Wasn't that the Nigel Frost (Director of London Recumbents) sponsored copy of the Ryan / Radius long wheelbase models called the "Spirit?
Lee Cooper is a frame builder from Ryton-on-Dunsmore, just south of Coventry. He builds bespoke frames, and he shows his work on his website. He also builds (or did do) frames for other makers, such as Bob Jackson. http://customcycleframes.blogspot.co.uk/. he built a one-off recumbent for himself in the mid-nineties, modelled on the geometries of the Crystal Engineering recumbent of that time. When he put it up for sale on ebay about 8 years ago, I snapped it up
I posted details of it on the Thread "Pictures of your recumbent" Page 13 http://forum.ctc.org.uk/viewtopic.php?f=24&t=15204&start=180. The photo wasn't that good and I'd modified the bike since buying it (OSS instead of USS, and hub brakes). But, I still have it, and ride it regularly. And it's heaps of fun. Steady as a rock. Battered, Bruised. But, alive and kicking.
