires the space.)

I've a QNT, red wide ratio gears with no name and a Grey Kettwiesel called Tirpitz because it's Big Grey and German! They share a Streamer fairing and the same 57 year old engine, well past its best and with many failing parts.

On medical advice I no longer ride two wheels, so I've just sold an Azub-4 and have several 2 wheel DFs and folders for sale.[

I had a Brompton for four days. Then somebody turned left into me.

I have a Hase Pino semi-recumbent tandem (my son sits on the seat at the front) and a Pashley PDQ recumbent. Had a Brompton until it was stolen. Am now deciding what folder to buy on the never-never (aka cyclescheme).

Windcheetah with front fairing and rear streamline box :) Have also had mudguards and rear rack on it in previous times.

Unicycle, but its tyre is a bit flat.

Really nice Dutch bike, which is not odd at all, apart from in the UK :(

My main interests are in the machines especially when they are different. So at the moment I'm really enjoying my DF trike (not sure you can classify a trike as a DF but you know what I mean) My list of bikes runs to 10 or 11 and they are mostly completely different so i have things like:-
DF trike
'bent trike
DF tourer
Brompton
Dahon 20"
old tandem
trials bike
mountain bike
Tag along
nomad trailer
Work bike (Gary Fisher hybrid)
Roy Thame DF (SA 3 speed)
With a selection like that i can always find something suitable for the mood of the moment !!
